Lazy Days Of Summer - Beach Theme Nails

Hello everyone :)
I was meant to get this post up yesterday but I had so much to do so I left for today. Anyway, I've started another new challenge! This challenge follows on from the April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge. Here's a picture of all the themes within this challenge:
 
The first post is Beach Themed! I knew what I wanted to do for this first post since we decided on the themes, so here's what I came up with...
 The beach and palm trees! When I think of beaches this is what I see in my head :P So I thought I'd recreate it on my nails for this challenge post :)
For these nails I used two coats of Jesse's Girl Girls Night Out for the base. I then added two coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky with a brush to create the sand. The sea in the background is two coats of Zoya Charla, again using a nail art brush. Finally, I used two coats of China Glaze Mahogany Magic and OPI Who The Shrek Are You? to create the palm tree.
I'm so pleased with how these turned out! If I'd attempted this a few weeks ago it would have looked awful :P My nail art skills are definitely getting better. I can't wait to do more of these challenge posts, they're so fun! It also helps that summer is my favourite season and it's nearly my birthday :P

Have you ever tried doing beach nail art? let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)
