Loves Me, Loves Me Knot

Nautical Valentine's Day Nail Art

Back to cute looks, but still different.  I chose the design based on the +Bundle Monster stamp which has a bunch of hearts made out of knots.  It has a nautical feel, so I added an anchor and a pink and blue color scheme.

Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • Revlon - Bubbly
  • Ulta - Moody Blues
  • Wet n Wild Fergie - Flossy Flossy
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-406 (love knots)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Nail art brush
  • 4mm round pink stud
  • Nail striping tape

The heart knots could also be a Celtic design for St. Patt'y Day if you use green :)  I like plate designs that are multifunctional.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors - thumb and pinky in Moody Blues, the rest in Bubbly.

  2. Stamp the heart knots (BM-406) in blue on the ring finger.

  3. Use a nail art brush to paint an anchor on the middle finger.  Start with the heart at the top, then draw a vertical line.  Next, paint the "U" (base of the anchor) and the arrows/pointed ends.  Finally, add the short horizontal line under the heart.

  4. Apply vertical striping tape across the entire index finger, paint over with blue polish, then immediately remove the tape.

  5. Add a couple coats of Flossy Flossy to the pinky to add some glitter.

  6. Add a pink stud to the base of the thumb.
