These originally started as scales but I don't know if they look right for that, hence the problem I had with the title of this post. I wanted to use different shades and finishes of blue polishes to give the illusion of a mermaid's tail. I guess I didn't place them right because the effect isn't what I expected. They still look pretty though.
I started with a base of China Glaze Bahamian Escape and then used a ton of polishes and a large dotting tool to make the dots. I did them one at a time so they could overlap on the right side so it took a bit of time until I finishes the whole nail. The polishes I used are: Essie Coat Azure, Barry M Cyan Blue, Essence Life is a Freeride, Avon Sequined Turquoise and Kiko 341 Cobalt Green.
I didn't wear these nails for too long because I took them off to do another manicure. I liked how they turned out though so maybe I'm gonna revisit this look someday. I still have to figure out how to place the dots to make them look more like scales. Don't forget that there are more Monday Blues in the links below!
Have a great week!
