Mermaid Nails

Posted June 21st, 2011

For our trip to Costa Rica, I wanted fun nails that had an almost tropical vibe. I went back to Marie Nails (where I got this glittery combination) and got a bright tangerine color with graduated gold sparkles on just my ring fingers (which you can see here). It felt just festive enough and I couldn't wait to try out different combinations. Luckily my friend Marta was up for the challenge and let me paint her nails a pale greenish blue with aquamarine-colored glitter. It's quickly become my new favorite way to add a bit of sparkle to plain polish.

{Essie's Mint Candy Apple & Martha Stewart's Aquamarine Glitter}


{Paint two coats of the nail polish}


{Add top coat along the bottom half of the nail}

{Dip a separate brush into top coat and then into the glitter}


{Apply glitter to the bottom half of your nail}

  {End result}
