Midnight Mermaid

Midnight Mermaid Nail Art

I'm always a fan of black and gold, so I decided to do a black and gold mermaid look.  With some +Bundle Monster stamping and a bevy of pearls and studs, this look is pretty simple to create.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • Sephora by O.P.I. - 212 Sephora
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Liquid Gold
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-502 (scales)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-510 (coral)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Gold seashell studs
  • Pearls
  • Round gold studs
  • Gold caviar beads

Some people don't like too many embellishments, but I lean towards the "you can never have too much" side.  If the middle finger is too much for you though, you can do a simple single seashell stud on the base like the pinky finger.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a black base color.

  2. Apply one coat of a black glitter polish to the index and ring fingers.  The Sephora polish is black with gold micro glitter and a holo glitter, which is perfect for the mermaid scales.

  3. Use gold stamping polish to stamp the scales (BM-502) on the index and ring fingers.

  5. Add a gold seashell stud to the base of the pinky, and add a mix of studs, pearls, and caviar beads to the middle finger.  Also add a seashell stud to the thumb, over the coral stamping.
