Looks familiar…

So after the 5 years of painting my nails, it was bound to happen that I’d create a duplicate design and here it is. It was only after I’d finished them and had a good look at it that I got the whole ‘I’ve seen this before…’ feeling. What’s even more freaky is that the lines are hand painted for both designs (I could have used striping tape for either), I’ve painted the same amount of stripes on each finger bar my index (I could have painted them thinner or thicker) and I’ve also chosen the same finger to have the charm on. I didn’t realise I was so predictable! The previous anchor design is here, which do you prefer?

Marlin Fishing…

So these images are from a large, rectangular stamping plate I bought waaaay back in August last year, and this is the first time I’ve decided to use it. How crazy is that?! (Or rather disgusting, I mean surely that’s a sign that I have far too many nail art items but…)

I used loose glitter to create the blue/silver ombre: I regretted that decision after only the first nail as there was immediately glitter everywhere. For the images I used the reverse stamping technique with my clear, squishy stamper.

Avon Nautical Nails…

So these anchors are from Avons Colour Trend collection. I have a few Avon nail polishes and I do quite like to use them, I’ve never used any of their stickers though. I found them easy to apply as they were pretty sticky, when I applied my top coat they didn’t curl – a problem I’ve had with other stickers, and they were only £1.50.
