O.P.I Pirates Week- Mermaids Tears & Silver Shatter

Here it is...

  The day has come when I finally wear Mermaids Tears. I can see what all the hype is about now. Wow... Just Wow!

  This color is beautiful That is all there is to it. Mermaids Tears is a murky, light Jade Green creme. This color could have had the formula from hell but instead it has the most amazing, creamy and smooth formula out of any light Green I own. I just needed Two effortless coats for full coverage. For this one I decided to create the look of mermaid tails using O.P.I Yodel me on my Cell for the sponging on the tips and Ski Teal we Drop for the netting stamp from plate BM209. I lalalalalove this manicure soo much. This actually turned out how I saw it in my head.

 This is probably my favorite combo so far. These Two play soo well together!
Thoughts on this lightbox pic? I'm still playing around with
lighting and such.

And there you have my mermaid nail mani. I may have to replicate this for the day I go see the movie because I love how it turned out sooo much!

What do you guys think?

  2. I adore this mani! Definitely my favorite of all your POTC ones this week! I think the first two pictures show the detail of the mani better then the lightbox pic.

    Hopefully I'll be getting the BM plates for my birthday so I can try and replicate this great look!

  15. This is also one of my favourite manicures of yours. I really like how you used the name of the polish to inspire the manicure. And even though the name IS very lovely your design is even nicer. My favourite part is the clear rhinestones that look like tears. Stunning!
