Digit-al Dozen: Beach Vacation

Greetings and Nailutations!

It's a Digit-al Dozen Week!!  This week our prompt is vacations!!  Sign me up...when do we leave!?  :)  Today we head to the beach!  Hitting the ocean, playing in the sand....and all that jazz.

Let's get to the details!

While I love the ocean - the sound of it, swimming in it scares me.  While in Hawaii, I realized I liked snorkeling, but once the reef drops off and I can't see the bottom - it turns into a fear of water!  Who knew?  I also don't like seeing strange "beasts" in the ocean with me.  While swimming around looking for turtles in Hawaii...we saw a bunch of people on a rock overlooking where we were pointing.  I look to see where they are pointing and I see a sting ray - OH HAIL NO!  I tried jumping on my husband's back LOL!  But today, we will focus on the good things of the ocean.  :)

Products used:
Fair Maiden Polish - Hyper, Happy, Daring, Playful, Flirty, Shy
Painted Polish - Deux
Ribbits Stickits - Un-frog-gettable Cuticle Cover (press sample)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat (press sample)
What's Up Nails - Jumbo Stamper
Dixie - Summer 02 Plate (from Lantern and Wren)

I started with a base of Hyper and a white creme. Over Hyper, I double stamped with a white and Deux.  Over the white did a dot gradient of all the Fair Maiden Polishes and then stamped with some fun beach images!

  1. That is so funny! I live on the ocean, I love the ocean 🌊 But when I read your opening, I think I feel the same way. And if I saw a sting ray in the ocean, I would react as you did 🤣 Love your ocean-inspired mani

  2. I live in Hawai'i. Few years ago, I told my husband that a baby shark (cute but with distinctive fins) swam by me. I dismissed it and walked away. A week later, a shark was caught on video in the same area. Mama shark! So I feel you with the stingrays! Lovely mani by the way!!!

  3. I want to go to Hawaii! Yeah I'll keep my distance, and where my feet can touch the ground! :) Ha, today a shark flew over me tho! Yes you read that correct, a bird caught a baby shark and flew over me with it!

  4. Such cute stamping! Haha, I am like you, I am scared of the water and won't go in very far past my knees.

  5. Those are so pretty!!! I hate going in water, but i think it’s pretty to look at.

  6. I love the pastel rainbow nails. Really cool mani.

  7. The pastel rainbow nails are terrific. Wish I could do this!

  8. This is such a cute combo!!! I love the mix of shades and patterns!
