Hello everyone!! I hope everyone is doing great! Today is my Ariel inspired mani. I do most of my mani's in advance. I just got some wonderful nail mail and I had to put the colors to use. I ordered four of the China Glaze Sunsational polishes because I could not find the ones I wanted anywhere. I stalked Sally's for ever and they still do not have them. Oh well I have the ones I wanted now. I still kind of want the pink one (You Drive Me Coconuts) but not a necessity. I felt I needed That's Shore Bright, Highlight of My Summer, Sun of a Peach and Too Yatch to Handle. I love every single color in person!! I have been wanting to try the mermaid mani! I also had to use one of my new polishes. Here is what I came up with...
Base color-China Glaze That's Shore Bright
Gradient color-Barielle Wanna Samba?
Flaky polish-Color Club Snow-Flakes
Stamping polish-Petites Sand Dune
Stamping plate-Mash 39
Top coat-Seche Vite
I am please with how this mani came out. The only thing I would change is to use a green base color instead of the purple. I just wanted to match the colorfulness in the picture below. I was a bit unimpressed by the Color Club polish. I wanted it to give off bigger flakes in order to give a scaly effect. Well it failed. Still pretty but no where near what I wanted. Oh well. This Barielle is my first ones. I bought a pack at Marshall's and I love it! I can't wait to use it as a base color. All of the polishes that came in the pack are duochromed. They are beautiful.
Have you tried a mermaid mani?? What colors look best with it to you?? Thanks so much for stopping by!
