Glitter Mermaid Tail Nail Art Mint Green

Yes, I know this is another green manicure. I’ve honestly been trying to do something different, but this isn’t really my fault. This Mermaid Tail Nail Art is part of this month’s Maniswap challenge, and the prompt was mint green.

Gradient Stamping Spring Celtic Knot Design

I feel like I’ve really lost my nail art mojo lately. My full-time job is taking a lot out of me at the moment and I think there’s no space left for creativity.  Or energy left at the end of the day. I came up with this gradient stamping design because I wanted something with a little more interest than a straightforward stamped mani, which has kind of been my default lately.

It’s still quite simple and quick, and the gold flakes in the base colour show through delightfully.
