Mermaid nails

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Tuesday :)

Just another quick post - I've got a backlog of photos I'm working my way through whenever I find myself inspired to post. I think the next one will probably be a gradient round up... I've been obsessed with them lately.

After getting my paws on the Red Angel plates, I knew I had to do mermaid nails. There's a stamp that looks like scales (I know some people use the fishnet type designs but I'm weird and never did) so I decided to give it a go! Started with a base of Essie Blanc, then dabbed Essie In the Cabana, Boxer Shorts, Turquoise & Caicos... bit of Illamasqua Jo'Mina too... but it ended up being mainly the blues that were visible. Then I added Fingerpaints Twisted and Flecked. After that dried, I stamped over it using RA111 and Color Club Halo-graphic. So many layers omg. All of my manicures lately seem to involve an excessive amount of layers haha.

What do you guys think? Have you been doing any stamping lately? I love stamping with holos, it always looks good and in the sun it's so gorgeous!

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

    These are GORGEOUS! I love them so much <3

  6. Gorgeous!! I just used Color Club Fashion Addict in my most recent post for some stamping over Pucci-Licious. It's bad news when I'm driving and my nails catch the sunlight. I can't stop staring!
