1. Polish a nail tip with China Glaze’s Kalahari Kiss.


2. Make a marbled effect using China Glaze Electric Pineapple, and Color Club Factory Girl and Jade White polishes.


3. Create a diagonal sand line using matte NYX Brown, and scattered sand using yellow paint. Apply blue crushed seashells on either side of the sand line.


4. Using light blue paint or polish, paint ocean water diagonally in the corner of the nail. Apply the larger shells and a frog.
