Nautical Nail Tips

I've run out of ideas this week so I was gonna do a swatch post today. Then I realised I have absolutely nothing interesting to swatch so I wanted some simple nail art. Whenever I tell myself I'm going to do something 'simple', it nearly always takes longer than, say, a full stamping manicure because I get caught up in the 'simple' details! I suck at drawing tips but I always think this time I'll nail it, even though I never do!
So basically, I'm trying to say that when short on time, I should not attempt tips. Even if it seems like a simple option.

The base colour is Cult Nails Cruisin Nude. I used Barry M White and then Miss Sporty 320 with a striping brush for the tip detail. I finished it off with two coats of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

  5. They look pretty good- I do not have steady hands so mine don't come out nearly as straight as these.

  11. I like this one, nice contrast with the colours. Really looks nice with your skin tone too. Anything beige or taupe looks like rubbish on me :(
