Guest Post : Marta from ChitChatNails rocks the boat with her amazing sailor mani

Girls, I am in total shock, in less than a week my blog will reach another million pageviews! I can't nearly thank you enough for being such awesome and faithful readers.
In celebration of this new milestone, I have decided to host a series of guest posts to share with you my favorite and amazingly talented fellow bloggers.

Today, let me introduce to you Marta from ChitChatNails. The minute I saw her post I completely fell in love with it!


When Sam contacted me to do a guest post for her I 'nonchalantly' replied "are you sure?"... just in case she contacted me by mistake ;)
I'm pleased to be here, honoured actually!!! Sam has some of the most breathtaking swatches and incredible Frankens I have ever seen and it is no wonder she has reached such a praiseworthy milestone: 2,000,000 pageviews (and counting)!  Sam, I have to say that it is dedicated bloggers like yourself that inspire me on a daily basis.  Thank you!
For those of you who do not know me yet ;) , I'm Marta and I have a little Canadian blog called ChitChat Nails.  Aside from having a passion for everything nail polish related I am also a mommy of three; nail painting and stamping (Oh how I love stamping) is my little personal oasis after a busy day with my children.
I am originally from Poland and I just recently returned from a visit back home.  I was born in Gdansk (and had the chance to visit the tri-cities: Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia which are all located on the Baltic coast).  I think it would be safe to say that today's manicure is, at least in part, inspired by the lovely sailboats and ships located in the marinas I visited ;)  I have also heard that orange/corals will be "in" this spring again, so I'm trying to summon spring with this look as well :D
 







To create this look I used two coats of OPI "Red Lights Ahead...Where?" which is a fantastic coral orange/red cream polish.  For the accent nail I used one of the Sephora Nail Strips (in black and white horizontal stripes).  I then stamped the lips (using plate BM03) first in white, and then with "Red Lights Ahead...Where?".  For a little bit of glitter (who doesn't like glitter right?) I used a striping polish in RedGlitter.  I applied one generous coat of Seche Vite over all of the nails to complete this look.
I hope you liked this look, and I would once again like to thank Sam for inviting me to Guest Post.  What an honour :D (phew... my polished hands are still shaking ;) )



Aren't you madly in love with this look? And that cap... It's just perfect!
Marta you're incredibly talented, thank you soooo much for sharing this amazing post with us ♥
