Hello Sailor Nail Art Tutorial

"Hello Sailor" by Eline, Posh! Nail Spa

As the year comes closer to its tail end, the colder days are starting to hit home. But don't let the gloomy weather knock you down; bring back the sunshine and warmth into your look with this super cute sailor inspired nail look! These adorable nautical nail decals are from Half Moon Eyes, and they're just as easy on the eyes as they're easy to use. Althea collaborated with Posh! Nail Spa and came up with this tutorial on how you can achieve this salon-ready look, right at home.

How-To Steps:
  1. Make sure your nail is free from any oil or dirt, then apply a layer of base coat. Follow up with 2 layers of base polish of your choice, and allow to dry between layers.
  2. Cut out the design you'd like to use and dip it into some water for about 10 seconds. With a gentle touch, slide the decal off the paper backing and carefully apply it to the spot of your choice with a pair of tweezers. Gently press it down onto the nail and let air dry or dry off lightly with a paper towel.
  3. You can choose to stop here, or add more stickers and accessories to your nail look. In the example above, we've added some striping tape to the ends to give it an extra special touch.
  4. Once you are happy with the design you've created, apply a top coat to smooth out and seal in your artwork, keeping it lasting as long as it can. Allow to dry, and you are done!

How simple was that? We love how these nails turned out, and it's definitely perked up our week! These decals come in a variety of different designs too, so make sure you check them out here. Would you try these out? We'd love to see your creations with your favorite decals, so make sure you tag #AltheaKorea on Instagram to show us!


  1. I like your nails so badly. They are so long and strong at the same time. I want to do the same design as you but I have short nails.
