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
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!
