Nicole by OPI Nautical Doodle

Hi Everyone! I must confess that I'm a pretty bad swatcher. Whenever I swatch a collection, I get sidetracked and start dreaming up nail art ideas. I make no apologies though since I love bringing such spur of the moment ideas to life. This is one of the manicures that I created while swatching the new Nicole by OPI 2014 shades which I showed you yesterday...

To create this manicure, I used three of the new Nicole by OPI shades. I started out with a base of Sweet Surrender and stamped using This Blue is so You!. The stamping pattern is from CICI&SISI plate 02. I accented it by filling in the circles with the hot pink Something About Spring...

To complete the look, I mattified it using Nicole by OP Matte Top Coat...

With this color scheme, it reminds me of both something nautical or just a doodle on lined notebook paper. Since I can't commit to just one, I'm calling it my nautical doodle. What does it remind you of?

I hope you enjoyed this manicure!
Let me know what you think of it in the comments below :)

Thanks for looking!

  1. Looks awesome! I don't have this "swatching problem" as I just don't swatch at all, all I do is showing my full manis aka notd :-)

  2. This is so fun and whimsical. I love it!

  3. Hah! My first impression was of sheet music. I thought of musical clefs and/or symbols having been notated on the score lines.

    It is so pretty. Love the color combination - superb!

  4. Hello,
    C'est vraiment très beau, j'ai cru que c'était des nail patchs.

  5. I absolutely adore this! I can totally see the "nautical doodle" but the first thing I thought was vintage 4th of July. I will likely attempt this around Memorial Day or July 4 in crisp, primary colors! Thanks for always being such a good source of inspiration! :D

  6. wow!! it's perfect! love the mani!

  7. Very pretty! It reminds me of tentacles, to be honest :D
