Summer Challenge: Day 50 - Summer in the Hamptons

Wow, it's day 50!  There are only 16 challenges left!  Best part...I haven't missed a single challenge!!

Today's challenge is all about the Hamptons.  I have never been, but of course, I have seen it on TV, movies and magazines.  When thinking about the colors of the Hamptons I automatically think crisp white and blue.  I also tend to associate sports like tennis to the Hamptons.  In the end I decided to go with a somewhat sporty design, that you might find on a polo shirt or tennis outfit.

I started with 3 coats of OPI Alpine Snow Matte.  This is the perfect crisp, white polish.

I added my touch of blue using m64 and butter LONDON Blagger.  I thought this a great sporty design.

For the smooth and shiny, I added 1 coat of HK Girl and 1 coat of butter LONDON Hardware. This combo actually turned out being the perfect top coat.  My HK Girl was starting to shrink with 2 coats and with this combo that didn't happen.

To me they feel very Hamptons-like...what do you think?
