Lazy Days of Summer - Pool Party

When I saw this challenge I immediately thought of nice inground pools in people's back yards! One thing that sticks out to me about those pools is how clear and shimmery they are and how they always have gorgeous tiles on the bottom and walls.

Pool Party:





Polishes Used:
-Nailtiques - Formula 2 Plus
-Essence - You Belong to Me
-Sally Hansen - Blizzard Blue
-Out The Door - TopCoat

I think that you can see what I was going for here, by using the round glitters I am trying to achieve a "bottom of the pool" look (but not in that gross grimy pool sort of way, lol). Also, using the Blizzard Blue over the YBTM looks just like clear water to me. :) Very simple but I love it.
