Thoroughly Unfestive Tropical Fish Manicure!

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I have some thoroughly unfestive tropical fish nail art to share with you ๐Ÿ™‚

Tropical Fish

I recently replanted my fish tank with loads of plants! It looks really nice now and my fish look really happy (well as happy as fish can look)!

For this I started with a couple of coats of Lumin-iceant from Color Club, I really like this polish, it’s a blue toned silver foil polish and it’s opaque in one coat.

MM21 and MM09

I used two stamping plates from Messy Mansion, MM21 for the scales and MM09 for the fish, along with konad special polish in black.

For the leadlighting chose to use some tinted polishes that I mixed myself, you can find the post about them Here. I used my dark blue, purple and red ones.

Here’s a bonus (rather rubbish) photo of my fish tank.

Fish Tank!

In a couple of months when the plants have grown in a bit I think it’s going to look lovely!

Wanna Samba? With Messy Mansion MM09!

I have had a crazy few days! I have finally got an Allotment! Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€ but it’s really overgrown :s I think it’s going to take a huge amount of work to get it to the point where I can start growing stuff and I dread to think about what all that is going to do to my nails! o_O

For my nails today I started with three coats ofย  Wanna Samba? from Barielle Shades which is a lovely silvery duo-chrome, My photos seem to only show the silver/green tones, so you’ll have to take my word on the pink and purple ๐Ÿ™‚

The Black Is konad special polish and the stamping plate I used is Messy Mansion Plate MM09 I finished it off with a thick coat of Seche Vite.

I love how this looks a bit like wrapping paper! ๐Ÿ˜€

Holographic Glitter Fish Nail Stamping.

For this manicure I decided to use an image from a Messy Mansion stamping plate that I don’t usually use! I really love this plate, it is one of my favorite plates from my collection ๐Ÿ™‚

I started off with one coat of Style Slave fast finish polish from 17, followed by two coats of Starchild from Barielle Shades then a coat of Seche Vite to seal in the glitter. I used Konad special stamping polish for the image (and scorn from Illamasqua to cover the bits that I messed up) followed by yet another coat of Seche Vite.

I really like how this turned out the fish are so much more glittery than I can show in the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚
