Abalone Shell Mermaid Scales

Hey Everyone! It is Monday, again, but at least it is a short week. I need to do my nails tonight but I really don't know what to do. I did do a cute mani over the weekend and I worked on some polish jewelry but I am still not overly excited about much. 

I started this mani with a base of Sinful Colors Into the Blue. You can find Into the Blue in the Sinful Colors Sail la Vie Collection. 

I thought Into the Blue would make a great base coat for Nail Sauce Abalone Shell. 

Abalone Shell is really pretty and I have the lovely Stephanie from At Peace with Polish  to thank for this one. I had won this one from a giveaway Stephanie was hosting. It is a gorgeous polish and so pretty layered over Into the Blue.

The combination made me think of mermaid tails so I used plate GA14 from the Gals Princess plate set to make scales. I used white polish for the stamping.

I don't know how mermaid like this mani looks but it was definitely very pretty.

I want to try Abalone Shell over all the colors now.

I should probably also try it on it's own.

I love the soft gold duochrome shift that this pretty blue shimmer shows off at the right angle.

Over the dark blue it looks like there is some green flashing in there. It is a really pretty effect.

I also liked how Abalone Shell made my nails look more green than blue. Pretty cool considering both polishes are blue.

I would have done the stamping in a different color had I thought about it. Probably something to bring out the scale look more. Overall I still loved this look.

I don't own any other Nail Sauce polishes but the brand is definitely on my radar now. Thank you Stephanie for introducing me to this brand! 

That's all for now :)


  1. Lovely mani! You should have added this to our Monday Blues Inlinkz. There's a Google Doc with all the codes in the left bar of my blog. I would love it if you would join!
