Yay, it’s Monthly Mani day!! These posts are some of my favorite posts for a few reasons, but mostly I love the fact that it gives me an excuse to spend some time on myself, playing around with nail polish and just having fun. And of course I also love seeing the creativity from the other participants each month – it’s so cool to see the different interpretations of the same theme!
Which brings me to this month’s theme: nautical! Nearing the end of summer, a nautical themed manicure seemed like the perfect way to feel stylishly cool despite the heat. I decided for an all blue and white manicure with some fun accents, including my favorite white glitter.
To start, I painted my nails with the base color of choice for each nail, either navy or white. Then, I added my accent designs by painting stripes with my nail art pen, polka dots with my dotting tool and glitter with my favorite glitter polish.
The polishes: “I Saw… U Saw… We Saw… Warsaw” by OPI // “French White Tip” by NYC // “Snow Globe” by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure // Nail Art Pen, shade #11 from Born Pretty Store (coupon code in right sidebar)
I had a lot of fun with this month’s theme, and I am so totally in love with my nails! And the best part is, it was super simple to pull off! I might just have to pick up a couple more of these nail art pens because they really make it easy. Have you ever tried a nail art pen? Are you fans of the nautical trend??
As always, thanks for reading!
