The Digit-al Dozen does Gradient+ Day 3 - Paint Box Polish Mermaid Nails

Hey everyone! It is Day 3 of Gradient+ week and today I couldn't let this week pass without doing some mermaid nails! It seemed such an obvious choice for the theme and I've been meaning to do one with some of my Paint Box Polish microglitters for ages! 

To create this look, I started out with 2 coats of Polar Bear Club, a gorgeous blue microglitter. This polish was an exclusive colour for the Christmas in July box put together by Ellagee last year so it is unfortunately not available to buy. I then used Polar Bear Club and Fight the Fairies (a custom created for my friend Kim from The Ides of Polish which you might have already seen here) to create my gradient.

I then used China Glaze Cherish and Moyou Sailor 05 plate for the mermaid scale design. I wanted something quite understated and in 'mermaidy' colours. I think the stamping might have turned out more discreet than I had planned but I kind of like it anyway. I definitely need to get myself some more mermaidy stamping plates or vinyls to have a few more options. This Moyou design is cute but I'd like a finer, more detailed option too (if you have any suggestions for me, please do leave me a comment)!

I'm sorry these polishes are not available to purchase but Pam has made some other colours with a similar finish that you might like if you like these ones!
