This nail art is…odd. It looks almost like what I had in mind, but not quite!
I started with a sideways green gradient, just for fun. Unfortunately, my darker greens didn’t want to transfer that well, so the gradient is subtle!
When that was dry, I added a stamp from plate JQ L20, which was sent to me from Lady Queen Beauty. The stamps on this plate are cool and vaguely tribal? I put this on on the side of my nail, and it looks like an odd seashell or loopy seaweed!
~ Light green: Zoya – Tiana
~ Green: Salon Perfect – Escape to Neverland
~ Dark green: Sinful Colors – Last Chance
~ Stamp: JQ – L20
If you want to pick up the stamping plate for yourself, head over to the Lady Queen Beauty shop! It’s $5.32. Don’t forget about my 15% off code, BPLC15! Hope you enjoyed!
I had rather forgotten that I had a plate to review from Lady Queen Beauty! I had used it once briefly…but it got buried under some Emily de Molly stamping plates that just arrived! Ah, the trials and tribulations of a tiny plate versus a larger one :-p
Anyway, I went to town with this! I had been waiting to order a blue/teal jelly polish (and I finally did…) but it didn’t seem fair to make the plate wait for the polish to arrive! So, I just tried to put together a jelly-sandwich-type mani using regular polish. The result came out alright I think!
~ Teal holo: LA Girl – Teal Dimension
~ Teal stamp: Mentality – Turquoise Opaque
~ Silver stamp: Mentality – White Opaque
~ Stamp: hehe – 012
This plate is fun because it has a whole bunch of fun under the sea patterns! Lots of types of seaweed, lots of fish, some shell too! I had also forgotten that I owned Teal Dimension. It’s such a pretty teal holo glitter! Silly Eva, look through your collection more frequently!
If you want to pick up hehe plate 012 with all the fish and plants, you can find it at Lady Queen Beauty for $2.99 (plus 15% off with the code BPLC15. Enjoy!
This post fill many requirements. It is my “nautical” post for the OMD2 Challenge, my “summer nail art” entry for the Nail Polish Canada summer contest (which you guys should TOTALLY GO VOTE FOR) and the tutorial for it will (hopefully) be published at Nail It! Magazine in the next week or so…once I write it up.
The interesting part of this mani is that it is a duplicate of one I did almost exactly a year ago. Only this time, I have longer nails. And slightly more time. That being said, I still love fish. And seahorses. And just summer underwater stuff in general. So if I had to re-do one mani, I think this wasn’t a bad one to choose!

Today’s theme for the OMD2 challenge was “jelly,” so I have decided that it is time for another jelly sandwich pattern! One of the only jellies (or almost jellies) that I have is a green glitter, so I settled on a seaweed pattern.
This was made by painting white squiggly lines over a green base, and topping each of two layers of squiggles with my green jelly polish. Unfortunately, you can’t quite see the depth.
- Green (base): Sinful Colors – Exotic Green
- Green (jelly glitter): Sephora by OPI – Apple Scented
- White: KISS Nail Art – White Striper
I hope you enjoyed! I need to remember to bring out my jellies more often!
