Anchor Mani Nautical Sailor Nail Art Design Rhinestones Kinetics Fashion Blue OPI Red China Glaze White Out

Harrrr dear reader!

Today I created an anchor mani. I really like sailors and their anchor tattoos, as well as anchor earrings, bracelets and all that kind of stuff. Recently I've seen lots of nice things with this sailor theme and I can't help it, I just looooove it!

My base colour is Kinetics - Fashion Blue, a great deep medium blue creme. It applies really good, this is so easy to handle and because of the smooth formula the polish ends up even on your nails. I'm wearing two coats. This is my first Kinetics and good news for us Dutchies: the Dutch webshop Alice & Jo's sells it! I used China Glaze - White Out for the tips and after that OPI - Red to put a smaller line under the white tips.

I've created the anchor with one of the stripers I got from Daph (thanks dearrr!), the Nail Art Pen by Nubar in the colour Gold Frost. After that I took out my ruby and topaz rhinestones for some extra bling. Also, I really need a new top coat because mine get all bubbly. All of them. I'm in the process of thinning them all so hopefully that works and I can use them a little longer.

And! I thought it would be fun to do some tutorials once in a while so if there's something you'd like to see, please let me know! :)

Have a nice day!

I love this! In high school we were the sailors and this mani makes me feel a bit nostalgic.
