New 31 Day Challenge - Day 23 - Nature Inspired Nail Art

Hey everyone! I wish there were enough hours in the day to paint my nails and show you everything, but alas I must budget my time. Today I've got a catch-up manicure for the new 31 day challenge that is inspired by the beach. It's kind of simple and silly, but hey, when you're trying to get back on track you're generally not too picky.
I started off with a base of Wet N Wild Blue Wants To Be A Billionaire. Then I created a gradient using OPI DS Classic and a make up sponge. To make it really apparent that I was going for a beach theme, I added a squid with BM-307 and Konad Special Polish in Red. For the palm tree, I used Konad Special Polish in Green, China Glaze Mahogany Magic and a grocery store brand stamping plate (I believe it's SE-18).

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the gorgeous nails of the wonderful ladies participating in this challenge along with me!
