Happy Monday Blues! For today's manicure, I wanted to go for a nautical theme look. I haven't really done any nautical themed manicures before and I've seen a lot of them from other bloggers so that has motivated me to create one. This one is a pretty simple one with just stripes and gold circle nail studs but I plan to try to create more complicated ones in the future. Let's see how they turned out then.
I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on all the nails. I created the stripes using striping tape and applied American Apparel Downtown LA on the top half and American Apparel Passport Blue on the bottom half of the nails. Peel off the striping tape while the polish is still wet. Then I applied gold circle nail studs from Born Pretty Store on the side of the nails. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.
These took a while to create but I'm in love with the end result. The blue and red combination is fun and the addition of the gold circle nail studs really completes the manicure. What do you think?
