#glamnailschallengejuly – Sand

A new month, and I thought I’d try a new challenge, so I’m doing the #glamnailschallenge this month. And I’m only two days late with the first prompt! Nothing like starting out how you mean to go on… Anyway, the prompt is sand. I recently did beach nails for #clairestelle8june, so I wanted a different look for these.

I chose a pretty coral polish, grabbed my stamping gear and came … Continue reading #clairestelle8sept challenge – Coral
