Hey There, Sailor!


Hiii everyone!

I have a quick nautical design to show you today! From the vaults, as my nails are still restoring from weeks of maltreatment due to the exams. (you see, exams are good for nothing lol)

For this nautical design, I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, a Catrice polish that is so old the name has worn off, and OPI's Big Apple Red.


I freehanded the white stripes (which you can *cough* totally not notice as they are so straight *cough*).

I also used some gold studs, and an anchor water decal I bought fom Born Pretty Store - you can see those here on their website, and you can use the code XDX31 to get 10% off on your orders)



Voila, that's all there is to this design to be honest! The most difficult part was getting the stripes correct ;)

What do you think? Did you do nautical designs like this yet? I hadn't done a typical nautical design yet so it was fun to try it out!

Thanks for reading! :)

  8. You can never go wrong with a nautical mani. And I totally wouldn't have guessed those lines were freehand! I don't know if I could have gotten them that straight, haha.

    1. Thank you Emily!! You probably would get them straight like this after fiddling with them for about an hour lol. I was really wishing I had used striping tape at that point haha!
