Nautical Theme Nail Art

Nautical Nails

Yesterday on Twitter I joined in a challenge posted by @FBLbloggers. Each month there is a theme, and a new one starts on the 1st of every month. This is the first one, and whatever someone blogs about it don't matter, as long as its to do with the theme of that month. This one is a Nautical Theme, and with August just around the corner, I thought I would do my take on Nautical Themed Nails. I wanted to try to be different, and stay away from the usual red and white and blue and white stripes, but also stay with the theme. So opted to have an anchor and ship's wheel design, but polka dots and not stripes. 

These are the bits I used to create this design, I didn't even know that the stamping plate QA3 had an anchor and wheel pattern on it lol. Konad Stamping Polish in Red and Dark Blue. Technic Nail Polish in Midnight and 2true in Shade 41 for the polka dots. 
I started with two coats of white polish, stamped the design and the added the polka dots. Very simple to do, and looks very pretty. I thought this Nautical Theme would be hard to do, but I'm happy with the final result :) What do you think?

As I had only done my nails yesterday, and love whats on them, and a new theme with be out soon, I did this on my practice hand. But for the next theme I will do them on my nails :)
As always, thank you for reading :)
