International Talk Like a Pirate Day Nail Art

Avast, me hearties, and feast yer eyes on me pirate nail arrrrrrrt!

As much as I would love to write an entire post in pirate speak, it would likely be a little difficult to read, not to mention writing on my end. As you may already know, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and it is probably my second favorite day after Halloween. It always is a good excuse to do pirate themed nail art as well, and I managed to do my nails this year for it! Check it out!
Polishes used:
Barielle: Coral Reef
Deborah Lippmann: Just Walk Away Renee
Ellagee: Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho!
Sweet Heart Polish: Inflame & Ignite
Zoya: Breezi
Zoya: Josie
Zoya: Raven
Zoya: Purity

Skull and crossbones charm from Born Pretty Store
Bundle Monster Stamping plates 506 and 509

Trying to get my thumb in for poses is always awkward for me, but it is currently painted in the gold polishes to match my middle finger. They are the limited edition Sweet Heart Polish and Ellagee Pirates of the Caribbean inspired duo that I review previously; the duo along with this awesome pirate coin keychain I'm holding are still available for purchase!

My stamping skills need a little more work (hurry home, new stamper!), but overall, I am loving this manicure! I really enjoy doing themed manicures, and I definitely need to do them more often!

Did you do any special nail art for Talk Like a Pirate Day? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, me hearties, have yerselves a wond-arrrrr-ful day!


  1. Oh my gosh! How did you do the tentacles? It looks amazing! Also, get into spirit with Jack Black's Blue Cream Soda:

    Cheers! :)


    1. The tentacles are part of the Bundle Monster stamping plate, so I just put polish into the etched out wells, picked it up with a stamping tool, and stamped it on my nails. I'm still trying to perfect my stamping technique and hope a different stamping tool will help. :)
