Try This At Home- Nautical-Inspired Nail Art

Today I wanted to share with you a fun spring nail art design! Most often, we lean towards the florals for spring right away. Here’s an idea that incorporates spring trends without a floral in sight! I used mint and a silvery-grey color, but you can use any two colors as long as one is light and one is dark. Let’s get started!

What You’ll Need:nautical1

You’ll need a bobby pin or small paintbrush, one light color of nail polish, and one dark color. I recommend trimming your nails to uniform shapes before beginning! I used Black Poppy nail polish in grey and Sally Hansen in Green Tea. The green tea polish is a lovely mint shade that I just adore. It dries very quickly, applies smoothly in just one coat, and lasts about a week! It’s one of my very favorites. The Black Poppy polish is one that I’ve had for a couple years, and unfortunately the line has now been discontinued 😦

nautical2Step One:

Start with your nails clean and dry. Apply the Sally Hansen Green Tea polish to all nails and allow to dry completely before proceeding.

On your ring finger, place 3 dots of the grey polish in a triangle with the end of the bobby pin-it’s great for making polka dots!

nautical6 Step Three:

Using the bobby pin, connect from the left dot to the right dot in a U shape. Add a line going up from the middle dot, and then add a small circle on top of it. Finish off the anchor by making the left and right dots into little triangles. Voila!

nautical7 Step Four:
  
Add a large stripe down the middle of each nail, with a smaller stripe on either side. Congratulations! You’re all done! You are now sporting some of spring’s biggest trends on your nails-pastels, nautical themes, and stripes!

If you prefer, you can add a top coat, but I didn’t bother. Don’t forget to take a picture of your nails when you’re done! If you post it to Instagram, feel free to tag me! 🙂 Link below.
