Fishy Experiment

For this manicure:
Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat
1 coat Essie Vermillionaire
Sponge gradient: SH Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed and WnW French White Creme
Stamped using Essie Good as Gold (Image from XL B)
1 coat Essie Shine of the Times
Seche Vite

I am really loving adding a coat of sparkle/flake-y on top of stamping.  Here I was hoping I could add to the fishiness of the manicure.  I still want to work on this idea, because it holds multiple possibilities! I was aiming for a Koi fish manicure but hubby didn't go straight to fish scales, just saw "vintage", so I'm not sure if this translates.  I might try with a more scale-like stamp next time!

Thank you for taking a peek!  What's on your nails?  



  1. I like the colors they are dead on koi fich but maby the stamp isn't so fishy
    My nails are white and raspberry pink

  2. Definitely koi colors, maybe you are right, a more fishy stamp :)

  3. My nails are a crazy neon-ish green :)

  4. I've immediately loved ur style.I'm not into stamping at all,but you seem a colorfull crazy fun person! :) and that's a plus. Love your blog and nailart! Hope to see you soon in mine and my challanges :)

  5. Nice Blog :)
