Mani Monday

You guys rocked my socks off with your link ups last week, and I'm excited for this week's fab link ups as well!

Here's my Mani Monday....mermaid nails in three simple steps, inspired by Leila's mermaid Barbie.

You will need:
*Megan *Jessica *Miranda *Leah *Portia *Maria (or any of your favorite colors in a variety of blues and greens, one with some glitter and one different color with a hint of metallic - Maya or Emma would work perfectly ) *a nail dotting tool or toothpick *base coat *top coat

Step One: First thing's first - you'll need to do a coat of base coat, then one or two coats of Megan.

Step Two: Using your dotting tool, do random dots of all your blue and green colors from the tip of the nail, to about a third of the way down. Then do a few random dots of your metallic color (Maria in this case.) Do this to your pinky finger, middle finger and thumb.

Step Three: On your index and ring fingers do a coat of Portia or your favorite glitter. Go over everything with your top coat.



Voila, you're done! Enjoy your mermaid-inspired manicure!


Sticking with an ocean theme, I want to show off 29 in Heel's Ocean Ombre Mani:


Gorgeous!


And now it's your turn to link up!! Heather and I can't wait to see what pretties you've come up with! After you link, don't forget to check out some of the other fabulous links, and we'd love it if you grabbed a button!

Happy Mani Monday!

Hi Heather! New follower, found you through Sew Caroline. Looking forward to getting to know you. I really appreciate the manicure photos. I work in a job where having lovely polished nails just doesn't work (research - gloves on, gloves off, and I've just given up on polish) but I sure enjoy looking at the photos of lovely manicures!
