Mermaid Nails

It feels like ages since I last pulled out my mermaid stencils for some mermaid nails. The other night I was playing with some new flakies from NailStuff.ca & after looking at them on my nails, I couldn’t help but think they would make an amazing base for a mermaid nail design! I’ve had this mermaid tail idea floating around a while, so I grabbed some more vinyls from What’s Up Nails (I believe it’s suppose to be a whale tail) & have it a go.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • FingerPaints Fun Peel Off Base Coat (to apply flakies)
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ocean Daze
  • NailStuff.ca Flakies — these guys aren’t currently available but there is a huge selection here!
  • What’s Up Nails Scale Stencils
  • What’s Up Nails Whale & Tale Stencils
  • Color Club Eternal Beauty
  • Layla Cosmetics Mermaid Spell
  • Color Club Crystal Baller
  • Wrenn Polish Mesmerizing
  • Wrenn Polish Summer Sands
  • NailStuff.ca Summer Nail Wheel — Silver seahorse stud

This design didn’t quite turn out how I pictured on my head, but that’s mostly the tail look on my ring finger. I really wish it was bigger. I do however love the holo scales over the flakie base just makes me so happy! I also wish I had done that look on the majority of my fingers with just the stud being my accent! (& if I had more of these nail vinyls left, I probably would have… going to need to buy some more ASAP!)

Also holo & flakies have to be the most beautiful combination. Definitely trying out these flakies OVER holo next!
