I started with a base of Sephora Curacao, a polish that was a gift from my friend Kinga. Curacao is a slightly muted teal that leans more blue than green. It didn't photograph accurately at all so I had to alter the photos quite a bit for them to look like the real deal. This beautiful creme is so pigmented that it only takes one coat to make it opaque. I feared there would be issues with staining since it's so pigmented but I had no issues at all. Of course I used a base coat like I always do.
I decided to use Orly Rage again for the stamping since it stamped so well when I used it for last week's manicure. I picked an image from plate CH38 that has some beautiful seashells on it. It instantly reminded me of summer and went so well with the base color.
I hope I managed to bring the beach into your life for a moment with this manicure. Make sure you check out the other Monday Blues of this month if you haven't already!
Have a great week!
