31 Day Nail Challenge, Day 12 - Stripes

I did this manicure to match a dress which I'll be wearing tomorrow morning - a nautical 50s style dress. So today's nail art features stripes and anchors. Ahoy!

I painted my nails with Ulta3's Blue Marlin, except for the ring fingers, which I painted with Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Whirlwind White. I used the same polishes to stamp the blue and white with, and Rimmel's Rapid Ruby for the red anchors. Stamping was okay but not great. Happily my mundo de unas stamping polishes shipped today so fingers crossed they get here soon!

This is the first time I've done multicoloured stamping and I am pleased at the effect. I'll definitely have to try out some more multicolour stamping in the future.

And here's a picture of the dress, which I handily got from the internet - check out the white anchor on the pocket:
