Mermaid Nail Art

Hey there! Welcome back for another day of Mythical Creature nails. Today I am back with another mermaid because I can't get enough! In preparation for this week I did a lot of look ing for Inspiration on Pinterest and today's mani is inspired by a mani I found on there and I am SOOo excited about it. :)



Mermaid Nail Art

This mani was inspired by this one HERE by Starry Nails. A neat little mermaid scene at sunrise! When I first saw them I was just like WOW! There was so much to them. The sky color, the ocean color, the splashing of water on her fin and the rock it was all just soooo neat and well thought out. I didn't think I could pull it off but I decided to give it a go and ended up being pretty happy about it. I had SOOO much fun painting it too. Before I blabber on about how I did lets get a little closer.

First off I am amazed it actually looks like a person. I was pretty sure I was going to have to pretend it was an alien but nope! LOL! For this look I started with a white base. I used Takko Lacquer Vice and then the art was done in various custom mixes of acrylic paint. I started with the sky which was so fun. I LOVE a pretty sunrise and or sunset over the ocean so any time I get to paint the sky I love it. Then After that I did the sea which I tried to vary the color selection in it to give it more depth and make it look closer/further away. :) After that I then did the rock and Mermaid roughly in white. Then filled it in slowly and carefully.

Then came all the lil details like the splashes, the birds and then it was time for top coats. I layered shiny + matter to get a really nice cohesive look. I was just really happy with how it came out. I did it midday which is not normal, so I thought I would paint again that night but nope, there was no way I was removing it.
