Nails: Nautical Manicure with Nail Tattoos from Skin Art

Happy weekend, hope you're all having a lovely one! Today I've got some really cool Nail Tattoos* to show you from Skin Art. I was also sent a couple of limited edition Nail Art polishes* too and the colours I received really inspired me to create this manicure! I hope you like it!
To create this manicure I first applied a coat of Sally Hansen Miracle cure - I use this in a desperate attempt to try and repair my poor tatty nails and also to make sure there's no staining, I've found it works wonders for preventing that! Next I applied a few coats of I Live In An Igloo* over all of my nails. Then I (very roughly) drew a stripe of Out Of The Blue* across the middle of each nail.
I can only sing praises for these great nail polishes by Skin Art UK, they coverage is great, they apply nicely, dry relatively quickly and the brushes are a really nice size for application. I even found that they resisted chipping pretty well - it even managed to survive a shift in The Lizard, which normally totally destroys anything I have on my nails!
You've probably guessed by now from the colours I've used and the stripes, that I decided to go with the nautical theme. The little anchor Nail Art Tattoos* were perfect to complete the manicure. I decided to alternate the black and outlined anchors. The stickers are really delicate, so I used tweezers to lift them off the sheet and stick them to my nail. They stuck down immediately and couldn't be moved - so you've got to line them up perfectly before you place them on your nail!
Finally I applied two coats of It's Crystal Clear* a really amazing top coat, especially for the price!
I absolutely love these Nail Tattoos* and I really can't wait to use the rest of the stickers! I've already got my next mani planned and I can't wait to show you! What do you guys think? ♥
