Tidal Wave

Doesn't this nail look give you an oceany vibe? It was semi-sort of not really inspired by a movie called Poseidon that I remember my mom and I really enjoying. I actually remember having guests over in our previous apartment to see the movie, which is pretty big since we never really host any functions at home. I also remember my mom constantly commenting on how much she loved the movie, almost as much as I would comment on how much I loved the movie Hollow Man and that was saying something. For the past couple of months I have been thinking about this movie and trying to figure out what it was called. You would think I would just ask my mom but that's too easy and I have a terrible memory and always forgot to ask but one day in my dorm I couldn't stop thinking about that movie! I went online to find the title and after a few minutes of googling I found it! I now feel like I have satisfied my desire but do find myself occasionally thinking about the movie and when I thought of a blue gradient the first thing that popped into my mind was a huge wave ultimately leading me back to the plot of the movie. I decided to look up the movie again and was reminded that it's setting is on New Years Eve! How appropriate to have this Poseidon inspired nail art for my first manicure of 2015? Well, maybe I'm the only one who thinks so but that's okay.

Blues from lightest to darkest:
Love & Beauty by Forever 21 - Sky Blue
NYC Color - Boat Basin
Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Brisk Blue
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Blueberry Blast
(Black) Prevail - I Love The Mightlife
(Glitter) OPI - Last Friday Night

I went with a darker gradient to avoid a summery type manicure. I really enjoyed the way it came out and it actually reminds me of ocean as it progressively gets darker as if it's getting deeper. Also, I just love that every time I look at my nails it reminds me of a movie I loved and brings back good memories with my mom, what else could I ask for?

Hope You Enjoy!
