Columbus Day

Today is Columbus Day and I decided to do nail art based on his exploration.  This day celebrates Columbus' arrival in the Americas.

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue-Away, OPI Over the Taupe, Essense Color & Go Walk on Air, and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

I started with two coats of Blue-Away.  I love this color, that it only takes two coats, and that it dries quickly.

For my nail art, I decided to illustrate Columbus' three ships, The Nina, The Pinta, and The Santa Maria.  Columbus landed on San Salvador Island in The Bahamas in 1492.

There was a rhyme we sang in elementary school, "In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue".

Happy Columbus Day!
