We had seen these wave nails done here from The Nailasaurus and since she put up a tutorial, we wanted to try it out. I liked how they turned out, but in hindsight, I think I would've been happier with them if the background color was a darker, richer blue instead of our pale one.
Sorry for the crappy iPhone pictures. Didn't bring my digital to her house that night.
Here's a closeup of one nail.
Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy(not pictured)
Base color: Sally Hansen Frozen Solid
Wave outline and base: Sinful Colors Why Not
First layer over the waves: Sally Hansen HD Spectrum
Highlights in the waves: Sinful Colors Snow Me White and the unnamed sea green from American Eagle
Glitter over the waves: Sally Girl #118
Sponged on the crashing waves with: Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Sally Hansen Diamond Ring
Top Coat: Seche Vite(not pictured)
All in all, I think it was a pretty good job. I just would have changed the background color, and made the waves take up more of her nail.
What do you think? Thanks for reading!
