Summer Challenge: Day 55 - Surfin USA

I wanted to do something different with this challenge...well I always want to do something different!  One of the lovely ladies in the Crumpet's group posted a really neat design a couple weeks ago that I knew I had to do for this challenge.  The design Beaching Nails did reminded me of surfing, click here to see her design.  I made some slight changes but kept the basic idea.

I started with 2 coats of OPI Fly.

I added my "wood" using BM309 and OPI A-Taupe the Space Needle.

For my greenery I used BM309 and Zoya Meg, which actually didn't show up that well.

Using BM309 and 318, Essence Black is Back, Milani White On the Spot and OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips, I added the extras.

And topped off with 1 coat of HK Girl.

I think my blue was too dark for this design and takes away from the extras.  Should of used something lighter or maybe a different color.
It kind of has that Hawaiian shirt feel to it that makes me think surfer...Don't you???
