Mermaid Nails

Summer is pretty much right around the corner at this point, and the temperatures have definitely been rising in the city! It’s been making me crave a beach day, or at least some mermaid nails!

I started by painting my nails with a black soak off gel polish from Born Pretty. I applied and cured 2 coats of color and followed it up with a layer of Clavuz no wipe gel top coat. Each layer was cured for 60 seconds in a 48W UV/LED lamp, and then a blend of teal and green chrome powders from iMethod Beauty was applied with a sponge applicator and sealed in with another layer of gel top coat.

I applied teal chrome powder to the tips of my nails and green chrome powder to the rest of the area in order to create this gradient effect.

Review of Beauty Big Bang Chameleon Polish 001

Today I will be reviewing a beautiful green and purple chameleon polish from Beauty Bigbang. It’s simply labeled 001 from their Chameleon Polish line, but wow does this polish pack a punch!

It comes shipped in an elegant black and gold box. The front of the package has a circular window cut out so you can see the nail polish color inside while the back of the package lists the ingredients.

The bottle holds 9 mL, which is slightly less than your typical drugstore brand which contains anywhere between 12-15 mL, but I think that 9 mL is still a lot of polish! After all, when was the last time you finished off an entire bottle of nail lacquer?

Sparkly Multichrome Manicure

I’ve still been pretty busy these days, but I needed a change from my last manicure, so I went for something that would be quick and easy to put together for this week.

My polish of choice was something that looks stunning on its own: a multichrome polish from Beauty Big Bang. They call this Chameleon Polish 001, and the color is amazingly shifty in a good way! It has forest green tones that border on teal blue and has a dark purple undertone in indirect light.

Beauty Big Bang Chameleon Polish 001

This polish alone would have been enough for me, but I added some multi-toned rhinestones purchased from AliExpress to make it look even more fetching.

These rhinestones come in a few different sizes and have a somewhat iridescent sheen to them that make them appear multicolored.
