Summer Fun Challenge - Fun In The Sun

Hello everyone! :)
Today I have my final post from the Summer Fun Challenge. I was going to post this yesterday but the nails I did were pretty rubbish. I felt really uninspired and couldn't really think of anything to do, so I put off posting it and then an idea hit me this morning! So when I think of summer, one of the first things that comes to mind for me is nautical themed things. So what better thing to put on my nails :P
 I decided to use typical red, white and blue colours for these nails. With the trademark nautical stripes and an anchor as an accent nail.
I used two coats of H&M Berry Love as the base on the red nails and three coats of China Glaze Ride The Waves on the blue nails. I wanted to use jelly polishes and do a simple jelly sandwich to go underneath the stripes. I layered one coat of Barielle Starry Sky over all nails. I then added one more coat of Ride The Waves over the blue nails and two coats of OPI Big Hair...Big Nails over the red nails. I used Barielle Platinum Ring to create the anchor and white acrylic paint for the stripes.
I'm so happy with how these turned out! I'm so glad I waited to post because these nails are so much better than yesterdays :P I love how the glitter looks buried underneath the jelly polishes, it gives the nail art some depth and it's so beautiful in real life! Unfortunatley we're still lacking any summer sun at all in England so these nails look a little bit out of place :P

Thanks for reading :)
