After the mermaid scales tutorial I created the last time I was thinking about all the ladies wearing nail art. I realized that while the trend world is taken over mermaids and unicorns there are folks out there who like the aesthetics of things, but not the soft and cuddly image mystical creatures like that convey...
So I decided to make dragon scale nails! And just in time since Game of thrones and all that jazz is making a come back. The nail art technique is quite the same as the Mermaid nails I created a while back.
It was quite simple to transform it - use a dark base and a dark stamping polish. The flakies this time are more red and yellow hued to give it the look of fire. Also the shape of the stamping pattern that represents scales is a bit more pointy.
With all the new dragons flapping around the GOT universe *sorry I am still not a 100% fan of it* I must remind you Smaug is still bae <3
For this manicure I used Golden rose 94 as base. Over it I applied a lot of layers of Essence Glamaxy far, far away flakie nail polish. Over it I stamped with Mundo de Unas Dark green and BM-410 stamping plate. Just to make sure that the nails didn't turn out too dark mermaid looking I used MM05 and Barry M Gold foil to make the tiny dragon stamp.
