I totally stole this look from Wondrously Polished. It's been on my Pinterest's "nail art inspiration" board since I first laid eyes on it It's beautiful. (Check out her design because she added a starfish and a seahorse too!) This took me much longer than I'm used to because I've been slacking on freehand nail art. Out of practice, so I made more mistakes and was slower.
I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Iced Coffee, let that dry, then used striping tape to mask off and make the white stripes. I used a random white striper nail polish. Then I used Born Pretty's image plate QA5 for the anchor. Barielle Berry Blue was that polish. Then I freehanded the octopus with Alessandro Red Carpet and more of the random white striper.
For my right hand I wanted to do a simpler design, so I left off the freehanded octopus and just stamped the anchor twice. Once on my ring finger, then again on my thumb.
I'm really happy with how it turned out and am inspired to try and do more nail art again. :)
