nail art: nautical stripes
I got my hands on a Models Own nail art pen last week (thanks, Angela!), and I’ve been doing variations of the same mani ever since. Stripes, stripes, stripes, I just can’t stop. This blue and white mani looks very nautical, or very J.Crew. Both are good.
I started with China Glaze First Mate (a rare one-coater!) and used the nail art pen to paint diagonal stripes halfway down one accent nail. Any thin nail art or makeup brush will do. I got some white polish around the edges, so I dipped a small brush in remover for a quick clean-up job. Make sure to let the stripes dry completely before adding a top coat so they don’t smear together. Anchors away!
