I know this might be a stupid question, but do you marble? And if so, how do you get it to end up like that? (:

It's actually alot simpler than it looks. First I did a gradient, then did a water marble over top using clear and black polish, finishing with a glitter top coat. It's pretty easy but a little time consuming. If you are unsure how to water marble, cutepolish on youtube has a video explaining it really clearly. :)

Now that you say that it reminds you of shells... it completely reminds me of them, too... Abalone, in specific, only with lighter hues.

Great job! Again, I've said it before, but it bears repeating now; I'm a fangirl for your nails.

I did a gradient first layer, then a marble over top using clear and black. Then a glitter top coat. I also found the little beads at the dollar store, and just used clear polish to glue them on.
