Nearly Nautical

Hi everyone!!  I was in my closet today and happened to notice a cute little navy blue dress with thin white horizontal strips, and it dawned on me that I haven't done a nautical mani in ages!!

I stared off with two coats of China Glaze First Mate, a navy creme, and three coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, a white creme with a grey undertone, to my ring fingers.

I started to go with the traditional stripes!  I had my tape all ready to go and everything.  But then I thought about how many nautical manis I see with stripes, so I decided to go in a different direction.

With my medium and small dotting tool, I used both First Mate and My Boyfriend Scales Walls to create the dotted line pattern.

For a little something extra, I used Konad Special Red with Bundle Monster plate BM-08 for the anchor on my accent nails.  I finished with one coat of Poshé.

I hope you all enjoy this one!!

Happy Painting!


  1. Very cute! I never would have thought to use dots in a nautical mani. Genius!!!

  2. This is completely adorable! I like that you went with something other than stripes. So fun!!

  3. Oh these are awesome!! So adorable!! Your artwork is always so flawless! I was just gifted a set of dotting tools from a super sweet fellow nail-stuff addict I've made friends with through Instagram. I'm super excited to start playing with them! :)

  4. I love this. I may have to copy your idea. :-)
