Nautical Nail Art

I love doing nail art despite the fact I'm not that great at it, but the more I do it the better I get so maybe by the end of the Summer I will be a pro? Who knows.

Whilst everyone else was watching the Football I chose to do a some nail art and decided to do a little anchor sailor design. I used Barry M Blueberry for a base coat and on the ring finger on both of my hands I painted an anchor. I used Andrea Fulerton stripe brush for the anchor, I started with a circle on top then a line straight down a curve at the end and I attempted to do little triangles on the end and then just did a line across the middle.

I only did the anchor on one nail on each hand because I think if I did it on every nail it would be a bit over powering and OTT. I painted the tips of my nails on all other fingers with Mavala Orange which I got free with an Elle magazine, however I wish I'd gone for a lighter coloured orange so it looks more Springy.
