Ahoy Matey! It's some Nautical Art!

Ahoy Matey!

Today I have some nautical nail art to show you! A few weeks ago I was teasing my boyfriend about getting him to paint my nails and he said he would help me come up with themes and I could paint them. He immediately suggested nautical! He said I needed an anchor and wheels and some of those life preservers. So here is it


I used Orly's Royal Navy as the blue, I thought it was appropriate no? And then added white rings using China Glaze White on White with a nail art brush. Once that was dry I took China Glaze Vermillion and added the red parts of the life preservers with another brush. For the ropes I combined OPI Samoan Sand with Wet n Wild Shield and drew with a nail art brush. Then I took OPI You Don't Know Jacques and added the details on the rope. For the anchors and wheels I drew the original shape with You Don't Know Jacques and then mixed Wet n Wild's The Wonder Yellows with Samoan Sand and Shield and drew on the more sparkly details. 




I had so much fun doing this nail art! I think I will be challenging myself and trying more freehand drawings soon! What do you think of nautical nails? Do you like to freehand your designs? 

Until next time,
Sincerely Stephanie
