Dive Flag / SCUBA mani!

I can't believe I never thought of this before! I'm always looking for the perfect "ocean blue" polish, but I never thought of a SCUBA manicure before now. I absolutely love it! It is so simple yet spectacular.

I started out with Maybelline's new Color Show line with the beautiful blue crelly called Shocking Seas on 4/5 fingers. For my ring finger i used Wet n Wild Wild Shine French White Creme, and waited for it all to dry. I then used tape to make a small diagonal line down my ring finger and covered the whole nail with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Rapid Red (a bright red creme).

Oh, and here is what a dive flag looks like if you don't already know. :) It's bright red with a white diagonal stripe running from the upper left to the lower right corner. It is a sign for boaters that they must remain > 30 m from the flag at all times.

Here is Maybelline Shocking Seas on its own. It's a nice color and the formula was impressive. I used two coats that applied like butter and dried quickly. The brush on these is short and narrow (reminds me a bit of Essie brushes). They are a bit more $$ than what I normally spend on drug store polishes (gotta love $1 polish) but worth it for the formula. This is the first one I own and I'm sure to get more.

I think I originally bought this polish because their new bottles are so cute and aerodynamic. :) If you haven't seen them yet I'd suggest keeping your eyes open for the Color Show polishes. (Although these are 7 ml bottles and retail for about $5
