Even though it's officially the end of summer, I had to do one last set of summer nails! My wonderful friend Melinda was awesome enough to let me put this crazy set of summer nails on her as a final kickoff to summer! On a Monday afternoon, I sat down with my sketch pad and a few colored pencils and sketched out this set of nails. I knew I wanted a cute crab and a beach umbrella and pair of flip flops; the hard part was making my drawing come to life with acrylic. After the set of nails I did last October for Breast Cancer Awareness, I thought a cute bikini would definitely compliment these nails.
3D acrylic crabs, flip flops, and boobs made these summer nails PERFECT! I hand painted the sunglasses and a couple swirly suns.
I loved the idea of a cute beach umbrella and beach ball. The designs are 3D done with acrylic.
