Breton Nails with Nails Inc. Hanover Square NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 18 - 2012

I thought I might have outgrown my Breton phase by now but it shows no signs of abating. Growing up, my Mum always told me that big girls can’t wear horizontal stripes without looking somewhat like a barrel.  Or a lot like a barrel.  Either way, I didn’t dare wear them until last Summer – I’m so not over them.  I even have a Pinterest board dedication, I’m sure it has more than a little something to do with the inimitable Jean Seberg’s styling.

I need to employ some sticky tape to get straight lines!  Here’s my rather messy attempt at a Breton-inspired mani.  Do you like it?!  I used my new KIKO white nail polish (designed for french tips), over two coats of Nails Inc. Hanover Square.  It may be a little early in the year to get all nautical but it puts a smile on my face!

    Wow, I love this! I’ve been trying to think up a nice nautical inspired nail art to go with a dress and this seems perfect. Perhaps I’ll swatch the red heart of a teeny anchor. 🙂 x
