Sparkly Ombre Mermaid Nails

Summer is here and the heat has really set in. We’re in the middle of a long stretch of days that make you feel like you’re going to melt when you step outside. To counteract that heat, I did a cool mermaid look on my nails!

Mermaid nails are so-o-o-o popular right now! I think they look awesome. All sparkly and seasonal. Lots of looks include a fish scale stamp or decal on them, but this time, I decided to be subtle about it and leave the obvious parts out. Below is the final look.

This mani was created by doing the ombre technique with a pretty turquoise polish that fades into a green and was then topped with a blue-green glitter that has microglitter as well as a few chunky pieces in it. It’s so cute! And so sparkly – and so summertime!


Here’s are the products I used to achieve this look:


Basecoat – Essie, Fill the Gap
Turquoise – L.A. Colors, Seafoam
Green – Sinful Colors, Mint Apple
Glitter – Sally Girl, Brainy
Topcoat – Sally Hansen Insta Dri
