Fish scale layering

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Thursday! I apologise for my silence again. I wanted to post on Monday or Tuesday but Wednesday was the first time I would've been able to schedule a post... and I chose to keep my blog silent as part of the SOPA/PIPA protest. I may not be American but everyone would be impacted by those measures... hopefully the protest did the trick and showed that the internet community as a whole stands united against censorship and minority rules. Anyway!

Today I have a mani that was very hard to capture. Sometimes I layer glitters or flakies over a mani to get another day of wear out of it. Other times I go a bit nuts with the layering. This is one of those times. I started out with two coats of Jesse's Girl Mermaid's Lagoon (a lovely teal with coppery shimmer), which came to me from my love Jen (it is so pretty omfg thank youuuu <3). I wore that on its own for a day, then decided to try some layering. I started out with a coat of Color Club Sexy Siren, then added Essie Shine of the Times, then topped it off with FingerPaints Twisted. Yeah. It was a lot. The result looked like fish scales!




Oooh the macro shot is so cool haha. I love how sometimes my camera sees textures I didn't! Also, I apologize for my changed watermark. I haven't gotten my Harry Potter font back onto my new laptop so I decided to just use the same font I use as a default font on my blog haha!

What do you lovelies think? Have you done any fun layerings lately? :)

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
