Despite what the great British weather is doing right now, summer is in full swing, which means a decent manicure and some fancy nail art is a must!
Here's how you can nail it this season with a step by step guide on getting mermaid inspired nails!
Step 1: Carefully file your nails and push back your cuticles before starting with a base layer to protect the nail.
Step 2: Apply one to two base coats of a silver metallic nail polish (we love Robyn's Glam Squad from All That Jazz) and rest. Leave a drying time of between three and five minutes between each application.
Step 3: Now apply your top coat. To get the mermaid sea effect, opt for a metallic turquoise nail polish and apply one to two coats, once again leaving time for it to dry between each application.
Step 4: Cut out your nail sticker in the desired geometric shape and place the adhesive strips on your nail, making sure you press firmly on the edges of the nail.
Step 5: Apply a final layer of your chosen top coat (we recommend Fleur's Sea Of Love from All That Jazz) and once the nail is completely dry, very gently remove the adhesive strips one by one.
