#TheLacquerRing: Under the Sea

#TheLacquerRing is back with our second prompt for July. The art prompt this month is "Under the Sea". Having recently failed hard at a mermaid tail look I needed to redeem myself. So I'm having another go at it and I think this one was much more successful. 

I started with a base of Literary Lacquers Mirror of Galadriel. This is a stunning silver beauty that is filled with so many holographic rainbows I had a hard time getting a decent shot of it. It applied great, full coverage in two coats. 




After my base was dry I then applied Scale Vinyls from Polished for Days.  I sponged on a gradient of Painted Polish I'm on a Boat and Naughty Nautical. After peeling off the vinyls and spending hours cleaning off the stray glitters....I deemed this a success!!

  11. The perfect mermaid tail!! I've been surrounded my mermaids today. My five year old has been running around in her Ariel costume, watching The Little Mermaid and watching mermaid videos on YouTube. It was only appropriate that I see a mermaid mani today! :)

    I've never tried full sheet nail vinyls...I'd probably make a big mess, lol. But...you most certainly did not! ;) - Bubbie

    1. I did make a huge mess. I just cleaned it up, for hours, before taking the pictures.
