This manicure was inspired by a design in Nail Up, my favourite Japanese nail art magazine! ^-^ I knew I had to try this out right when I saw it! The design seemed really simple to do, yet it portrayed the nautical theme ever so perfectly!

OPI Big Apple Red NL N25
Step by step tutorial:
1. Apply white polish on nails until opaque. I used three coats of OPI Alpine Snow in the pictures above. The polish was a bit streaky but workable. By the way, you can always have the same design on all nails if you want! : )
2. When the polish dries, paint on two red stripes. Tip: Divide nail into six equal sections and approximate the average thickness of each stripe...OR just paint on whatever you like, I don't think it matters all that much! Teeheehee! :D
3. With blue nail polish, paint a thin French tip along the free edge of the nail.
4. Stick on gold sequins to the ends of the stripes to complete the look. : )
P.S. I just remembered that I also took pictures of how I drew the anchor for the design on my middle fingernail. I shall post them up as soon as I get them edited! XD
Thanks for looking! Love you all!
