Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me! Well, I do, just on my nails. I always have glitter on me. And cat fluff. It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard. That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different. I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?
I got a bunch of really awesome nail vinyls from Lou It Yourself the other day and of course the mermaid stencil jumped out at me. For the sake of transparency, I should tell you that I'm using acrylic tips here. My real nails have taken a bit of a beating due to how much I like picking off polish so these are a good alternative. There's a Nailene kit I found that actually works really well. The top coat is what I've been using lately instead of Seche Vite and it's just so shiny I can't even a bit. Anyway, once my nails were prepped, I applied two coats of a navy Quo polish then applied a coat of Seche Vite to help with the drying process. Once dry, I applied my stencil and sponged on a gradient of Color Club Blue Heaven, ILNP Star Gazing and Glitter Gal Dark Purple. I did two quick coats then peeled the stencil off. BAM I'm a mermaid bitchessss.
The Verdict: Really like the polishes and extra like the stencil. I was able to do five nails with two stickers which is awesome. Hooray for holo mermaidnesssss yisss
