NOTD Feeling Nautical

Nail Art tools- Ebay 
Ciate Cupcake Queen, magic Carpet, Power Dressing
Models Own Snow White 
I cannot deny it, my biggest weakness has to be nail polish, nothing beats browsing a makeup stand and admiring all the fabulous shades on offer, or the feeling of buying a brand new polish, having to road test the shade immediately (I have issues ha). This weakness has no signs of disappearing any time soon and the love affair is only fueled further due to having best friends that share this ever growing obsession. So its hardly surprising that one of my Christmas presents from one of my fellow nail addicts was well, nail related. Iv'e been eyeing up nail art tools for quite some time, yet never got around to purchasing them. Unwrapping the rather lovely purple tools, I couldn't help but plan nail related ideas in my head. Being the novice that I am, I opted for..uh well stripes, and in all honesty I ended up using the nail art pen more so than the tools (tut tut). 

I was rather unoriginal with my design, and based it upon this NOTD from the Beauty Department. For the base coat I used Ciate's Power Dressing, and opted for Ciate's Cupcake queen on my ring finger (ah such a blogging cliche). I then used models Own's Snow white to create the stripes aswell as Models Own's White Nail art pen. Finally I used Cupcake Queen and Magic Carpet along with one of the pens to create little hearts. 
Il be the first to say that its definitely not perfect, but for a first attempt Im quite pleased!!
