New 31DC Day 25: Inspired by your childhood




I did a lot of swimming when I was younger. I was on the swim team for probably 7 years, and took lessons for years before that. We spent so much time at the pool every summer. Practice twice a day and swim meets every weekend. It was great.
 
I started with a glitter sandwich, inspired by this look from Essie at iHeartPrettyPolish. Since I saw her mani, I have been searching for Revlon-Royal. I finally snagged a bottle in a recent blog sale :)  Anyway, I started with 2 coats of Royal, then added 2 coats of LA Colors- Sparkling Diamonds, then topped with one more coat of Royal and topped with HK Girl. 

 

I added the waves on the tips with BM-216 and Sally Hansen- Blue Away. The image didn't want to transfer very well, but you get the idea :) I like this one better without the stamping, but it definitely reminds me of the pool.
