Naughty Nautical

I was going through my polishes the other day when I ran across my bottle of Essie's Naughty Nautical and fell in love with the colour all over again. I've had the polish since last summer but I've hardly used it because of it's slight shimmer. Now don't get me wrong - I love shimmer - but I can never seem to work it into a design. With that in mind I was determined to create a design just for this super pretty, shimmery colour.

Given the name I obviously had to do something nautical with it so this is what I came up with. 

As has been the case with my last few designs, this wasn't the original plan I had in mind when starting the design, but it definitely looks much better than the other things I tried!
I wanted to do something cute and simple and I think I accomplished that!

Also, here's a macro shot just because:
