Creative musings in bright colors

For Day 23 of the 31 Day Challenge, I was inspired to do mermaid nails, based (loosely) off The Little Mermaid! I have done mermaid nails in the past, but was not 100% satisfied with them. I like these quite a bit!


Unlike my former attempt, here I kept the entire base coat sparkly and faded to a pale blue rather than to a dark blue creme. The scales are the same (although they are now of mostly uniform size) and I think I was able to color-correct more appropriately!


…And now I have Under the Sea stuck in my head. Ah, there are worse things!


Honestly, these nails are most fitting as I just returned from a weekend at the beach! There is nothing odder than a beach house full of scientists and almost-doctors. Some strange conversations (and far too healthy food!)



  • Teal glitter: Julie G – Mermaid’s Tale
  • Blue glitter: Nabi – Ocean Blue
  • Light blue glitter: Nabi – Petite Teal
  • Gold: Maybelline – Bold Gold
  • Teal: Zoya – Wednesday


So many sparkles! Go check out what the other girls have put together for Movie day!
