Rimmel Navy Seal with cream stripes
I posted on Twitter the other day about being lacking in nailspiration. I seemed not to be able to think beyond stripes, chevrons and zig zags. Several kind people prompted me with some ideas, but I’ve come back to stripes. Again. I do love them.
I got it into my head that cream stripes over blue would be nice, and picked out this lovely shade of blue from Rimmel, called Navy Seal. It’s what I would describe as an “airforce blue”, but I suppose the Navy is still one of the armed forces, so fairly close! It was a little runny and pooled at the cuticles on some nails, but otherwise went on well, with two coats needed.
The striped nails were previously prepared with a base of two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, plus some Nail Vinyls strips. I was going to stripe the whole nail, but changed my mind and limited it to three stripes each. I think it looks rather cool like this.
- Blue nails: two coats of Rimmel Navy Seal
- Striped nails: one coat of Rimmel Navy Seal over Nail Vinyls and a base of two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff
- Top coat: Glisten & Glow HK Girl
