I know it seems like I’ve been doing back-to-back mermaid nails recently and I won’t apologize for it (#mermaidallthethings). Today I have another set in non-traditional mermaid colors!
I began with three coats of Reverie Nail Lacquer Nightfall (one of my top fifteen most-used polishes in my collection) on everything but my ring fingers. There, I applied one coat of my holy grail black polish, Cirque Colors Memento Mori. I applied Out The Door top coat and waited for the accent nail to fully dry, then applied the scale vinyls from What’s Up Nails.
I painted a coat of Nightfall on top and then removed the vinyls before the polish dried and applying another coat of top coat to seal everything in. While the top coat was still tacky, I used a nail art wax pencil to apply a couple of cute silver shells.
Overall, I loved how these turned out and am fully prepared to mermaid all the things all summer long. So if you hate mermaids (what?), you should probably just unfollow now. And, you know…figure out where you went so wrong in life. Anyways, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
