Summer Challenge: Day 8 - Swimming Pool

This is the challenge that almost didn't happen.  I was so tired last night, walking around the house like a zombie, and really not feeling it.  After some soul-searching :), I pulled up my big girl panties and got to work.  I really don't want to miss a day and would like to complete every challenge!

Because I was so tired, I opted for a simple design, stamping!  I decided to do a close-up of the water after someone jumped in, you know those circles that form afterwards.  When I started my mani, the sun was shining however I lost it halfway through so my pictures get a bit dark at the end.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze Sea Spray.  This is the first time I used this polish and I am so happy I bought it!  It is a gorgeous shimmery, blue-gray! Love it!

The second step was to add the circles using China Glaze Electric Beat and BM19.

I decided to add a swimmer as an accent on my ring finger.  It is not very noticeable because I used silver but I do like how it turned out.  I used Orly Dazzle and RA111.

I topped it off with 2 coats of SV.  You can tell the light changed because the polish color changed.  The accurate color is in the above pictures.
