Rejected from the beach

Hey everyone! Today's nail design was one of my original designs for the beauty and the beach competition, but I felt that it didn't quite make the cut. Nevertheless, I wanted to share it on my blog because it's still a design that I've done and this blog is a document of my designs. I have a couple more still to show you too which should be up in the next couple of weeks.

I'm not sure of the exact colours I used, but I know that the base is OPI - Gargantuan Green Grape, probably with Barry M - Yellow sponged on top, and then Barry M - Blueberry for the sea. But I do know that the black is the black Barry M nail art pen, and the silver is Clinique - Strappy Sandals

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!


  1. This is AMAZING! You're so talented!!

  2. this is breathtakingly GORGEOUS!! i can't tell you how much i love it, its beautiful!

  3. So beautiful! It reminds me a song (Holiday - Scorpions):

    "Longing for the sun you will come
    To the island without name
    Longing for the sun be welcome
    On the island many miles away from home"

    ... I think I need some Holiday, isn't it?
    Have a nice day!

  4. I really like the colour combo in this design (how you get a gradient to look so nice, I don't know, it seems like a skill that escapes me LOL) but it would have made a lovely entry IMO.

  5. It's beautiful, you've put an amazing amount of detail on your nails, brilliant job x

  6. 'I felt that it didn't quite make the cut'
    hahahahahah!!!! ... hahaha!!!! ... hahaha!!!!
    Alice, I swear, you're trying to kill me here! Didn't quite make the cut!? Honey, this is beyond wow! I love everything about it! The soft hint of foam on the sea, the black rocks, the whole end of day feeling of the gradiented sky and the palm trees are great and original! Tsk, tsk! 'didn't quite make the..' honey, you should be ashamed! :P heheh
    I love this <3

  7. Wow these are so great! Reminds me of the secret island they find in life of pi. You never fail to amaze me!

  8. WOAH! I know you're called 'One Nail to rule them all' but still, one of my favourite manicures EVER! Love these seriously so much

  9. this inspired me to do a simular beach scene but with more sunset colors. i used insta dry snappy sorbet for the base and sponged on a pink color. then i drew palm trees on my ring and thumb fingers with black

  10. adding the silver makes it look so realistic! love this!!
