These are nails I've been wanting to try out for a while now, seeing as my darling fiancé (I don't know if I'll ever get used to saying that) is a sailor for the Canadian Navy. He's currently at sea for the week, so before his ship left the harbour I sent him a picture of my nails with a cute little note :P
I kept these simple enough, but a quick google search will yield amazing nautical nails that are floating around the blogosphere!
I started with a base of GOSH - Silver, then using small strips of tape I added a coat of Essie - Bobbing for Baubles on top of the silver to create the navy stripes.
For the accent I just used one coat of Bobbing for Baubles (such an amazing, opaque, navy creme polish with an equally amazing formula!), and using a striping brush I drew on the anchor using the silver polish.
And to add a little cute touch, I used a medium sized dotting tool and China Glaze's Hey Sailor and added the little red hearts on the tip of my nails!
