Ocean Nails Inspired by the Caribbean

by Holly Schippers | September 28, 2015 | Bookmark +

Today’s blog is coming to you from the Caribbean! I am at the bi-annual #BeachesBFF event in Turks & Caicos. I have blogged about the event several times in the past, so for a different twist on things, let’s go for an ocean-inspired manicure idea!

The Caribbean is definitely a great place to set your #naileyes free to gather colors, textures, and pattern ideas. Simple and easy goes with the flow of the island vibe so here’s an idea that won’t take much time to execute.

Using your favorite dark blue CND Shellac or gel-polish, apply one coat to the nails and cure. Next, apply a blue foil with any holographic design in as much of a full coverage as you can.

Then, rub a complimentary color holographic glitter over the foil and it will stick to any exposed top film that the foil did not cover. Apply top coat and cure like normal to find a fun sparkling ocean look without any extra time in the service!

You should be sure to charge a minimum of an additional $10 to the service for this look. Enjoy!
