Mermaid Maiden

Mermaid Nail Art

Mermaids!  This is another look using the +Bundle Monster Sun Kissed Collection.  I decided to do a red mermaid theme as opposed to the standard blue.  The inspiration for this twist came from Sally Hansen's Changing Tides polish.  The sheer red polish with red, blue, and silver glitter, reminded me of the shimmering scales of a mermaid tail.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wild and Crazy - Wild Vision
  • Sally Hansen - Changing Tides
  • Bundle Monster - Iced Silver
Other Supplies:

While this may look difficult, it is actually pretty easy - just some simple stamping and jewel and stud placement.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors.  Paint the middle finger silver, and the rest a dark red.

  2. Add two coats of Changing Tides to the ring finger.

  3. Using Iced Silver, stamp the scales (BM-502) onto the ring finger, and the mermaid (BM-510) on the index.

  4. Apply three silver shells studs in a vertical line down the pinky nail.
  5. Cover the middle finger with rhinestones.  Start with a line of four 4mm rhinestones down the center.  Add three 3mm rhinestones to each side, and fill in the rest of open space with 2mm rhinestones.
