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.
