A nautical nail art. Anyone like to sail out to the sea? Actually, I am quite scared for the water. What if the boat sinks and I am trapped inside? I find it super scary to die by drowning. It is probably one of the worse ways to die?
Anyways, I created this dark manicure with some nautical images and it reminds me of some haunted pirate ships. I love how I did the base with a dry brush. I think it would looks great on its own.
I am using the water decal BOP169
You can get this here:
Polishes I used from left to right:
Sally Hansen Triple Strong Strengthener
Sinful Colors Endless Blue 1052
Maybeline Salon Expert Black is Black 700
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
So first, I painted 2 coats of the base color. This Maybeline Black is my all time favorite black. It is just so black! It dries super fast and applies super evenly!
When everything is dried, drag a dry brush onto the nails add some texture and colors. Make sure your brush is very dry first. Do some practice on a piece of paper.
After you have wipe away the excess polishes onto a piece of paper, do it to your nails. I love this look. It will probably look great just as it is.
After everything dries, cut out the image you wants to use and remove the top clear film.
Soak your image in a bowl of room temperature water for about 5 seconds.
The image will slide off the piece of paper by now.
Then just arrange the decal on your nails as you like. After you have finish arranging all the water decal, apply your favorite top coat to seal in the design. Add some studs or rhinestones to make it more interesting.
I like how busy my nails look here.
