Anchors Away!


A couple of weeks ago, when I was preparing for the Beauty Bar Las Vegas event, I decided that not everyone shared my hatred of things stuck to my nail, so I bought some nail art bullions. No one decided to get any nail art utilizing them, so I decided that I'd give the bullion nail art another go, to see if I could stand it. Today's design is a nautical/sailor theme, and I did the anchor in silver bullions. I like the look of it, although I think I'd prefer them to be gold, but we'll see how long the design lasts before I ultimately pick it off. :-D


I used MAC Vestral White as a base, with ULTA Moody Blue for the tips, and ORLY Candy Cane Lane for the anchors. Applied the bullions when the first coat of Seche Vite top coat was still wet, then topped it all off with another coat of Seche Vite top coat.

How Naughtycal.

  3. I've always wanted to give my nails some bling ... I might give it a go as well! Can I be redundant and say I love the nails? Do you always want us to be positive or can we infuse some criticism at times as well? I'm a writer and get frustrated when people always say they love what I write because sometimes it's crap and I know it ...

  4. I am like you. I don't like adding things to my nails that stick out. I hate even having nail polish on that is too thick. It drives me insane and I pick at it all day.

  5. I'm on the fence about adding embellishments to the nail. A rhinestone here or there is okay but I have that fear that if i have something on my nail that sticks out too much it might get caught on something and it'll rip the nail off.
