China Glaze First Mate

Sunday, May 18, 2014


In a change of pace from last week's 80's themed nail art, I have some nautical sort of stuff for you guys this week :)

This design was inspired by Matchbook Nails' gorgeous design (it's my Cinderella hand, so I had to choose something simple!).

Polishes used:
China Glaze First Mate | studs from Claire's
 First Mate is an amazing polish. It gives full coverage in ONE coat, self-levels beautifully, and is a gorgeous navy color! 

The top photo shows it more purpley than it really is; I've edited the photo below to show its true color.

I love the simple feel of these. The only thing bothering me is that the studs are different shades of gold! 

Thanks for reading!
