Insider Beauty Blog: All hands on deck
How to nail the nautical trend this Spring with the perfect at-home mani.
Without fail, every year we see a nod to the seagoing style with classic hues of red, white and blue.
After all the effort of doing it DIY, you want something that won't chip after tying your shoe-laces, never mind a nautical knot!
INSIDER are loving CND's revolutionary new weekly polish system, Vinylux.
With only two steps (base coat is eliminated), no need to cure under a UV light like the longer lasting 2-3 week manicures and easy removal, it's a winner in our book.
Vinylux is quick drying and comes off in the same way as regular polish (with an acetone-based remover), so saves time and money visiting the salon.
If you're feeling creative, use a toothpick to create polka dots and a nail art pen or brush for stripes. Try Inglot Nail Art Enamel, €10
To lock in your design for week-long results, use CND Vinylux Polishes, €11.95 with Weekly Top Coat, also €11.95 (or €17.95 if purchased together). www.lovecnd.com for stockists
If you want to keep it old school, some of our favourites for recreating the maritime trend at home are:
