Life’s a Beach…

So we recently took a trip to South Queensferry. It’s a quaint little place with tea rooms, restaurants, ice-cream parlors and gift shops. The larger restaurants that face the Firth of Fourth usually have huge windows meaning you’ll get some amazing views (I can personally recommend ‘The BoatHouse’ for a good view and good grub) but if you know you’re going it would be a good idea to book in advance, as window tables are often reserved. South Queensferry also has sandy shores meaning it makes a pleasant walk when the tide is out and the weather is nice. I, of course, had a bit of a shell hunt and picked up some little enough for some nail art as well as some seaglass which I’m using on another (soon to be revealed) secret project.

I thought the Revlon polish ‘Beachy’ that I recently received would be an apt base for my shells and sand. As impracticable as this mani would be, I thought it turned out pretty cute!

As sad as it sounds, I thought just the sand and ‘Beachy’ base made for an interesting look. If you look closely enough you can really see what the sand is made from – little bit of rocks, shells and goodness knows what else. Usually sandy beaches are that fine, smooth, yellow/white sand – how boring compared to this!
