Mermaid? Stamped Skittles [Nail Art]

I have another mermaid-inspired stamping manicure! Not my finest stamping, but it will do!

The base polish, you may recognize, is Emily de Molly- Oceanic Forces.  The green on the thumb is Illamasqua- Smash, and I used Zoya- Purity to stamp the white pattern, which is from Bundle Monster plate BM-203.  As you can see, those earlier Bundle Monster plates have pretty small images, and won't cover my nails edge to edge.

It was kind of odd to stamp over such a chunky glitter, but I had it completely smoothed with topcoat, so I think it worked out!


  1. This is so pretty and totally reminds me of a mermaid too. I love that jellish looking polish with the circles glitters.

  2. I think stamping over glitter can look pretty cool! I tried sometime back and I realized you have to pick the right glitter, but I think it totally works over EdM Oceanic Forces. (never tried any old BM plates so I can't comment on those ;) )

  3. I think the never BM plates are muuuch better than the older ones!

  4. Thank you! Yes, one of two Emily de Mollys I own- fabulous!
