Twinsie Tuesday - Beach Inspired Nails

This week, the theme for Twinsie Tuesday is beach inspired nails.

I began mine on a base of Color Club Over the Moon with a little silver Harp on It near my cuticles.

I started out with my thumb and tried to do a holographic sunset scene sort of look, but wasn't in love with it,  so I though why not go beneath that beach water for this design?

I remember when I was little, when I learned that fish swam in schools, I once asked my mom if they every graduated, and imagined baby fish together being an "elementary" school, teenage fish being in a "high" school, and so on....

Well, obviously fish can't hold these graduation ceremonies while all us noisy, pesky humans are in their water. They have to wait until the sun goes down.

Therein lies the creation of this mani.

I used tons of different polishes for all of my little creatures!

The lighter yellow is China Glaze Lemon Fizz.
The orange is ChG Peachy Keen.
The aqua blue color is ChG For Audrey.
The pink in the starfish is a mix of Zoya Adel and Belle.
The graduating purple fish is Zoya Reagan.
The yellow graduating fish is ChG Sunshine Pop.
Their grad caps and all the eyes are Zoya Storm.
The cap tassels are Zoya Song.
The yellow sky part of my thumb nail is Color Club Kismet.
The sun is Color Club Cosmic Fate.
Lastly, the rays, bubbles, and water reflection is done in Zoya Adel.
