So here’s the design that I created with the three polishes from my ‘A Mermaid’s Life‘ set, displaying how well they work together. Isn’t it just beautiful! I found them so pretty that they became a serious driving hazard. I used ‘A Mermaid’s Tale’ as the base, then coated them in ‘A Mermaid’s Tears’, finally painting them with ‘A Mermaid’s Dream’ in an ombre style. The pearls and sea-life studs are from BornPrettyStore.
It’s got such a beautiful depth to it, and is super shiny in reality. I’ve actually been wearing them since Wednesday because I can’t bear to take them off. They are also surprisingly chip free, considering I’ve cleaned out my four guineapigs, water changed my 6 fish tanks and been in the pool teaching.
Below shows my layering of the polishes before the additions. It’s a weird one because in the photos the base (A Mermaid’s Tale) looks a lot more blue than it is, it definitely has green and gold tones.
So glitter is just amazing! There was so many glittery things that I could have put on my nails – sequins, loose glitter, glitter polish, charms BUT I went for a loose glitter ombre. Even though it was pink (I’m not really one of those ‘pink girls’) I really liked having it on, I was so reluctant to take it off, insert sad face.
(I could not get a good picture however, so please excuse an out of focus pinky and super cropped photo.)
I was experimenting with my glitters again, I don’t know if I personally like this combination. Too garish? Quite fresh, more of a Summer look I’d say.
I really need to get a set of glitters though as I only have a few colours. (I know what some of my next wage is getting spent on!…)
This was my first attempt at trying to use glitter in a gradient! It turned out okay. I added a little gem, just because I can’t seem to leave anything too plain. They are honestly so glossy and glittery; I heaped top coat onto them seeing as the glitter absorbs it so much and also to make them smooth to the touch. (It’s a shame the photo doesn’t convey it well.)
P.s My index finger as it is disgustingly short. As you can see I managed to pull it into the quick when I broke it. Yuck!
