Ahoy, me hearties!
Today be International Talk Like A Pirate Day, and it be time to batten down t' hatches, ye scurvy dogs, for some more pirate themed nail art. Savvy? Today I be takin' t' "freestyle" prompt seriously, and had some fun t' create this look. Arrrrr ye ready?
I really wanted t' get a classic ragged red/white striped pirate clothin' look, so on me thumb, index, and middle fin'ers, I cut a jagged pattern into some maskin' tape and applied it t' t' ends o' me nails, then painted a coat o' Sally Hansen White On over t' top. Then I came in with OPI First Date at the Golden Gate and me stripin' brush t' add t' red stripes, then removed t' tape. I finished those nails by outlinin' t' frayed ends in Sally Hansen Black Out with a detail brush.
On me rin' fin'er, I started with two coats o' White On, and then stamped t' Jolly Roger flag from VL023 (it's a negative space image, so I needed t' white t' show through underneath) towards t' free edge in Konad Black. I didn't like t' black flag hangin' out on t' white base, so I used a detail brush t' cover t' white with more Black Out.
Finally on me pinky nail, I used two coats o' First Date at the Golden Gate, and stamped t' cute mermaid image in Konad White, also from VL023. She unintentionally looks like she may be workin' a pole because o' t' reflection in that last picture, but in reality I always thought if I had a pirate ship, I would name her t' White Siren, and this nail represents somethin' similar t' how I always pictured her flag.
This be the last o' th' week's pirate-themed nail arts, so all ye landlubbers best take ye chances to check out all the terrific nail art by clickin' the inlinkz below!
Have yerselves a great Friday, me mateys, and I be seein' yas soon!
