I wanted to replicate this by using a sponge technique on my nails with coastal colors. Since our Washed Ashore e-book just dropped this week as well, I thought this tutorial was quite fitting.

Dear Katie, if you had been caught picking a "wild" golden poppy you would have been heavily fined, like to the tune of $500 soooooo please do NOT encourage your readers to go to California to pick the flora and fauna. Being a 4th generation Native Californian I find it very bad practice, and if I had seen you I would have probably slapped you along side your head for it.
