The weekend I painted these some friends from lab met at my place to paint dragon eggs! This seems like the best use of the pretty but terrible Mentality polish stash that I never knew what to do with. In honor of this event, I painted my nails to look like dragon scales! Which totally works for Day 13 – animal print. No leopard spots here!
Hilariously (and intentionally) the base for this nail art is Dragon by A England. Dragon is a beautiful grey-green holo with a pink shine. It covers almost perfectly in one coat, I used two because it feels strange not to!
I then dabbed on (with saran wrap) Tristam and Saint George also by A England, and added one coat of flakies (Festival by piCture pOlish).
When all that was dry, I added a scale stamp using Essie Good as Gold. Clear stampers still amaze me with how easy it is to line things up!
I love the way the flakies peek through the scales! I don’t know that you can see much of the teal and blue colors on top of Dragon, but it made me feel happy to add them anyway.
Hope you enjoyed! Have some dragon eggs 🙂
