I've always loved The Little Mermaid and the adventurous side of Ariel herself. I wanted something to capture the whimsy and beauty of a mermaid. I've had this manicure saved for awhile, but I think I'd re-do Ariel inspired nails again and again because there are tons of possibilities!
I decided on using my Nubar Reclaim to represent her tail, I would assume it would be shiny and maybe even holographic. Or maybe I just have high hopes for mermaids. I did a glitter gradient with Nubar's Hyacinth Sparkle to bring Ariel's seashell bra into the manicure. I couldn't find a way to incorporate her gorgeous red hair, but maybe next time I will. Because lets be real, that hair defines her!
You can see the glitter gradient much better in this picture, I just used the flash to show the holographic effect. I've come to learn that I really love gradients and I'd like to think I'm improving at them.
Sorry for another short blog, I have got to stop doing these short posts! I was just anxious for nail mail today that I waited on posting in the hopes that I'd have Rainbow Honey's Equestria Collection to swatch, but that post will have to wait until Friday.
