The perfect way to start your monday is with this mermaid nail design!
In honour of the adorable mermaid spa party Ashley organized for her little sister, I decided to try a cute mermaid nail design! What’s great about this design is that it looks very complicated but it actually was extremely simple. First, start by painting your base colour, which will be a light turquoise.
Once the base colour is dry, grab two other shades of blue and a sponge. I chose a darker turquoise and a navy blue, both with some sparkle to add a little bit of shine to the nail.
Grab your sponge and dab the nail polish onto the nails.
As you can see it looks super messy, but don’t worry we’ll clean that up after.
Next repeat that but with the darker blue, and try to do mostly the tip of the nail, that way you create the ombre look.
In order to give it that mermaid look I chose to do a fish scale design on the thumb. It’s fairly simple. Start at the top of the nail and outline two semi circles. Do that again all the way down the nail and you get the design below!
Once that was all done I cleaned up the messy edges of the nail with a cotton swab and nail polish remover. Add your top coat to seal it all in and you’re done!
Enjoy your mermaid manis!
