Nautical Nails

Hi guys :) We've managed to post twice in a week, woooo :) Here is a quick tutorial on Nautical Nails as we both thought that it has been a LONG time since we did a nail post. Don't be afraid to try it, it's dead easy!

First step is to paint your base coats.
I chose red for all of my nails and white for my ring finger :)
Using Nail Art Pens or a cocktail stick dipped in polish, draw on your beach chair style stripes,
i did blue and white alternating. Leave out your ring finger so that you can draw on it later.

On your ring finger draw an anchor in any colour you'd like, i chose the blue to keep with the nautical theme.
 An easy way to do this is to draw a circle at the top of your nail, join that to a cross, then put a semi circle at hte bottom, but it's up to you :)

A quick review of the white nail polish I used :) It's essential to have a white polish in your collection,
this is by far the best white i've used and it's also great for homemade french manicure, cheap too!!

The finished product :) Perfect for those summery days when you wish you were on holiday already :)
