Crumpet's Nail Tarts - August 21st - Surfin USA

For today's Summer Challenge in the Crumpet's Nail Tarts (formerly known as Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge) we are doing Surfin USA.
I do love this mani, but I must confess that I picked a time that was rushed for me, and I got impatient with it and didn't do the best job. :-(
I decided to do a gradient with this mani, I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors in Let's Meet then sponged on Wet n Wild in French White Creme and finally Sinful Colors in Savage. I'm not really happy with this gradient, I couldn't seem to get a good flow between the colors.
 Anyhoo, I tried to stamp a bikini on, but it didn't work very well with the lighter colors so I painted surfboards free hand instead. Like I said, no my best mani.
Don't forget to check out the other Tartlets!
