Nautical Nails DIY - blue & white striped nails with 2nd Take - designer clothes and accessories

We always try to look our best here at 2nd Take. This means making ourselves all glammed up from head to toe. That’s why we love DIY tips for gorgeous nails! recently posted a “Do It Yourself Nautical Nails” piece, which we just have to share!


The seaside look never gets old. Blue and white, or white and red stripes is always a firm favourite in fashionable wardrobes. It’s a fun yet stylish trend, one that we don’t mind having all over us – especially on our nails.


Items you’ll need:

  • Navy blue & red nail polish
  • White sticker strips (you can get these from French Manicure sets or just make your own)
  • A top coat
  • Cuticle scissors
  • Toothpick
  • Nail drying spray


Use the navy blue polish to paint the base of your nails. Make sure you apply two applications.


Use the nail drying spray on each nail one-by-one.


Apply two white sticker strips onto each nail – try to keep the spacing between each sticker the same on each nail.


Clean the excess strips using the scissors – cut as close to your nails as possible. Make sure the strips stick firmly down.


Use the toothpick to dip into the red nail polish and draw a red heart on one or all of your nails.

2nd Take Tip: You could even try your hand at drawing a small anchor!


Use the nail drying spray again before applying the final top coat – this will protect your job well done!


Use this look for a special occasion because the stripes will wash away after a few showers.


2nd Take Tip: To get a stripy look, paint an additional colour onto the navy blue and strips. Once dry, peel away one or all of the strips.
