I haven’t had time recently to keep up with the weekly themes, but the Polish Party group is only once a month and the theme this time was ‘Inspired by a PP member’ so I just had to do this one 😀 !
I immediately chose Jayna from The Sequined Nail 🙂 ! She is so lovely and always comments on my work with positive feedback and I love looking at her nail art! Recently, she made some awesome freehand ‘Mermaid Scale Nails’ (see here). Most people use a stamping plate to create this look which I don’t have – so seeing Jayna’s freehand work really inspired me to go ahead and make them anyway 🙂 !
So here is my freehand ‘Mermaid/Fish Scale Nail Art Tutorial’:
And how I did the gradient on my nail:
As you can see from the equipment picture, I drew my scales on using an orange wood stick. I’m not sure why but I actually found it easier to do it this way 🙂 .
Hope you liked my interpretation of these nails and the tutorial 🙂 ! I’m in awe of your patience Jayna; I couldn’t have done another 3 nails, 2 was enough for me :p.
Thank you again for the inspiration Jayna. You have supported my work with lovely comments since I started this year and it hasn’t gone unnoticed, I appreciate it massively 🙂 ! This is my way of saying thank you 😀 !
