It's time to drop the anchor~!

Because i have no idea how should i name this design.. lolx..

Hey sailors~ ^^/
Weather's been quite cool lately, make me lazy to get out of bed.. @v@
but too bad i have to, cause it's study week now! which means my exam is getting nearer.. :(

Anyhoo, let's talk about nails first, haha...

You probably get the idea from the previous picture..
paint your nails french and entire nails as your preference or go on randomly..
I'm using blue and white, but there's other color for nautical so you can choose what you like..

Next draw thin lines at the outline of the french with the 'opposite' color ( for white base use blue, white for blue base), but i don't have much patient that day so i grab my black thin tip brush to replace blue.. :p

Finish up with thicker 'lines' after the thin lines..

for the ring finger, let's add a cute anchor! ^^
you can use stones, or purely nail polish to dot it or draw it out, but for my level of polish drawing, i still prefer to use beads, haha..

Seal with top coat and you're done~~ ^^v

Credit to Nail Up July copy.
i think i'm gonna do all the design in it until i get another copy of nail magazine.. lolx..

Ok, back to study! >v<

But you wouldn't be seeing these long babies for awhile, cause i just chop them all short! :p
feel like letting my nails rest since i'm busy with studying for the mean time..

tehee, it's good to have one, so i can have better matches and arrangement before starting to paint. but well, 'free style' is still fun.. ^^

Hi Nisha! Thanks for visiting and oh, great now i have company too, hehe..:)

Kayleigh said...

Wow! Truly amazing! I think it was a good decision to use black lines instead of blue ones. Looking forward to your next design. Good luck with your study!

Lois said...

This is just TOO pretty! I love it sooo much, too bad I really can't handle those little beads :(

Unknown said...

tehee, i'll definitely use blue ones if i have it with thin brush.. :p
Thanks a lot! do take a look on other design at the mean time.. ^^

Oh thank you! Well you just need some patient and 'strategy' and it'll be easy..

*i start it with straight vertical line, then the small circle on top, then finish off with the horizontal one then carefully on the smile line.. hope this is helpful.. :)
