Lazy Days of Summer - Beach Themed

I recently joined in another challenge with some lovely ladies, the Lazy Days of Summer Challenge. I liked the themes in this and it's a "go at your own pace" sort of thing so it's not so much pressure. Here is what the Lazy Days of Summer consist of:


Today is Beach Themed:




Polishes Used:
-Nailtiques - Formula 2 Plus
-China Glaze - Electric Beat
-Finger Paints - Blue Raspberry Taffy
-Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
-Revlon - Radient
-Out The Door - TopCoat

I was going for a waves crashing against the shore sort of thing. I use Electric Beat and Blue Raspberry Taffy for a saran wrap mani base coat, sponged on some white for the cresting waves and then added the Radient for some sparkle to mimic the mirrored effect of the water. What do you think? What is your favorite part of going to the beach?
