Just two hours north of Pichilemu is one of the most beautiful coastal cities in the world. Viña del Mar has the beach and surf culture wherever you look. Reñaca is a famous beach break where we spent most of our time surfing. During any time of day at Reñaca you will see all the best Chilean surfers in the line up. My dad was given the opportunity to coach the Chilean National Surf Team and give them some advice on being better competitors. It was awesome meeting all the Billabong Chile team riders and seeing how the brands we have here in the States have made such an impact in other beach communities all around the world. Besides the surfing, there are all kinds of fun cafes, stores, and sandy beaches to lay on all day long. I brought my new camo jacket that perfectly complimented my overalls and striped crop top. This outfit definitely made a statement when walking along the boardwalk and helped me stay warm while still looking “cool.” My scarf (pictured below) added the perfect pop of color to my outfit and was even an awesome beach blanket for me to relax on while watching all the guys surf heats out in the water… oh and did I mention that we saw a few penguins while surfing?!

To get the head-to-toenail camo look, I turned to my favorite girly nail bar in Encinitas, the Leu Leu Beauty Bar for an expert execution strategy. And they nailed it (pun intended)….using eco-friendly polish of course. Read on for steps on how-to achieve camouflage nails… (more…)
