Get Nailed: Mermaid Nails

CVS has a really amazing deal going on right now with their Revlon nail polishes. All Revlon polishes are on sale for $4.99 and you get $3 in ECB's back on each bottle (limit 6)! So you end up spending $30 and getting $18 back! As soon as I found out, I ran (not literally, I don't run) over to CVS to take full advantage of this offer, and I was immediately drawn to all of the blues !

My Purchase (L to R) 730 Royal, 340 Ocean, and 441 Radiant.

Time for a nail poish secret of mine. I have a love/hate relationship with blue nail polish. Someone in high school once told me that blue nail polish was "so juvenile", and that particular thought has seared its way into my memory and only recently could i get past it with the help of my sister in law (I make it sound so serious, huh?) Anyhow, I saw these polishes and immediately thought "Mermaid!"

I began with this look which was cute but it was missing something. What do mermaids have (besides fabulous hair, nice shells, and amazing singing voices of course)..SCALES! Once I decided I was going to attempt scales, I gathered a few complimentary colors and begin to place rows of dots in alternating colors, layering them on top of each other.

This is my final outcome. It would have been amazing if I had a dotting tool, but I still haven't gotten around to ordering one so this is what you get! Anyone else take advantage of the current CVS sale or do you have your own Mermaid Nails to show off? Leave us a comment below or visit our FB page !
