Today I have a very fun (and summery!) design using scale nail art vinyls from Snail Vinyls! Yup, I am sooo done with winter and I can’t wait for the warmer weather.
When I first saw these scale vinyls, I knew that I wanted to do a mermaid scale nail design. I picked up OPI “Honey Ryder’ and Nicole by OPI “That’s What I Mint” because they are two gorgeous textured polishes that not only compliment each other but they make perfect mermaid colors!
I really love using vinyls, and I am pretty happy with how the mermaid look came out! They also feel really cool with the textured polishes. You could use a top coat to smooth out the texture, but I chose not to.
I’ll admit, my lines didn’t come out perfect. But that seems to be common for me when using textured polishes and vinyls. For some reason I just don’t think that they mix well.
And of course, a mandatory macro of the glittery scale goodness:
Please check out my YouTube tutorial for this nail design here:
The only problem that I had with this particular vinyl/stencil is that the vinyls didn’t peel off of the backing without the little scales in the middle… I had to pick almost all of the little scales out using tweezers 😦 But that could be because of the very tiny detail of these vinyls.
Be sure to check out the scale vinyls here and many more vinyls and stencils on www.snailvinyls.com!
