mermaid nails





Polishes used:
American Apparel 'peacock'
Milani '582 teal'
Seche Vite top coat

I feel like these should be called my mermaid nails, they look just like a glittery mermaids tail in my opinion! I used American Apparel nail polish in 'peacock' as a base. I love this one as it only needs one coat to be opaque. Over the top I layered three layers of the milani nail polish. I picked this up in New York in the summer and as far as I'm aware they're not actually available in the UK but there's a few on eBay and Amazon if you have a look. I wanted loads of glitter so I put three coats of it on to make it very opaque and sparkly. I finished them off with my favourite top coat seche vite to make it extra shiny and to help prevent chipping.


 What do you think of my mermaid nails, will you be trying out anything similar?
