Evidentally the colour scheme was inspired by a beaded necklace that I'd made myself a few years back while in undergrad. I just love the combination of teal and gold. Glamourous!
To do this mani I first painted all my nails with a coat of teal creme (the Quo by Orly one, pictured below). I added one coat of the China Glaze teal-ish shimmer to make it sparkle a little. I then freehanded some black arches mermaid-scale style using black acrylic paint. Next I underlined each arch with an orange-toned shimmery gold polish, and then added one or two lines within each arch to create more of a window effect with acrylic paint.
- OPI 'OY another polish joke' (orange-toned golden shimmer)
- China Glaze 'Watermelon rind' (cool green/turquoise shimmer)
- Quo by Orly 'Mesmerizing waterfall' (turquoise creme)
