Summer Challenge: Favorite Summer Song

Ah ma gawd I did it again!! I had this entire post done and I added the inlinkz code and it wiped my post and auto-saved. Grrrrr Blogger, you're starting to irk me!

Here we go again ...

Today is Day 3 (or 5, I'm not sure how we're counting here) of the Summer Challenge, which is Favorite Summer Song. 

I decided to do Kokomo by The Beach Boys, which I wasn't sure how to translate on to nails. I guess that's why they call it a challenge right? I decided to do beach waves (based on this nail design).

I decided against top coat because I liked the textured surface of the waves.

Products Used:
Deborah Lippmann Let's Hear It For The Boy (light blue creme/background)
Milani Beach Front (light blue with silver shimmer)
Milani Sail Away (dark blue with silver shimmer)
Sally Hansen White On! (white creme)

Don't forget to check out everyone else's nail art for today! I'm so behind, I have a lot of posts to check out!
