Protect your nails from staining (especially because we are using a dark colored based polish in this look) and provide a smoother base for application.

Apply a blue polish.

Apply a blue polish. A nice royal blue or navy blue is the epitome of a nautical look. This blue is Essie’s Butler Please.

Draw two lines in the corner of your nail.

Draw two diagonal lines in the corner of the nail. Stripes are essential with nautical looks. We are using a thin nail brush, but you can also use a toothpick or thin makeup brush. We are using OPI’s Alpine Snow.

Draw a heart in the other corner of your nail.

Draw a red heart to show your love for this nautical nails trend! Using a dotting tool (or bobby pin or end of a pencil), place the dotting tool on the nail, and drag down slightly. Do this for the other side of the heart as well, and connect the two sides together.

Apply a top coat.
