Mermaid Nail Art Failure

I'm a little sad over this one, I had it pictured in my head and I'm not sure yet where I killed it.
The Idea was to look like the scales of a Mermaids tail.
I used Nina Pro Mermaid over white as my base color. Mermaid is a beautiful sheer pale sparkly green.
I Stamped using konad image plate m57 and China glaze Strawberry fields. Double stamping is not easy and the curve of my nails makes the full nail images impossible. Then I sponged a nameless Sally Hansen sheer sparkly pink from the tip up toward the cuticle. Then lightly sponged mermaid over all.

Pictures are taken indoors in my wonky lightbox.






Look at the pretty shimmer!

I will try this again!

  1. It doesn't look as bad as you think. I wouldn't go as far as to call it a failure.

  2. Ooooooo...not a failure!
    Do you have the plate with bubbles?- just stamp over the spots you don't like!

    Ange-Marie- I told you to get out of my head!!! If you weren't younger than me and blonde, I'd say we were seperated at birth. ;D

  6. I love the idea of this; this is not a fail! Perhaps you could use a darker color or a more irredescent/metallic-y polish?

  9. Aw, I don't think you failed. It actually looks very pretty and mermaidy and the slight smudging makes the 'mermaid' theme more believable . I love your wonderful ideas. :)

  10. I think you did a great job, especially with the double stamping. Maybe it looks like a failure to you, because of the light colors, but it looks good to me. =)
