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!
