Hurried beach mani

Every February, I meet my parents in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a few days.  I am there as we speak!  Normally, when I know I'm gonna be on vacation, I set up a bunch of posts so I don't have to stress about my blog.  Well this time I didn't.  Today's mani is not my best work, nor are the pictures in my normal poses.  My cuticles on my pointer finger are scary and I didn't want to cause you all nightmares so I cropped them out.

I was in a total hurry when I did these-we were going outlet shopping (hello new purse!). I almost didn't even post these.  I was not thinking clearly when I picked out the colors of polish I brought with me either! I'm embarrassed by them!  So to soothe your eyes, I have included several sunrise beach shots that are very cool.

First up, the silly seashell filled bottle shot.


I just love picking shells up from the sand.  My house is filled with them.  I have been coming here since I was a little kid.  That's a lot of shells!

Here we have Essie Armed and Ready and OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know.  I started with the Essie.  This is a cool olive khaki with gold shimmer.  It's totally my kind of color. Here are your shots.

This really is a cool color!  I just love it.  Before we continue, here are some sunrise shots of the ocean.

I just love the way the sun glows through the clouds.  Maybe before I leave, I will get a sunrise without the clouds!

Back to the mani.  I then took Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and plate DRK-A and stamped kitty paw prints.  Since I am away from home, I miss my babies!  I then added some dots and topped it off with my funky french with the OPI.  Here are the results.

Again, I apologize for the quality of these pictures, I really didn't want to show my angry cuticle on my pointer finger.  While I like these two colors together, I am just not happy with the way this mani came out.  It's a big fail in my book!

Let's instead go back to the ocean sunrise shall we?

Oh how I just love being at the ocean.  I wish I could live in a house on the beach. Wouldn't that just be amazing?  I sure think so!  Plus, the sound of the ocean waves are soothing and overall being here just makes me happy!

On a side note, I have a nice purse I want to sell.  It's a B Makowsky bag and I'll put some pictures on my blog sale page.  It's in almost new condition since I have only used it about once a month. If you are interested, check out my blog sale page.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
