Mermaid Nail Design

Mermaids in movies and cartoons are always described as a mesmerizing creature that has long hair, beautiful tails and whose scales shine in moonlight.
I love the look of mermaid nail design but thought it must be pretty difficult.
Once I started trying it myself I couldn’t believe how easy it was!
The only tool I used was a toothpick.
The metallic blue/green nail polish I purchased was almost sheer and would have taken many coats to be opaque so I applied a blue base color to the nails first.
This is just the basics and hopefully it will inspire you to follow your imagination and create your own style.

Here’s what you need:
-         Base Coat
-         Blue Nail Polish
-         Gold Glitter Nail Polish
-         Top Coat
-         Toothpick

Apply a base coat to help protect the nails.

(Optional) Apply a base color, you might need two coats to make it nice and opaque. Let dry completely.
Apply the metallic nail polish to the nail, again you might need 2 coats for full coverage. Let dry.
Using a toothpick dipped in the glitter polish, apply several “u” shapes in a row.
You can also apply wavy lines to the nails. 


Apply a fast drying top coat and you’re done!


I like this design because it is a simple design that looks not so simple.
It was super easy to do and looks really cute!
