Seashell and Starfish Nail Art

Hello there!! How you doing? Haha hopefully well, I have a summer design today as the summer is still here (though September and school is fast approaching *ultimate sad face*). I used a cutepolish tutorial, well I just used the picture cause it's super cute and super cute is my favourite adjective. I changed it up quite a lot and the result is...different (in a kind of good way). Her's are WAY cuter, just saying.

I like it but my seashells are so messed up. I couldn't find a way for them to look ok so I let them look weird and wrong. I like the starfish though especially the metallic pink dots, I'm glad that polish worked way better than I expected it to.

The difference being the colour scheme and I jelly sandwiched for the base. It gives a kind of sea feeling, but pink sandwiched in green worked better in my head than in real life.

Green: Barry M - Greenberry and Topshop - Green Room (jelly)
Both polishes are virtually the same colour (I'm almost 100% certain they are the same colour), I compared them on a sheet. I would never do a nail comparison with them as the difference would be so clear. Greenberry is a careful 1 coater, Green Room is minimum 5 coats and it's not even opaque (I was very disappointed the 1st time I tried it). Green Room will forever be my green jelly.
Glitter: OPI - Minnie Style 
The white square is peaking out on my ring finger and I like that.
Dark Pink: Barry M - Fuchsia
Metallic Pink: Barry M - Boots Xmas LE 2012 B (really opaque :))
Purple: Illamasqua - Jo'Mina
Dark Purple: OPI - Plum And Get It

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day!! :)


  1. So funny, I just watched that video! I love the turquoise and purple together!

    1. Haha cool coincidence!! Thanks, I just really like those polishes!! :)

  2. You are so talented, I really liked this. I've also always wanted to make a "under the sea look" :D I just found you through the nail snails nomination.. ^^

    1. Thank you so much!! :D You should try it, it's not too hard!!! Glad you found me from there :)

  3. Whoa this is like the perfect sea themed nail art! :D Totally in love with these! You did a great job with the execution and creating the background effect as well as seashells and starfishes! More than that, I am super in love with the colour scheme here! Stunning!! ♥

    1. Thanks!! I wasn't so sure about the colour scheme or the seashells but I feel my confidence in them is reformed!! :)
