Because nine times out of 10 your intended fish scale design will wind up looking more like fishnets. But super cool purple fishnets over a holographic turquoise base, which sounds like just stupendous leg adornment, right?
For these nails that could either be mermaid scales or fishnets, or perhaps even a mermaid IN fishnets, I used two holographic A England polishes, turquoise Whispering Waves and plummy Crown of Thistles, painting the purple scales over the turquoise base on my index and pinkie fingers, before topping my two middle fingers with one coat of Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s Mermaid glitter topper.

These are awesome!
Doh!! I still haven’t bought Whispering Waves!
This is an excellent mani!
It’s a fabulous one – if it’s on your list, I’d definitely recommend it. I somehow always forget how awesome their polishes are. They have just the most perfect formulations. The new collection has lots of pretty purples in it for you. 🙂
I saw that new collection so yeah, may as well get them all once a US stockist has the new collection…it can sometimes take awhile. I was seeing swatches of Waves forever before it was on the US sites.
The index finger is my FAVE. A England…I’ve got Crown of Thistles, but I might need Whispering Waves now. Gorge.
Whispering Waves is fantabulous – a big recommendation on that one. The colour is beautiful and it applies so nicely.
