Dreaming of Summer Nail Tutorial!

Summer is just a few short days away for me, yet it can't come fast enough! As most of you know, I am in the midst of finals at the moment. So I haven't been posting recently, but I will get back into my regular schedule soon. Anyways, these pictures are actually from the end of last summer, and I remembered I never posted it. So this tutorial isn't my best, but it was really fun to do and I still got a lot of compliments on it.

First you want to start out with a blue, an orange, and a white. I chose a coral and turquoise as my "blue and orange" but any similar color will look fine!
First paint the blue as your base. I know mine was a little messy, but you can still see the point!
Then paint on orange stars! As you can see, some turned out better than others!
Next put little white dots on the stars to turn them into starfish! As you can see, I used the end of a paint brush since I don't actually own dotting tools. Ends of bobby pins work well too!
It kind of got dark outside before I finished... but here is my favorite one!
Last but not least, my thumb. 

I hope this tutorial gave you some inspiration, and I am hoping to do more nail tutorials soon since a lot of my readers seem to enjoy them! Please request any you would like me to try below, or tweet me!
Tell me what your summer plans are down in the comments!

    That Revlon turquoise on it's own is really pretty, but the starfish are too adorable.
