I've been battling a cold + exhaustion the past week, but almost nothing keeps me from doing The Digit-al Dozen theme weeks! This month our theme is 'summer' which is a little tough for me because it's so vague, but usually the hardest themes produce the more interesting manicures. Today I've got some swimming pool inspired nail art for my #ManiMonday x Digit-al Dozen manicure complete with a super cute pool floatie!
I was inspired by images of swimming pools with lone pool floaties for this manicure. I love the different shades of blue and turquoise and the abstract shades in photos of swimming pools and really wanted to re-create that on my nails!!
I used Cult Nails as my base coat, then topped it with a CND sparkle top coat. Then to get the first layer of pool-like texture I used the saran wrap method with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away! To add the wave-like texture I used a wavy stamping image from one of my Cheeky plates and Cult Nails Tempest (a white creme).
Finally, to add the swimming pool ring I freehanded the shadow first, then did the colored ring on top!
Don't forget to check out the other designs for today below!
See you back here again tomorrow for more summer-inspired manicures!
