Nautical Neon


My nails today are a bit random! I wanted to do a nautical/anchor theme after realising it was an easy design to do with a nail art pen. However I didn't really want to use blue and white because I've seen it so much before in nautical manicures, and bright blue isn't my favourite nail shade. Instead I decided to pick a colour I was more keen on, so I selected Beach Bag by Models Own which is a lovely neon orange/peach shade. Very summery!

After two coats of this, I added the anchor and stripes with my black and white Barry M nail art pens, and then some studs from a stud wheel I got from River Island (in the sale!) I also added some holo glitter (Barry M) that I won in a giveaway from Rebecca at Lanes Lacquers - I love this as it's quite subtle but adds an extra something to a manicure! 

I'm not sure what I think of this mani, it seems a bit random, but it'll do until I am back to work! Why is it that I am full of design ideas all week while I'm at work and can't try them out, but once I have some days off my mind goes blank?! Haha. Hope you're all having a good week x


  1. I love it! Looks great with the studs and glitter :)) xx

  2. I love this! Using pink for a nautical nails is such a great idea and I love the glitter topper too! :)

  3. Beautiful nails! I always think that unusual colours for nautical nails look amazing and I love the neon pink you chose :) Lovely manicure! xx
