Some of you might recall the anchor nails I did a while back:
Evidently this picture turned out to be one of my most stolen pictures. I constantly find it on fashion Instagram pages and such. Anyway I was asked to make a tutorial for the anchor so that's what I have for you today.
Paint your base color. For this tutorial I used China Glaze That's Shore Bright.
In my original design I used Essie First Timer.
Start your anchor by painting a small circle. This will the the top of your anchor.
Make a thin line straight down from the circle.
Paint the sides of the anchor, make sure the bottom is relatively pointy.
Paint points on the end of the sides of the anchor.
Paint a short line, crossing the anchor around the middle.
Step Seven (kind of):
To complete the look add nails with polka dots and stripes. Glitter too! I used Essie Beyond Cozy in the original design.
Hope you like this. Let me know if you try, I'd love to see!
Picture to sum it all up:
