The one with the birds

No this title has nothing to do with my mani for today.  I am writing this on my last day at the beach, but when you read this, I will already be home missing the sound of the waves.  The craziest thing happened when I went down to pick up some shells. Suddenly I was surrounded by seagulls. I think they think I had food for them.  Here is a pic of them.


Isn't that crazy?  I just stood there and they just sat there staring at me!

For my last beach mani, I decided to do a simple but oh so cool layering experiment.  I recently did a swap with Gypsy from Gypsy's Glitters. If you haven't seen her stuff-you really need to.  She does some cool designs.

First up, as always, the silly bottle shot.


Oh yeah, that's my polish chillin' in the sand, catching some rays!  This is Pam's Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean (cause I'm at the ocean!) and NYX #129.  I can't read what the color name is if there even is one on the bottle.  It's so dark and tiny so if you know the name, please let me know!

I started with two layers of the NYX.  This is a dark purple shimmer.  This is PRE cleanup-I knew I was layering more, and I'm on vacation, so I was lazy!

First let me say my camera is showing this as purple!! I am still excited about that. Second is this not a freakin cool purple?  I have never used NYX polish before and I have to say that it is really nice.  Perfect consistency easy placement-I usually need more cleanup than you see here with most polish.  So I was pleased with this brand.

Next, I did a layer of Cosmic Ocean.

Isn't it so cool what this top coat does to the purple?  I couldn't capture the teal and blue colors it also changes to in certain light.  But trust me, it's there.  I then did another layer of Cosmic Ocean and topped it off with my funky french using the NYX purple I started with.  So you can see just how crazy different just a top coat changes it. I wanted something simple but it's oh so very cool.  Here are your shots.

How cool is this?  Two polish that makes such a simple yet awesome mani!  I am in love with Girly Bits polish!  Plus I am loving this NYX brand.  Gypsy sent me three others and I hope they are just as good.

I leave you with a few last pics of the ocean.



I may have more beach pictures to come.  I just can't get enough!

I hope you have liked this mani as much as I have.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
