Seashell Manicures Are Like Having The Ocean At Your Fingertips

You might not be able to hear the ocean, but at least you can kind of see it with this gorgeous seashell mani.

There's no doubt that being cozied up on a beach chair with a cocktail in hand is probably much more appealing than sitting in your office chair right about now. And while a quick flight to Cancun might not be in the cards, a seashell manicure that resembles a day on the beach can be.

Just like there's more than one way to enjoy a day in the sand, there's more than one way to achieve this look. Many ocean-lovers create a 3D shell look by painting thick acrylic gel lines onto your nails with a long, thin brush.

The real die-hards, however, sprinkle crushed shells onto a wet manicure and seal it with their favorite top coat!

Whichever your approach, it's sure to be a breeze. Check out some of these rad designs before embarking on your own sea-worthy mani!
