Twinsie Tuesday - Fictional Animal Print

Hi everyone!!

This week for Twinsie Tuesday, we are supposed to do a fictional animal print.  After hurting my brain trying to figure out what to come up with, I decided to cheat.  I remembered a mani I did last year that reminded me of a mermaid manicure, so I decided to do it again.


I started out with two coats of OPI Russian Navy.  I then added a coat of Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean and finally, a coat of Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed.

This mani reminds me of mermaids because it looks like under water to me, with the seaweed floating around.  So yes, I cheated, but I have a good reason for it right? ;0)  I don't think it's too much of a stretch, heehee.  What would have made it perfect would be the scales.  Unfortunately, I don't have a stamper with that design, and I would have totally ruined it if it was freehanded.

What do you guys think of this one?  Have you ever done a mermaid mani before?

I'm looking forward to seeing what ideas my twinsies came up with this week.  Go check them out!
