Step 1: Apply Base Coat
Apply base coat. This step is important to prevent damage on your nails because of the products you’re applying. Leave the base coat to dry.
Step 2: For the Pinkie and Pointer Finger
Apply the white nail polish to your pinkie finger.
Layer turquoise blue, baby blue and white nail polish on the cosmetic sponge. This will provide the gradient for the ocean effect. Dab the sponge on your nail. Clean around the edges by using a q-tip dipped in acetone.
With the use of the stripping brush and white nail polish, add more effect to the ocean-look by drawing the wavy lines. AWhen you’re done, apply top coat for protection. Repeat the process on your pointer finger.
Step 3: For the Middle Finger
Start with turquoise nail polish as base. With the use of the dotting tool, draw seashells on the surface of your nails. You can choose your own colors fro the shells. We used red and purple nail polish in this tutorial.
To make your nails prettier, draw 3-4 thin stripes within the shells. You can use the stripping brush and the turquoise nail polish. Looks good, right?
Select a few larger glitter dots from your glitter nail polish and put them in the empty spaces between the seashells. Apply top coat to seal the design.
Step 4: For the Ring Finger
For the accent nail, apply two coats of silver nail polish. Add more dimension by applying the glitter polish. Again, apply top coat.
Step 5: For the Thumb
Apply the turquoise nail polish for the base. With a dotting tool and red nail polish, make a dot at the center of the starfish and five dots around the center dot. Connect the dots with the dotting tool to have a perfect star.
For the final touch, apply white dots from the center towards its five arms. Then, place some larger glitter dots on the empty spaces. Apply top coat.
