It’s been nice and warm lately and it’s giving me a great energy! So, I have something energetic and colourful design today! I’d call them Japanese Mermaid Nails!!
The outcome looks busy and a little bit eye-hurting, but they started off very simple like these! I used sky blue and lavender nail polishes from the Face Shop.
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!
I love all the designs together. How did you do the marble effect?
Oh my god! Those nails are super beautiful! Maybe the best I ever saw! I love them !!!
2 thumbs UP! amazing design! Just wondering how did U got the water marbling detail? so gorgeous!
OMG! That’s gorgeous! I really really really like it!
….can’t stop looking at it!
oh boy, how did you manage to put all this on a nail? i love it 😀
and everything so neat… it would be just a mess if i try to do something like this 🙁
How did you do to make this window of water marble?
is is a “true” water marble you did with tape on your nail except where you want the water marble to be…?
Wow!!! You. Are. Awesome!! I love it, it looks waaaay too complicated for me…>.<
*｡.:*:･Japanese Mermaid Nails*｡.:*:･….very nice;D
I love how colorful this desing is! ^.^ awesome as always~!
I like that “pink” desing more but both (pink and blue) are really good 8)
and yes, the weather is changing in here. We have to say goodbye to summer. But autumn might be even better than summer (I’m not sure, though).
I think this is absolutely stunning and oh, so very creative!
I love them so much! I’m also going to try something like that now I saw these.
I love how you did patches of water marbling rather than on the full nail. Very cute! 🙂
This is a magical mani! Unfortunately it’s starting to get a little cooler, which I hate :(. Enjoy the warm weather~
