Fun Summer Beach Nails (optional stamping)

It's scorching hot here in the UK, which made me think of summertime, beach inspired nails.  Bright colours and fun prints are combined in this design which is totally stamping optional, so don't worry if you don't have any stamping supplies.  You can switch the pattern for polka dots, simple flowers or even wavy lines.

Beach Nails Bundlemonster Stamping

Fun fact - the design was inspired by a top a hooker was wearing in an episode of Law & Order, Season 13...yup.

Items Used -
Barry M 'Blueberry Ice Cream'
Orange and White Acrylic Paint
Konad White Stamping Polish
Bundlemonster plate BM 215  (from amazon)
Seche Vite Top Coat
If you're short on time simply do the design on your ring fingers, and paint all the rest solid blue!
