Beauties and the Beast

Hi Readers! I'm not really sure what the deal is today but I can't pick my normal font! What the french blogger?! Well I'm not going to let that stop me from posting my mani so nah-nah-nah Blogger! The super cute Lindsey over at Never Land Nail is having a nail art contest with a twist! She's got the super cute theme idea of magical and mystical images. Check out her blog and the contest rules here. WELL some of those things are right up my alley. I would wear mermaid tails every single day of my life I think. I'm also a HUGE fan of all things dragon so this was just a super great idea for me. This is the fun mani I came up with!
I used a few techniques to come up with this mani. I did some sponging with a variety of blues and greens on the thumb and index. I did multiple colors on the plates when I stamped the background for the faeries and for the faeries themselves I double stamped over the image so as to make her look as if she was hovering. Here's a nice close up!
My intent was to show a mani with mermaids--the thumb and ring, a dragon, the index, and faeries.
What do you think of this one readers?  I have to say I'm really loving it!  Please make sure you stop by Lindsey's blog and check out all the other entries!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
