Good-bye, Summer!

First of all, I would like to say Hello to all my new followers! Thank you so much!
I truly appreciate you all!
Today I really wanted to do a fun post saying "good-bye, summer!"
Since today is the last official day of summer (in the USA), there is no better time!
While I imagine some of you may be heart-broken that the warmest, most carefree season is over (unless you live somewhere warm all the time!), I know there are some of you who love fall!
Just like me!
So... I wanted to do my nails of things that remind me of summertime.
For this manicure I used real sand that I brought back from Punta Cana on my pinkie - inspired by the beautiful beaches there. I also added a little silver starfish!
On my ring finger I used real jean material that I cut into my nail shape - inspired by cutoff denim shortie-shorts.
Then I did a orange-yellow gradient inspired by the warm summer sky!
Then I did a glitter-y blue/green combo on my pointer finger - inspired by mermaids!
Don't judge me, they ARE real! :p
I will list all the polishes used at the bottom of the post.
The colors I used were: China Glaze For Audrey on the pinkie. China Glaze Lemon Fizz and Essie Meet Me At Sunset on my middle finger. Essie Dive Bar, OPI Fresh Frog of BelAir, and Sinful Colors Hottie on my pointer finger. My ring finger is just jean held on my a base coat underneath and a top coat.
Some questions for you guys!
1. Would you like to see pictures of the actual polish?
2. Where are you from? I'm really interested! I think other cultures are amazing!
Thank you soooo much for reading! I really appreciate that you take time out of your day to visit!
