Shimmery Sea Scales

Holo Mermaid Nail Art

I just got these Magical Creatures nail charms from +Bundle Monster, so I had to try them out!  There are mermaids, unicorns, masks, and diamonds.  I went with the mermaid so I could use the blue holo polish I just got too.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Bundle Monster Holographic Micro Glitter - Blue Me Away
  • Rimmel 60 Seconds Extreme - Mania
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Angelic White
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-502 (scales)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Iridescent rhinestones (various sizes)
  • Gold studs
  • Gold caviar beads
  • Bundle Monster mermaid charm
  • Krazy Glue
  • Makeup sponge

I wanted to put the mermaid charm on my ring finger, but I recently had to shorten my nails, so the thumb is the only nail the charm would fit on properly.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a blue holo base color using Blue Me Away by Bundle Monster.

  2. Use a wet makeup sponge to create a gradient using Mania by Rimmel.  I thought the polish was going to be a darker green/blue color, but was pleasantly surprised that it was quite transparent, so the glitter could still be seen through.

  3. Use white stamping polish to stamp scales (BM-502) on all nails except the thumb.
