Happy Birthday to me: Dutch Island Texel nails

Hey Everyone,

Today is my birthday :) And the day the Summer officially starts here in Holland. Normally I make some sort of tropical summer nails on my birthday, but I had no time for something like that this year. So that is why I want to show you some typical Holland beach scenery/landscape nails I made in November 2011. I went to one of our Dutch Wadden Islands called Texel. It was really cold and windy there (almost winter) but also very pretty and we had fun. I do plan on making something like this today on my nails for one of the other islands..Terschelling.

It still is Soccer/Football month here, even when Holland isn't in the game anymore ;) I still have some older World Cup creations to show you. And a lot of other countries are still playing so you can always get inspired to make something in different colors for your own country :) But since today is my B-day I wanted to show you something else ;)

Base China Glaze Kaleidoscope: It's my turn, Let's do it in 3D and Kaleidoscope Him Out (on some a littel bit of He's going in Circles)  Selfmade water decals of different things you see on the island a beach pole, seals, the lighthouse of Texel, seagulls, a seal and the word Texel. Stampes some feet with HB26 and SN brown, brids in the sky H18 and SN black, clouds M79 and SN white and some grass of M66 and M29 SN green. I colored the seagulls with a Essence nail art pen.

Different light.

 With flash.

On Texel with the actual beach pole in the background.

Here a picture of just the holographic sort of gradient base.
The blue sky, the gray/blue sea, and the golden sand :)

Here some other funny pictures of that short holiday in cold November/December 2011.

My sisters dog Yoshi, my big sister and me on the boat to Texel.

Me at the large and windy beach with the beach pole ;) You can see sand waves of the wind ;)

Yoshi is playing in the sand :)

At Ecomare the seal rescue/care center.

Look at those cute big eyes...soo sweet.

 Feeding the seals and the seagulls are trying to steal the fishes.

Walking to the lighthouse to climb it.

View from the top of the lighthouse.

 The lighthouse.

My boyfriend is lifting the lighthouse..LOL.

I look ridiculous (like a penguin) but it was sooo cold, and my hair flew away ;)  I had fun walking in the foam on the beach. And Yoshi the dog loved to chase the flying foam

It almost started to rain.

 Sometimes having long hair is annoying :P hahaha.

In the harbour with sunset, a seagull just flew away.

It was a lovely trip even though it was cold and rainy, we had fun :)

Hope you liked reading this blog post, it will also give my foreign readers an idea of our country :)

Can't wait to go on my next short trip to one of the other Dutch Wadden islands soon, since it is Summer the weather should be nicer, but I am affraid it is also going to rain....well that is Holland ;)

I was really happy with these nails. They are probably one of my favourites ever, so that is why I wanted to show them to you on my birthday :)
