Hey Everyone! 🙂
I have finally caught up with the 52 Week Pick and Mix Challenge! Yay! 😀
This week the prompt is Mermaid and the colours are Lilac and Green.
For my Mermaid nails I used
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
- Sally Hansen – Moonstone (Lustre Shine)
- China Glaze – Make A Spectacle
- Sally Hansen – Orchid Express (Insta-Dry)
- Maybelline – Flash Cosmic
- Sally Hansen – Blue Streak (Insta-Dry)
- Messy Mansion – MM21
- Konad Special Polish Black
- Seche Vite
I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.
Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.
When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.
Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.
I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. 😀
For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.
Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.
