Nail art of the week: Nautical nails

I was feeling inspired last week when it came to my nails and I had quite a bit of spare time on my hands so I went back to the drawing board with my nail art pens.

Looking through the WAH Nail Instagram page for ideas I came across Margot Robbie’s nautical nails that she had done for her holidays.

I chose the base colours as close to their design as possible, red, white and instead of black I went for a dark blue and a light blue. My favourite nail was the anchor detail with white stripes, super simple and effective. The blue and white striped nails actually have different backgrounds and definitely could have been neater!

I added a cute wheel from other nautical nail art I’d spotted and a gold accent for the ring finger just for a little pizzazz. I really loved the colours together and would definitely just wear them together without any nail art!
