Navy Nautical Nails!

Happy Sunday!
This week one of my good friends is leaving for Boot Camp for the Navy! She asked me to do a special mani for her, so here it is!

On my pointer and pinky fingers I used a base of OPI My Vampire is So Buff. Using striping tape I created lines with a Teddy Line Colore 85 I got when I was abroad in Italy and China Glaze Snap my Dragon (Avant Garden collection).

For my middle finger I used CG Snap my Dragon and painted on an anchor with OPI My Vampire is So Buff. On my ring finger, I used the Teddy Line polish again and using a striper, I spiced it up using Maybelline Color Show in Bold Gold.

Here is a close up on the anchor detail! I just love how this came out! 
I got tons of compliments on it!

I painted my thumb with CG Snap my Dragon and topped the whole thing off with 
one coat of Seche Vite.

Thanks for reading!


  1. When you say "striping tool" what exactly is that? Is it a particular polish that has a really tiny brush, or something else I can buy/make out of household items? Thanks!

    1. It is a particular polish that has a really tiny brush! I haven't looked at any craft stores, but I am willing to bet there are brushes there that will substitute. Otherwise, I recommend checking out the Dollar Store or Five Below for inexpensive Stripers! Christmas Tree Shop might be another good place to check
