Nautical Nails

Every once in awhile I get an urge to try something fun and colorful with my nails. I usually have a nude color on my hands, so for me to jump to Turquoise and Cacaos, it is a big jump!

I got today's nail inspiration from Pinterest:

I started with two coasts of Essie's Turquoise and Cacaos. 


Then I added white lines with a white nail pen.

Then I added the small black anchors with another nail pen. 

This was a fun little project; however, I am far too impatient to wait for three different layers to dry before I can move on to the next step. I will say this may be my favorite Essie color I have come across.

So so cute Mia! And I love The Turquoise and Cacaos...unfortunately, my husband does not. Whenever I paint my nails a unique color he will stare at them and make comments like, "why'd you do that?" over and over again. Annoying. LOL!

Now THAT is adorable! If I tried that, it would look like a 5 year old tried. Oh well, such is life! 8)

How freakin cute! My hands shake too bad to paint my nails...ridiculous...it looks like my 2 year old cousin did it when I paint them.

So pretty! Love the minty color. Although I'm with you - it takes too long to let everything dry.

Super cute! But there is no way I would have the patience to do this myself.
