I created the gradient all over my nails with pink and blue, and then added some hand painted flowers and mermaid scales on the index and ring fingers. Then I partially covered the thumb, middle and pinkie using a few strips of scotch tape that are cut in random shapes. I created the water marble effect as usual and removed the tape to reveal the gradient and flowers underneath.
It’s a really busy design but I like the colour combination very much! I don’t know where this idea came from, but I knew that I wanted to design something mermaid related, because mermaids are super hot trending (in me) right now ever since I watched the Pirates of the Caribbean 4!
