Dolphin Sunset nails

Hi everyone who reads this :)

The weather here in Holland is finally really like Summer and I loveeeee warm sunny weather. So I just had to make summer nails (again). And love how they turned out. I was inspired by a wooden painted dolphin statue, you can see it on the pictures below.

Everything is stamped even the little islands ;) only the blue/white waves aren't stamped.

A white P2 base, sponged with China Glaze Towel Boy Toy, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, OPI I Need Sunglasses, Essence 01 BBC Pink Heat, OPI Purple with a Purpose and China Glaze Beach Cruise-R. Added China Glaze Wireless Holographic topcoat on top. Stamped with HB46 (parts of shells for the islands),  BM315, BM320, H10, H18, M29 and S2. The white/blue waves are made with a small brush.

I love making summer nails especially sunset summer nails on the beach with palm trees :) I also plan on entering these nails in the summer contest of Nails and Stuff.
I make something like this every year you may remember these from 2010 Romantic Sunset and 2011 Romantic Night at the Beach..
but with those 2 I also used selfmade water decals..this year it is a all stamping mani :)

 Different light.

Without flash under artificial light.

Here you can see my inspiration :)

Also made matching toes again, stamped with BM315, M29 and GCOCL A02.

Again my hand with my inspiration in the background :)

Enjoy the weekend! I know I will with this lovely sunny hot weather :)

We also are going to celebrate my dads birthday...first one without my mom :( Last year even though she was really sick she/we organized a surprise party for him because he turned 60. She also said I wanna celebrate it because it might be our last B-day together :( I soo miss her and know my Dad misses her too.

Thank for reading I am really happy with the way my nails turned out. Just by looking at them it makes me smile and I imagine I am at this beautiful beach.

  3. Very cute and beautiful! I like all these summer manis. Good luck with the competition! On sad days I try to find something I like to do that can make me forget. But I guess we all deal with things in different ways, so that doesn't help for everybody.
