I started off this design by painting my pinkie, index, and thumb nail with Essie's Boom Boom Room. A gorgeous pink creme polish.
For my middle finger I painted one coat of Golden- I by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, and topped it off with Color Club's Take The Stage. I love this gold glitter polish because it also has holographic flakes scattered through it!
For my ring finger I first painted it with a few coats of White on White by China Glaze. Once that dried completely, I used thin striping tape and carefully placed pieces on my nail to create stripes. (This was so hard to do! I don't understand why striping tape is so confusing.) Next, I painted over that with Essie's Mint Candy Apple and then immediately peeled off the tape to reveal (somewhat) perfect stripes.
Finally, to create the anchor I just used a small brush and slowly painted it on my ring finger with Boom Boom Room. If you have trouble with this, just remember to take your time and be patient!
I really hope you all love these just as much as I do! I'm glad that I'm finally getting back into nail art, it feels like I haven't done my nails in forever.
