I had big outdoor swatching plans today but the sky decided to be grumpy and put away the sun! Stinky winter right?
So tonight I've got some nautical themed nail art to share.
OPI Alpine Snow, China Glaze First Mate & Millennium with decals
I love nautical inspired fashion so this was a really fun mani for me. I couldn't find my striping tape so I just cut strips of regular sellotape and tried (and failed!) to make an even pattern!
I did the regular blue and white stripes on every nail except my accent which I painted silver and blue instead. I thought it'd standout but it's pretty subtle actually. In most of the photos you can't even tell. Next time I'll introduce some red, yeah?
I used water decals from Born Pretty Store to complete the look.
|Compass Anchor Pattern|
These were very easy to work with. You just cut them out, remove the plastic covering and lay face down in water until the backing card is fully soaked. Then to apply, just slide the decal off the wet card and push on to your nail and leave to dry. If you want to re-position the decal all you have to do is wet it again and it'll slide around for you. Once it's perfect seal it with 1 layer of top coat. I used Seche Vite above.
