I’m back from my family trip to Costa Rica and I couldn’t feel better! What a beautiful country and place to spend two wholes weeks in! It was a great bonding and learning experience for me! I have soooo many great photos of wildlife and I’ve been thinking hmm maybe I’ll do some nail art to match. Yea, how about a string of Costa Rican wildlife themed nail art woohoo for good ideas!

Speaking of good ideas here’s one I had before I even left for my trip. It’s funny because I did this design in the beginning of June but I somehow didn’t get it edited and out until nowwww, the first week of July so yea ya know I hope it still helps some people and you enjoy it! Using a wonderful semi-new product from April of Pipe Dream Polish I was able to achieve these crisp clean lines of red, white and blue. Clearwater is a clear coat of polish, not a base or a topcoat, just a clear polish with the intention of water marbling with. Hence the middle finger with the sparkliness which is Pipe Dream Polishes ‘Cha-Ching’ overtop of Aenglands ‘Excalibur Renaissance’ as this thick glitter was easier to apply and take off with this silver base.

I of course tested out which colors to use before putting them on my nail and OPI’s ‘Eurso… Euro’ and ‘Red Hot Rio’ took the cake. My white base is the ever faithful ‘Carpe Diem’  from Cirque colors, I’m already on my second bottle.
