Aquatic Nail design

ORLY

So, I got the idea for an Aqua inspired mani!!

Now You Sea Me

I started with one of the new L’Oreal cremes, Now You Sea Me. I really love this shade. It reminds me of an almost dusty burnt teal – if that makes sense. I wasn’t completely wild about the formula though. The first coat went on a little thin and streaky. The second coat started to be the same, so I used a thicker second coat, and it was fine!

Add some sparkle

For an extra aquatic look, I topped Now You Sea Me with one coat of Wet n’ Wild Use Protection, from the new Spoiled collection, except on my ring fingers. It’s a really pretty teal jelly, loaded with multicolored micro glitters. The brush is super wide, so application is a breeze!

Create water bubbles

I used my dotting tool with Kiss Black and Kiss White to create some bubbles in the water!

Add Shimmering Scales

One my ring fingers, I created some shimmery scales with my extra large dotting tool and Sally Hansen Celeb City, Orly Charged Up, and Barielle A Bouquet for Ava.

I wanted to create some waves, so I used one of my Shany stamping holiday stamping plate for manicure , SH-11, with my Sally Hansen Teal-y Fast. On my middle fingers, I used the same plate with Konad Special White polish for the little starfish!

I had a lot of fun creating this, especially since it was inspired by one the greatest people on the planet.
