Under the sea

Hi everyone!

Today I'll be showing you a very simple manicure that I'm still wearing now cause I love it so much.

The center piece of this mani are the shell shaped metal studs from born pretty store. You can find them here for $2.79 in packs of 20 pcs of 3/5mm in gold and silver.

Use code DILIC10 for 10% discount and free shipping.

I started with 2 coats of Broadway Nails- Aquarius on 8 nails and 1 coat of Pure Ice- Strapless over black polish for my accent nails.

I painted the water bubbles with acrylic paint using a small detail brush.

You can find the paints I used here

I have an old tutorial on how to paint the bubbles from my previous little mermaid inspired nail art . Click the link for step by step pictures.

I sealed the paint in one layer of top coat and after it completely dried I stuck the shells at the base of my nails with a little top coat. They are completely reusable as long as they're not sealed, which is a plus considering they're only 20 in a pack.

I find this design adorable and practical as well. The 3D studs don't catch on anything and they're not too raised on the nail.

It's perfect for summer and seems to be trending, if you care about trends. I personally don't.
