It’s the third Tuesday of the month, and that can only mean one thing – it’s #MonthlyMani time! This month’s theme is “Animal Instinct” so the Monthly Mani gals and I are channeling our wild sides! (Ha!)
I’ve been really into the color turquoise lately, and spending a lot of time in the water this summer, so I chose an aquatic theme for my manicure. I decided to create some “fish scales” with my nail art pen over an easy green and mint ombre pattern.
Here’s my setup:
As you can see, I gathered all of my materials together – a stamp/sponge for the ombre effect, nail art pen and various tools, and of course my polishes. I started by creating the ombre effect using shimmery green and mint colors, mixing them and then stamping them on my two accent nails. Then I drew the “fish scales” with my nail art pen over the ombre effect. I completed the look with a bright turquoise on the rest of my nails and finished off my manicure with a layer of top coat.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the #MonthlyMani girl gang to see what animal-inspired looks they’re rocking on their nails this month!
As always, thanks for reading!
