It's back to 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge! I'm a day late in posting but did have my nails done for Friday; hopefully, I won't be late next week! This weeks theme was pale blue base; I had the added prompt of mermaid/scales. Here's what I came up with!
Started with a base of Polish II Sky Blue; two coats on middle, ring and pinky and three on the remainder. Two coats wasn't the best but I knew I would be adding a glitter top coat.
Added a coat of Shimmer Polish Sarah on the fingers that only had two coats and top coated with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC before stamping.
Stamped mermaid scales using MdU 3 using an image from Bundle Monster BM-502.

Added a coat of top coat.
Made a stamper decal using an image from Marianne Nails n.89 using MoYou Ever Green, Funky Fingers Dark Knight, then filling in with acrylic paints.

Placed the stamper decal on index and middle.
Added seashells from Infinity 11 to middle using CND Sweet. Started the mermaid tail by filling in with MdU 11 using a brush.
Once I was somewhat happy with the shape of the tail, filled it in a little bit more. Added some more hair to the mermaid using MoYou Ever Green on middle finger.
Did a water scene on thumb to accent using images from Infinity 11. Stamping polishes are MdU 11, 15, 39 and 59.
Added fish to the thumb using MdU 3 using an image from Bundle Monster BM-501. Added some sand using Zoya Godiva.

Decided I wanted a fish school so triple stamped (or more, can't remember now).
Added a coat of 10.1 Polish Blueberry Blues to thumb for water look. Top coated it all with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC to finish.
This pix I think is one of the better ones that it flows well. Its not perfect by any means but overall, I was apy how this turned out!
Here's the other ladies manis over a pale blue base with their various prompts!
