Nautical Nails

    Today, I have a nautical inspired manicure to show you guys. The idea for this manicure kinda just happened while I was going through my plates. I realized how may nautical theme stamping plates I actually have...none of which were purchased for the nautical images. They were all obtained for other designs on the plate or in the plate set. So, I decided what the hell. I'll do a nautical theme manicure. After all I had the required equipment. It's still kinda summer right (Ehh, close enough). Anyway, no further blathering from me. Here's my nautical stamping manicure:


Indoor no flash. 

Indoor with flash. 

What I Used:

China Glaze - White On White
China Glaze - Man Hunt
Orly - Grave Mistake
Konad - White
Konad - Blue
Stamping Plates:
Cheeky - CH49 & CH36
Essence - 01 Have Fun
Shany - SH211

And a song that's kind of nautical...kind of...okay not really but it's Darren Hayes. I would hear him sing if it cost me my ears. Push play. Listen. Enjoy. You're welcome.
The Siren's Call - Darren Hayes. 

      I don't think this manicure needs much explanation. It's stamping nail art. I painted my nails then stamped on a design. I was feeling kinda lazy, but wanted more than just plain old nail polish. I hope you guys like it. To be honest I don't know all that much about all things nautical...we don't have a lot of boats in land locked Idaho. boating experience is kind of minuscule. I guess, we do have the Snake River but....about 3-4 people die in it every, it kind of conflicts with my life plan (of not drowning in a river, and I'm rather attached to this life plan). I have however logged many hours on boats while playing The Sims 3 Island Paradise. I'm going to pretend that simulation counts as experience. JK. Anyway, that's all I have for you guys today. Until next time, stay classy, and stay polished.

    1. It's Essence plate 01: Have fun. I bought it at Fred Meyers (which is a Kroger store). But you might be able to get it from Ulta as they sell the Essence products also.
