This Week’s Nails – Anchors Away

It is a wet and windy night round these parts and as I type this, the rain is battering down against the conservatory roof and it is so noisy…I think I prefer the snow!

I have been meaning to try out these nautical nail tattoos for a little while and had a play around with them last night. I have to say that I love the effect they have: delicate yet quite punk.


I wasn’t too sure what colour to use as the base on my nails so I stuck with the watery theme and picked a pastel blue, which I think works really well.


For those of you who were wondering how to achieve this look, you will need:


Your base colour

A clear top coat

Nail tattoos


A small bowl of water

As always, begin with clean, filed nails


Paint them with two coats of your base colour and allow to dry


Cut out your nail tattoo


Place the tattoo in a bowl of water for around 20 seconds

Carefully remove it from the water and gently place it on your nail


Once the design has transferred, seal the look with a layer of clear varnish


And there you have it – a very simple, yet effective, nautical look!

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
