- I did 2 coats of Dior Saint Tropez.
- Then, I topped it with one coat of Dior Perlé.
- Once it was dry, I used a striper brush and Milani Silver Stilettos to make the mermaid scale pattern. It's far from perfect or symmetrical, but the stamp I had with this design was too big and there weren't many scales on my nail so this allowed me to make the scales the size I wanted.
- I added Seche Vite for a shiny finish to show all of the sparkly shimmer in Dior Perlé.
Look at all of the gorgeous shimmer in this macro shot!
And here is a picture of this mani in the sun with all of it's sparkly goodness showing!
I am SO in love with this mani. It will be hard to take it off this week (but the new Brazil by OPI should arrive mid week so I'll have to take this off to share those beauties with you!) so I may do a tutorial tomorrow so you can recreate mermaid scales, too! What do you think? Would you want to see a tutorial?
Thanks so much for reading!
