Sea Shells with Mariana

Our Beach Manicures

I was so delighted when the gorgeous Mariana Linares (who is my Stamping queen) agreed to work on a manicure with me.  You can find her awesome manicure on instagram  (she also has a blog which is beautiful, but not quite up to date due to pc trouble.

We decided to forget Autumn for this and do a beach themed summer manicure.  We used a base layer of stamping to show the sea on the sand. Then added shell decals with corals and pinks.
