StampingSaturday: Minty Mermaid Scales

 For this Stamping Saturday my inspiration came from a bar of soap! It had such simple and cute packaging, it's too bad I didn't snap a pic of it - I always file stuff away in my memory "to do a mani like this later" and sometimes I actually remember!
Base color is Bonita Cocktails in Aruba - which proved tricky to photograph, as it's greener in the bottle, but definitely a great color that I'm still drawn to (and by that I mean, keep buying minty colored polishes). Stamping polishes are white and black from MdU. Scale pattern from Hehe 005, and the anchor from BornPretty 33.

And here's a little behind the scenes peek - I used NYC Strip me Off as protection for around my nail, rather than the intended purpose of it, which is a peeling base coat for use under glitters. (It's originally white, but I tinted mine for better visibility)

Link up below, I'd love to see more manis!
