For this manicure I used dELiA*s Nail Polish in Blue-Mint, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polish in Coral Reef, Love Charlotte xo Polish in Peach, Pure Ice Polish in Don't You Wish & a double ended dotting tool.
Start off with a teal or blue base, making sure it's nice and opaque.Then, use a colorless glitter polish and paint over the blue on any nails that you will not be putting starfish on. I did this on my pinky, middle and index finger. I had to use 4 coats of this glitter to get it as sparkly as I wanted. To create the starfishes, I used a coral polish and the larger end of a dotting tool. Then, dot or drag the tool in the shape of a star. It's okay if it's not perfect because starfish sometimes have legs that are longer or crooked. Make sure the starfishes are completely filled in with polish and let them dry. To make them look more like starfish, use the smaller end of a dotting tool to create little dots on the starfishes. Using a peach polish, I put one dot in the middle of each starfish and two dots on each leg of the starfish. Now, add the glitter used on the other nails between the starfish. Lastly, add a top coat if you wish.
If you want to add to this nail look more, you could use coral "caviar" beads on the starfishes to give it more of a starfish texture. You could also put coral flocking powder (found at craft stores) on the starfishes to make them fuzzy!
