Mermaid Nails

This is another mani from the vault that I never posted. I went through a lot of pictures and I ended up deleting quite a few manis due to the fact that they were pretty old and clean up wasn't that great, therefore I decided it was best to just delete them. One that made it to see the light of day is my first try at mermaid nails.

 I started out with 2 coats of Orly "Halley's Comet"

"Halley's Comet" went on smooth and was very opaque. I just love this polish. It really makes me think of a mermaid!

 I then used Sinful Colors "Nail Junkie" on the top 2/3rd's of the nail.

 "Nail Junkie" is a wonderful teal colored jelly polish packed with different size and shades of blue and gold glitters.

I wanted to add a little more gold to my nails so I added a very thin layer of Spoiled "Pirate's Booty" to the entire nail.

 To make this actually look like a mermaid, I stamped over the nails with a basic silver polish using Mash stamping plate #39.

I really like how this turned out... even though the stamping isn't perfect, but that is my fault, not the plate or polishes fault :)

In the end I am very happy with the end result, but I do plan on trying this one again.

What do you think? Have you tried doing mermaid nails?

Thanks so much for reading. Please keep an eye out for my up coming giveaway. I just want to share  some of my current favorite things. Have a great day!!!
