The beach was deserted as she strolled along the white sandy beach. It was 6.30pm and the tourists had cleared off leaving the idyllic spot all for herself. She stopped by one of the deckchairs and removed her clothing down to her swim suit. She was glad for the calm and silence as she made her way to the waters edge. The water was glorious, like a tepid warm bath as she began to wade in deeper. She let herself fall back into the water and floated on her back for a while losing herself in tranquilly... ”Oi, You there!” called a shrill but happy voice. Huh, she thought the beach had been deserted...”Over here!” With the shimmer of a scaley tail she could see now who had been calling out. A beautiful young woman with the tail of a fish that gleamed and glistened in the evening sun. Her coral coloured hair splayed beautifully all around her in the water. Stunned, she blinked her eyes not sure if what she was seeing could even be true. ”Nice to meet you, my name is Ethal!” she said reaching for a handshake. “H..Hello..My name is Ithi. Are you... Can it be true that - ..Are you a mermaid?!" she replied still in disbelief. ”Well I don't gots no feets, that's for sure.” replied Ethal in an unusual manner. ”I have to go now, My girlfriends and I are going shoe shopping at the water outlet...its the best mall undersea. I'd hate to keep them waiting! Maybe I will see you again sometime!” and with a splash of her tail, she ducked under water and she watched as the beautiful glittery scales faded out of sight and deep into the sea.
”Ok, It was nice to meet y-...wait, what? Shoe shopping?... But you...You don't gots no feets..I mean..You do not have any feet.. But you have a tail...shoes? Whut..." she called out in disbelief but the mermaid had already gone.
For this manicure I started with two coats of Zoya's 'Charla' on my thumb, index and pinkie fingers. I then used tape to add Essie's 'Mezermised' and once dried I stamped using Barry M's 'Silver Foil with MoYouNail's 128 plate. To finish these nails I added Fogan's '17' to the tips. On my middle and ring finger I used two coats of Barry M's 'Mist' and created a ruffian nail using Pretty Serious 'Crystal lake and topped it all of with some blue gems.
What do you think of this mermaid inspired manicure? Why would a mermaid be shoe shopping?
Have a great weekend!
