#bbcchallenge: Mermaid nails

Happy Monday! My Instagram followers yesterday saw a photo of three nail polishes and I also mentioned that I’m working on my next nail art post. Well today you can see with what I came up with. The theme for my manicure was mermaids and so here are my mermaid nails for the The Beauty Blog Coalition Mermaid Challenge 🙂

Illamasqua Noble, Avon Gel Finish Royal Vendetta, Butter London Stardust, Butter London Victoriana

I started my mermaid themed nails with Révérence de Bastien base coat that I received in my Birchbox UK November box. Next I added a layer of gorgeous turqoise blue Illamasqua nail polish in Noble. Next I used a piece of sponge to create blue ombre nails. I applied some Noble and some Avon Gel Finish polish in Royal Vendetta on a sponge and then dabbed my nails with the sponge until I was happy with the result. Next I added a layer of Butter London Stardust to add a little bit of glitter to my nails. Next I free-handed fish scales using nail art brush from Born Pretty Store and Butter London Victoriana. On my ring finger I added golden seashell nail art stickers. I finished my mermaid nail art with Nails Inc 45 second Top Coat with Kensington Caviar.
