Ahoy Matey!

Good Morning Everyone!

I’m super tired today as my soccer game last night started at 9, so I didn’t get home till 11:45, but we won! 2-1. I even stopped a penalty shot but ended up pulling my thumb muscle (pretty sad to say, I know!).

I am super excited to share my sailor inspired nails! I wanted to do something similar to this, but while painting my nails it just happened. The ideas just flew through me onto my nails (haha sounds so sappy), but they did and I am ecstatic with the results!

What I Used:
Base: Cosmetic Arts polish. It is a deep blue with hints of blue and silver sparkle. It is super subtle but amazing!
Dots: Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold (In LOVE with this colour) & OPI Angel with a Leadfoot (I know I’ve used this in the past 300 manis but its the perfect white! I’m going to need another pretty darn soon!) I used a large dotting tool for the dots.
Stripes: OPI (again…same as above) I used thin striping tape to create the stripes.
Studs: I ordered these anchor charms off eBay. I also have them in silver.

If you didn’t notice I changed my nail shape a bit. I don’t have long enough nails for the ballerinas nails I want, so I’ve just done a subtle angle on the edges. I’m hoping this will help with ripping/breaking.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope you all have a great weekend, we are supposed to have another weekend of amazing weather!

  1. I love this!! The dots are super cute to add to the nautical look! I would have to stamp the anchor though. My nails are bitty and I don’t like the way the charms feel on them. Super cute!
