Since I went all out for yesterday’s prompt, I thought I would take things a bit easier today. I probably should have done a little more than what I did, but I guess hindsight is 20/20.
So instead of doing the stormy seas and sunken ship that I had originally planned, I just did a view of the open sea. I started with a base coat of Kleancolor Pastel Blue, and dry-brushed a gradient with Zoya Sailor, OPI I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, and Hard Candy Frenzy. I used FingerPaints Paper Mache and a Model’s Own black striper for the clouds and bird.
I think it’s pretty. Not overly fond of the puffy clouds, but the ocean is the star of the show anyway. The gradient photographed really well too, and it actually kind of looks like a picture of the ocean should. I am glad I went with such a simple design for this. It’s a nice break from the more complex designs I have been using for challenges recently.
Tomorrow is a different story though! I have every intention of going back to more detailed nail art for the gold/treasure theme!
