Nail Art | Nautical Mani Swap with @EgyptianMani

No comments
Originals to the left, recreates to the right.

I’m so incredibly pleased to share this month’s mani swap with you! I had the honor of swapping with @egyptianmani and had a super easy time narrowing down just what look I wanted to recreate! It just doesn’t get any cuter than this happy little octopus especially as summer winds down, you should totally head over to EgyptianMani’s page and check out the original as well as her recreate of my anchored dotted nautical nails!

These were actually pretty simple to do and so much fun! I started with a base of China Glaze’s What I Like About Blue before using a dotting tool and Tux Polish‘s Onyx (releasing September 23rd!) I made the rounded tentacle shape and octopus outline. Once that was nice and opaque I used the dotting tool and Pure to add suction cups to the tentacles and the whites of the eyes for the octopus. I then used a smaller dotting tool and added some black pupils and white shine detail to the eyes and dotted down my index nail. Then I topped everything off with glossy topcoat and this is the final result:

So that wraps up this month’s mani swap, be sure to head over and give egyptianmani love from me and thanks so much for reading along!
