Mermaid Mani

Hi all, Happy May Day! Hope those of you living in the UK are enjoying the long weekend. As for me, I plan to do absolutely nothing and enjoy it. Today I have a little bit of nail art for you! 

I had been wearing a mani of Pillow Talk from Rimmel's new Rita Ora collection (review to follow shortly) when Emma from NailsXO gave me the inspiration to try out Mermaid scales nail art. She posted a really simple nail art tutorial which I just had to try (see HERE). Mine is maybe not the neatest but still pretty effective I think, especially for a first time! 

I used No 17 Holo polish to draw little crescent moon shapes with a dotting tool until I covered the entire nail. The glitter is Mermaid from Barry M's new Aquarium collection, one coat gives the coverage seen below with big green, blue and gold flakes. I thought there was a pretty decent amount of glitter coverage in that one coat and the colours are lovely. Also pretty convenient that I had a polish called Mermaid when doing Mermaid scales nail art! 

Hope you like it, and swing by Nailsxo for a nosy at her nail art - it's really something!

  1. I just commented and it decided to disappear :( so apologies if you read this twice! I absolutely love your mani, I think the pale and blue colours work so well for mermaid nail art, I think it's because it reminds me of the ocean :D! I will add you to my blog as soon I can, probably be up at the end of this week, either way I will let you know :) xx p.s. I'm glad I inspired you :)
