Pirate Nail Art Challenge: Oceans

Ahoy, mateys! We’re back for another day of the Avast Ye Bilge Rats Pirate Nail Art Challenge (phew, that’s a mouthful!). Today’s prompt is “oceans” and at first I was a little stumped on how to proceed. I didn’t want to do something cartoony but how to show a more realistic view?

I saw a picture of someone in the ocean, looking up through the water to the surface above and thought – AHA! So I’ve tried to recreate the ocean as if someone was looking up to the surface of the water.

I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Burning Bright, then did a gradient with Burning Bright, SC Rainstorm, and Inkwell. I then tried to create shafts of light coming into the ocean with SC Snow Me White, but I’m not sure that came out so well.

Tomorrow’s challenge is Gold or Treasure, I can’t wait to show you what I’ve come up with!
