Manic(ure) Monday: Nautical

You guys know I often do manicures with polka dots or stripes but sometimes it may be hard for those who aren't into nail art that much to understand how I actually proceeded. A video would of course show that much better but I'm not really into making videos. However I found a nice Youtube tutorial from Essie which features stripes and polka dots and is in fact a nautical manicure, thus perfect for summer! From my outfit posts you know how much I love the colour combination of white and blue and for summer I like to add some pops of red, too. So I will probably give this manicure a try as soon ass my nails look better again (they're really dry and brittle at the moment which is why I wanted to give them a little nail polish break). If you like the following video make sure to check out Essie Germany's Youtube account where you will find many other tutorials (for example for this cute Gingham Chic manicure).

What do you guys think? Will you be giving this manicure a try or maybe just try the style of one nail? Feel free to share you nautical manicure or link to another blogger's great summer manicure!

  2. Thank you for sharing this video tutorial with us Carmen! She made everything look so effortless! I will definitely try to recreate a similar manicure myself! :)


  3. Super helpful video! I love painting my nails but never really go for designs on them but this video inspired me :)


  4. Super Inspiration. Ich liebe Essie Lacke und ein Nageldesign könnte ich mal wieder ausprobieren. Vielen Dank für den Tipp ;)

    Liebe Grüße Jessy von Kleidermädchen

  5. I like it.

  6. Love Essie polishes and love this post!



  7. so nice..i like it very much...

  8. I watched the video and found it amazing, but I am not that talented, even though it looks very easy to do... I guess I will go on wearing my boring transparent nail polish... although I like it too! I'll show your post to a friend who is crazy about new nail design, she will love it! I was absent because of a long trip and food poisoning on the first week - it means, last week - and now I'm back feeling fine! By the way, I'm now following you on facebook, have you seen it? You don't have to do the same, but if you like my page there I'll be so happy! Have a great week! denisesplanet.com
