Fall Scales

4 Oct

This is supposed to look like scales; like a mermaid tail.  Because of the fall colors I’ve chosen, all I an see are turkey feathers.

I’m super duper happy with this look and even happier that it was so easy!  All bottle brushes folks.  No nail art tools required.  I left a little naked nail showing near the cuticle.  I little peep show if you will. 😉

Many colors when in to this design.  I had three brown shades: Jordana Chiffon (the lightest), Sinful Colors Nirvana (medium brown) and Essie Chocolate Cakes (dark, reddish brown).  The orangey looking color is actually China Glaze Peachy Keen, but in the photographs it translates more as a golden yellow.  The green is Popova of the new Trina Turk line from Julep.  The blue Color Club Gossip Column.  Topped it off with the tried and true Jordana Quick Shine top coat.  The possibilities are endless with this design.  You can do as many different manis as you can think up color combinations.  I’ve already got a couple more in mind.  Love it!

    I never thought I’d see such a pretty turkey manicure! Though, truthfully, the combination of earthy colors with that brighter green and the large “scales” make me think of a dragon.

      Ha ha… “such a pretty turkey manicure!” That made me laugh. I can see dragon, especially if I’d added one or two metallics or foils in the mix.

    You’re right, the color possibilities for this nail design is limitless!
