Blue nail look - using Sportsgirl and Face of Australia polishes

September 24, 2012


I am loving Sportsgirls Nail It! nail polish in Denim, it is the perfect navy blue that almost looks like blue ink. I bought this on sale for $5.95 a few months ago, and it has been the best cold weather colour. I decided to do a quick look with it before the weather starts to get too warm.


So I used two coats of Demin over a base coat. This colour has no white pigment to it, so it is a little sheer, so you do need 2-3 coats to get a full cover. Wait for the nail polish to dry completely before you start doing the design.


Then I used some sticky tape (for an example see my last nail post here) and sectioned of some of the nail in a diagonal direction. I then painted the exposed part of the nail with Face of Australia's nail polish in Ocean Villa - for this part, you want an opaque nail colour so you only have to put one coat on. I then carefully peeled of the sticky tape, you need to do this before the nail polish has dried



I did this effect to my thumb nail and ring finger nail, but you can do it to any nails you want... I might even do every nail next time.

I would highly recommend the shade Denim, it's such a unique navy blue. If you are interested in picking up this colour, you can possibly still get in on sale at Sportsgirl! I bought the Face of Australia nail polish close to two years ago, so I'm unsure if you can still buy that shade. 

What do you think of navy blue nails?
