Before, there were unicorns, but since Summer is upon us everything is mermaid related right now. And the flakie trend is sweeping the nail nation. I am surprised too since flakie nail polishes are a part of manicure land for years, but ladies are losing their minds over the loose flakies. I don't get it! I don't like most of the loose glitter type materials. So, I created this look that looks exactly as if I would use the loose glitter with only half the mess!

WHAT YOU NEED:

I used P2 Swimming Pool as the neon blue base.

The flakies are a mix of 2 polishes, Revlon Heavenly and Finger Paints Psychedelic Hue.

The stamping polish I used is Born Pretty Light Blue and hehe 005 stamping plate. For the extra sexy accent, I used a BPS mermaid charm.

You will also need a makeup wedge sponge if you don't know how to capture glitter inside the polish.

Step 1: Apply the base nail polish.

Step 2: Apply the first layer of glitter. Here, you either do it with fishing out the glitters, or you apply it to a makeup sponge and than dab it on your nails. Whatever is your preference.

Step 3: Apply the second layer of glitter nail polish. I recommend that it is a different shape and color than the original.

Step 4: Apply the fish scale stamp. If you don't like stamping, then free hand draw them, they are quite fun to draw.

Step 5: Time to clean up and add the charm. I used a lot of nail glue to stick it on since it is a big piece.

The trick to this manicure is to pile on as much glitter as you can, preferably a mix of flakies. And at the same time you will need a stamping polish and a base color to match, or it does not look much like mermaid skin.

FINISHED LOOK:

Just look at how pretty these are! The only mess I made was the usual with stamping, no glitter everywhere :)
