It Went A Bit Nautical

Yesterday I decided to take the day off of blogging to get some much needed cleaning done around the house. (My polish obsession has gotten in the way of my house chores!)  However, instead of cleaning I spent the evening play video games.  :)  Maybe I can get to the cleaning this weekend! :) (If I don't have to do my nails!)

Back to the mani....
I was getting kind of blocked on design ideas, which I find very frustrating, and then I decided to try a taping design.  I was going to use spring colors and when I decided on the following polishes I thought they were spring-y, but when I was finished the design looked more nautical.  Not saying that this is bad...it does look pretty cool.

First, 2 coats on each finger of China Glaze White on White, Ahoy and Electric Beat, I wasn't going to add Electric Beat to my collection, because I have a lot of blue, but how can you say no to such a pretty color!?!  On my thumb, I used both Ahoy and Electric Beat.




Here are all the stripes of tape I cut for the stripes.  I used painters tape, but I am thinking that I would probably get cleaner lines with scotch tape.


The finished product with 2 coats of OTD.
