Stripey Mermaid Manicure!
If you ask on Twitter "what colour should I paint my nails?" and you get only one reply, "green and blue stripes" (thanks @Cypherage) you should probably freak out for a few hours, then think 'HELL YES! WHY NOT, LET'S GO!'. And then create a Stripey Mermaid Manicure! Despite a complete lack of experience in the area of stripes, I threw caution to the wind, and this is how it went .....
Ulta3 Nail Colour in Mermaid Green
Ulta3 Nail Colour in Tahitian Lime
BYS Nail Enamel in Hocus Pocus
I couldn't be stuffed with a top coat this time. I'm on Day 2 of this mani and the polish is starting to chip a tiny bit at the tips, so maybe I should have. Note that these are all very inexpensive brands of polish, so this is quite the Budget Mani. In retrospect, Mermaid Green and Hocus Pocus are very similar in colour, and I probably should have chosen more distinct shades. But on the whole, I think it looks OK!
What do you think?
