31DC2013 – Blue Nails

I do enjoy having blue nails, it always seems to be the colour that gets me the most compliments ! So I have several great blue polishes. Today I decided to use Kiko 386 – Soft Pastel Blue. Well, this polish isn’t soft or pastel, but by golly is it blue!

I was inspired by our recent trip to Normandy. A lot of tourist souvenir stalls sell marinières. These are the blue-and-white striped shirts that French Navy personnel wear. Since Normandy is a coastal region, I guess that’s where the connection is ;-)

I’ll try tape sometime too, but I love this arty look, and even though they aren’t perfect, I’m pretty pleased with how well they went! That said, I’m glad I didn’t try to do more than a couple of nails…
