Feelin' Fishy

Hello all! As the title indicates, I'm feeling fishy today! Haha. I was mulling over what to do for my nails and after a long thinking process (and inspiration found on Pinterest), I went with fish! I think they came out really cute and I have come up with more fishy ideas for the future, so stay tuned for that. Here are the fishes that I came up with for today.

Left hand
With my lack of a lighter, more water-esque blue, I went with essence Let's get lost, which is a blueish teal with a cream finish. I think it works. What color polish would you use for water? For the fish I went with essence Lime up! and Sally Hansen's Sun Kissed. Sun kissed was a PAIN to paint! Man, it was frustrating, that's why some of the fish have wonky tails haha. Speaking of frustrating...I have been searching for a light sky colored blue polish, does anyone have a recommendation? I've been looking into OPI's Cattiude but it's hard to find since the collection is older. It's pretty much been impossible to find a sky blue, especially with a cream finish. Such a disappointment, so I am turning to you, my awesome readers for help. Where can I find a light blue color with a cream finish???!!!! Ahhh!! I would really love to find one. 

Right hand
What I used:
Base coat: Essie Ridge filling base coat
Base color: essence Let's Get Lost
Fish: Lime green= essence Lime Up!
Orange= Sally Hansen Sun Kissed.
Eyes and bubbles: White and black nail polish, dotting tools
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Overall I was really happy with this manicure. I got this idea from The Nail Trail, who I think has some really cute designs. Check her out! I think the fish are so cute and they were pretty simple to created. I just painted a circle with the polish for the head and then a sideways V for the tails. I realized after I applied the top coat that I forgot fins but oh well! I think the next time I am in a fishy mood, I will add fins and scales, should be fun. I hope you all enjoyed my post for today.

Until next time,
