So I tried to do a mermaid scale french tip, hoping it would look dreamy and fade well closer to my cuticles, but it turned out OK, not something I'm over the moon about. I might take a stab at it again in the future! I was inspired to do this look because of the Glitter Gal polishes I bought today. Not directly related to the purchase, but the polishes themselves!
Anyways, I'd just like to say that after looking up the Glitter Gal website, I now know that they come in 9ml bottles (I thought they were minis) and that they have super boring ass names (again, I thought this was unusual and that I had purchased knock-offs), but best of all, when I found out they retail for something ridiculous like $11.95 a piece and I got mine for $2, I was cheering! I went and bought 2 more colours today, so perhaps i'll go back tomorrow and get some other colours if I can find them in the ginormous heap filled box that they're in.
Anyways, quite off topic, but thought I'd fill you in on that haha. I bought 2 (of what I thought looked the same) silver holo bottles only to realise a few days after purchasing the first bunch that I had a picked up a GREEN and SILVER, not TWO silvers! So the swatch for the previous Glitter Gal in which I stated as 'silver' is actually green. No wonder the bottle looks a tad yellow tinged!
ANYWAY... I was inspired by the silver holo to do something mermaid-ish, since it was a sheer holo that I could layer over different colours. I like how the pics turned out on cam, but not so much in real life :(
This was before I decided to rub off some black. I thought it looked too straight and unfaded like I had hoped, but then again, rubbing it down didn't really help either haha!
Too much black for me I'd say! What do you think? Let me know below!
