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?
