Nail Art: Mermaid Nails

Wednesday, 11 September 2013
Hello everyone. Today's post is just a quick little one to show you some nail art I done recently. I've really been lusting after some of the mermaid leggings from Black Milk. At the moment I can't justify spending about £45 on leggings plus shipping from Australia so I channelled my mermaidy cravings into some nail art. I used to do nail art all the time and was really into it. But since getting a job/ taking on more work academically I've just not had the time. It was nice to sit down and get creative for once. It's not great but I quite like it. My Model's Own nail art pen has kind of seized up and I had to use the brush end of it so it wasn't as precise. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I started off by applying a base coat of OPI Nail Envy and then two coats of Totally Teal from No7. Then using a black nail art pen from Model's Own I created a row of scalloped scales at my cuticles. I added layer by layer until the scaley effect was complete. I love mermaid stories and keep tropical fish so these nails were pretty spot on for me. 

Did you like this post? Would you like to see me attempt more nail art?
