31DC2013 Day 5 - Blue

It is already day 5 of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. The theme for today is blue and I couldn't resit doing some nautical nails. This has been on my to do list for a while and like most things on that list, it is hard for me to find the time to do it. This challenge has been a great motivation so far to actually make time and attempt the ideas floating around in my head...


The base of this manicure is Zoya Sailor from the Cashmeres collection. With a name like Sailor, it just couldn't be more perfect as a base. I stamped the wheels from Cheeky plate CH49 using Maybelline Bold Gold. This is actually a full nail image, but I chose to use just sections of it in random areas of the nails. The ship is also from the CH49 plate and stamped using Essence Stamp Me! White. Using a small detail brush I painted the ship silver...





I'd love to know what you think of this manicure! Comment below :)

Thanks for looking!

  11. I love nautical nails! I am also doing this challenge and did sailor theme for the blue day. I especially like your little ship, you must have used a super tiny brush for it..

  13. Thank you so very much everyone! I'm glad that you like this nautical look! I tried going for something less typical :)

    @Andrea and @Emiline, it does look a bit dream like or like Neverland with the white ship 'floating' on the blue! Thank you :)

    @Angie, I am definitely loving the longer length for nail art! Not always loving it for daily activities though. LOL :D

    @blingfinger, I wish I was so good as to paint that ship! It is stamped with white polish and then I painted the base silver! hehe :)

    @Swaafie, thank you very much! It definitely gave me more flexibility in positioning that way :)
