31 Day Challenge - Day 12 - Stripes

Anything nautical is good in my books. Again it’s SO cute. I’ve done nautical nails before but I wanted to do something different. Quickly I ran into a problem, with my white nail polish being difficult. I had to try and use more of the other colours i.e. blue, red. But I searched some pictures on the Internet and this one design kept coming up. It was ultra cute and turns out it was from The Beauty Department (really adorable blog and so informative). 

I was wondering how everyone’s stripes were turning out so perfect, until I read the tutorial. “Use a French manicure kit”, at that moment I realised I had one and ran to get it. I didn’t see any other reasons why I would use it. That French manicure kit has proven immensely useful; I didn’t think I’d use it at all. I spaced some out a bit unevenly but otherwise it’s good. Mildly difficult to cut with scissors, I didn’t have any other fancy tools so scissors had to do. I was careless and got a massive chip on my thumb on my right hand, thankfully the sticker covered it over. I’m loving Radiant so I had to use it to add to the blue. And the hearts just make it adorable. 

 Colours used:
Dark Blue: Barry M – Indigo
Blue Glitter: Revlon – Radiant
