Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Flag - Nautical


Hey all!  How are you all doing on this fine Tuesday?  I'm am pleased to say that this Tuesday the Twinsies are back and posting!  In the month of August we took a little break to re-group and enjoy the rest of the summer.  I"m not going to lie, this post creeped up on me and I kind of wasn't ready for the break to be over.  Plus it's a super busy week at work and I most likely would have skipped today if it weren't for the group.

Regardless, I'm happy to be back.  Today we are sharing manicures inspired by flags.  Since I keep my manicures on for a few days, I didn't want to have an American flag themed manicure because I would have had to explain myself over and over again.  So I found inspiration elsewhere.  I looked up the New York State flag and in the middle of the flag there are little boats.  Which got me thinking of something nautical.  So I went searching for nautical themed flags and found dozens upon dozens of blue striped flags, ones with anchors, and ones with gold.

And I ended up with a nautical themed manicure.  Let's take a look!  I was inspired by kadnails for the look.




Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Rain Storm
  • OPI - Love, Angel, Music, Baby
  • Sally Hansen - Goldi-Flecks
  • Orly - French White
New to The Little Canvas collection are Twinkled T Nail Vinyls.  I used the stripe ones for my accent nail.  I need to get used to them...that's why my lines aren't perfectly straight.  Plus my bottle of Rain Storm (love this color) was a tad thick so nothing was really going well.  Once I get used to them, I'm sure I'll be able to get straight lines and not all weird uneven looking things like I did.



Overall, I like the manicure.  It's not my favorite...honestly I think nautical nails look better on other people.  Plus my nails were rather long this weekend when I did the manicure and I feel that made them weird too.

What do you think?  Fan of the look?
