I recently wanted to wear some mermaid-inspired designs (what else is new, right?) but didn’t want to go with traditional mermaid-esque shades. I turned to some nice creamy shades from Cirque Colors and a bit of sparkle from KBShimmer!
I began with a base of two coats of Cirque Colors Vigo on everything but my pinkie nail, which I painted one coat of Cirque Colors Memento Mori. I then painted a coat of KBShimmer Dust In The Bottle over everything but my index finger. Once dry, I applied a Scale/Mermaid stencil from What’s Up Nails (purchased by me) onto my nail and painted a coat of Memento Mori over top and removed the vinyl. Finally, I placed a silver shell stud onto my nail and finished everything off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. I also uploaded a video tutorial for this look on youtube.
Overall, I really liked how bold and fun these turned out! What do you think of this mani? Let me know in the comments!
