Mermaid Scales

I absolutely loved the neon scales in this video by pixiepolish and decided to have a go with some slightly less bright colours. I chose some shimmery ones to go for a mermaid scales look.

When I painted the base coat of A England Princess Tears, it was so beautiful I almost gave up on the scales design and thought about leaving them just as they were… But I really wanted to try the scales out and I’m glad I did. They were a bit tricky to get even and would probably take me several attempts to get perfect. I did, however, get loads of compliments on these, so although they’re all different sizes I think it’s still a great design with loads of impact!
