A Whale Of A Trio

*Purchased by Me*

Today I have some adorable triplet nails with my main beeches Amber of NailsLikeLace and Mai of Mai Painted Nails!

I kind of suck, you guys. We actually posted this collaboration a week ago. I've been struggling to find the time and effort needed to keep up with this blog lately, so this comes super late, and I'm sorry for that.

In the meantime, let's get to the nails!

We settled on this adorable nautical pattern Amber found on a truly creepy doll. (Seriously, you're welcome for the nightmares.) I love that, as usual, we each managed to come up with something different from the same pattern. Be sure to check out my ladies for their interpretations!

Here are my nails on their own:

I started with a base of Sinful Colors' Enchanted, then used chevron nail vinyls and China Glaze's What a Pansy to add the stripes. I then sponged on one coat of Enchanted over the whole thing to soften the look a bit. The whales, anchor and speech bubble were done with acrylic paint and my favorite Winstonia brush.

I loved this pattern and the look I came up with, if not the creepy ass doll that inspired it. (Seriously. Shudders.) Thoughts?
