The Nail Files: Shimmering Sailor

Wohoo! It's time for The Nail Files!


Well Shut the Front Door

**Link up with us to show off your cute manis (either done by yourself or in a salon), nail polish purchases and/or recommendations, nail polish tips--whatever nail-related thing you'd like! And please use the button or link back to this blog. Thanks!**


I'm going to be honest, I have no idea where the inspiration for this week's mani came from. Haha! I knew I wanted to use Man Hunt because it's such a pretty blue, and I knew I'd need some sparkle, hence Dorothy Who?, and the rest just kind of happened.

Here's what I used:
For some reason, Man Hunt photographed WAY lighter than it is in real life. You've been warned. 

And the mani:

I love the overall look and it was nice to make use of my longer nails (that have just recently come back, yay!). The anchor is a sticker from the same kit my chevron stickers came from and it only took two coats of top coat to cover the ridges. 

What did you do this week? Link up and show off! :)


  1. Jennie, I love this mani! The blues are really gorgeous! xo

  2. I'm obsessed with anchors and anything that has to do with the ocean for that matter. Well except boats, I just don't care. Anyways, I love your nails :) I've come to the conclusion that I can't do nail designs because my nails are too short, not allowing any room ;).

  3. Love this!! The colors and design is excellent. I tried so hard not to jump on the anchor train, but after my newfound obsession with pirates, it was inevitable that I finally give in and join the anchor fad. haha I love it! :)

  4. So cute! I have a mani post drafted in my blog dashboard from last MONTH that I need to hurry up and post so I can link up already! :-) My nails are back to nubs. *profound sadness*

  5. I like it. I like it a lot. :D

  6. Whaaaat, the color in the bottle looks totally different than the color on your nails! That's wild. Love the little anchor - I'm going to use mine soon too to recreate a nail version of an awesome outfit I saw on someone's fashion blog!


  7. Very cute! I tried to do nautical nails once... your anchor turned out much better than mine!

  8. Haha, I'm glad I got you in a singing mood! I had to- it's cheesy- but with that being the name of the nail polish- I just couldn't pass up that opportunity! Haha! Thanks love the blue by the way! Have you found your perfect creme/taupe yet? I just saw another one by NYC and totally thought of you!


  9. Wow such a gorgeous navy mani! I love it.

  10. I'm LOVING the anchor and shades of blue! Too pretty.

  11. I love blue and white together, so classic and crisp!

  12. Oh I LIKE it! I wish my nails were long enough to do that kind of edging work. I'm amazed you got a steady, straight line with the white. Well done!

  13. Oh I LOVE anything nautical. That navy blue is divine! Your lines are perfect!!
    I'm no good at French tips since I don't have square nails.

  14. I love the French Tips... and that anchor was so cute!

  15. Jennie,

    I absolutely love your nails! Too colors and designs too!
    I always look forward to your nail link ups:) Enjoy your evening!

  16. LOVE! Can't go wrong with Navy, Sparkles & Nautical! xo

  17. OMG when I first saw the anchor I totally thought you did that freehand - and I wasn't surprised in the slightest!

    Then I read that it's a sticker. Which is fine. But just saying - your mad skills don't even shock me anymore haha :)

    That's supposed to all be a compliment. It's been a long day so apologies if it sounds not that way...


Whattaya got to say about that? *waits*
