Every summer my obsession with all things nautical comes roaring back. This summer has been no different. And it hasn’t helped that I picked up a navy and white stripped dress from GAP that I can’t seem to stop wearing!
Anyway. Every Thursday during the summer there is an after work event in uptown called Alive After Five. I was planning on attending and therefore had to have my nails and dress match (I don’t think normal people worry about this as much as I do). I wanted to play up the nautical theme as I was planning on wearing red shoes.
Instead of just doing a straight red manicure with Sally Hansen Madame X I decided to add an accent nail. For the accent nail I used butter LONDON Royal Navy and added a glitter gradient with butter LONDON Lucy in the Sky. I love the way this manicure turned out. Plus, it was easy to do and stuck to my nautical(esque) theme.
Unfortunately, the event I was going to attend ended up being rained out. But that’s ok, my friends and I did a little uptown bar hopping and there was even a selfie station involved.
There are, as always, swatches under the jump!
