Dark Mermaid Nails – Born Pretty Store 

 Hey all!  Today’s nail art as you can see is these dark mermaid nails I did in collaboration with Born Pretty Store. 

For this look you will need:

  • OPI natural nail base coat 
  • Black polish (China Glaze Liquid Leather)
  • Born Pretty store chameleon polish 223 (Item ID #27745 or purchase Here
  • Fast drying top coat 
  • Born Pretty Store Mermaid Vinyls (Item ID #27415 or purchase Here)
  • Clear polish (La Femme) 
  • Assorted pearl rhinestones 

Step one:

 Apply one coat of OPI natural nail base coat to all nails, followed by one coat of your black polish to serve as a base for the chameleon polish.

Step two:

 Apply a quick drying top coat to the ring nail only. Then paint all but the ring nail with two coats of chameleon polish and allow them to dry between coats to prevent a gloopy mess. Leave your nails to dry for 15 minutes.

Step three:

 Apply one of the mermaid or fish scale vinyls to your ring nail and secure firmly in place by pressing down. Once secured apply one thick coat of chameleon polish. Leave for a couple of seconds them peel away the vinyl. Follow with a coat of clear polish on the ring nail.

Step four:

 While the clear polish is wet use a dotting tool or whatever you like to attach the little pearls wherever you wish, in my case I also attached pearls to my middle nail on both hands to extend the look outward on my hands. 

Step five: 

Once the clear coat is dry finish all nails with your favourite top coat including going over the pearls to seal everything in. Once dry, you’re done!
