|Macro of Rainbow Honey Laguna Grande|
|Macro of the mermaid scales|
I started off with a base of Rainbow Honey Laguna Grande which I got with my May Mystery Bag. I put it on all of my nails. This was my first time using Laguna Grande and I adore it! I actually didn't care for the other two that I got in that bag so I canceled my subscription after the first month that I got it. Now I have regrets!
Anyway, once that was dry, I started in with some loose glitter from KBShimmer that I got as a freebie when I placed my order back in the spring. Its a mix called Spring Celebration and has a mix of gold, blue, and magenta holographic circle glitters. So I used a clear polish and did my nail in about 3 sections - first placing clear polish and then placing the glitters individually with a dotting tool. I made sure that they all overlapped some so that they looked like scales. I did the same thing on my pinkie. Once the glitters had set, I went over the glitter nails with Shinespark Polish Max Splash which is a bright blue jelly and that transferred the gold glitter into a goldish-green color VERY reminiscent of a mermaid's tail. I loved how it matched the green flakes in Laguna Grande! Once everything was dry, I added Seche Vite to all of my nails and placed the sea shell charms on my index and middle fingers.
What do you think of this mani? Do you like mermaid scale manis?
