Today I have my second themed nail art design for September Nail Art Ideas Linkup: Sapphire!  Don’t forget this is a fun challenge that you can join any time.

Inspired by the deep blue of sapphire, I chose to do use two new colors from the essie fall collection (swatches coming soon): style cartel and take it outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I first polished my nails with essie take it outside and then once dry, I applied nail art tape in various patterns and used style cartel, a gorgeous sapphire blue, to create the overall design. I topped the manicure off with HK Girl topcoat.
