Below Deck Inspired Nail Art - Using Girly Bits Lost in the PATH and BM-XL25 Swatches

Below Deck is my guilty pleasure.  The regular one with Kate and Captain Lee and not the summer Med one (although I will watch that if I am bored too).  Since I gave up the Real Housewives of New Jersey, I need a little trashy TV in my life and this is what I picked to fill the void.  Since Below Deck returned to screens this week, I needed some nautical nails to celebrate it.

Another polish from Indie Expo Canada! The lovely Leah Ann gifted me a bottle of Colors by Llarowe Oh Canada.  This was their VIP shade but she had a few bottles left over and I am so glad I got one.  I usually stay away from reds but this gorgeous bottle of bright red holo is perfect for Canada Day.
