Shimmery gradient with 3D gel polish shell

It's been ages since I played with some of my gel polishes to create something a little 3D.  I think the last thing I did was the white gel design of the face and hands for the Supernatural prompt of the 31 Day Challenge last yet.

Anywho, I spotted a shell design using gel polish somewhere, and I thought I would try my hand at that.  To give it a mermaid-ish feeling, I didn't a simple blue and pink gradient using Face of Australia Calypso Bay frosted polishes.  I then applied top coat and dipped each nail into some pink iridescent glitter.  Even with top coat applied, it was a very textured finish and super sparkly, but holy sh1t did I get glitter everywhere!

For the shell nail, I just just white gel polish to build up some ridges. I added a gold star fish charm from the Born Pretty store at the top of the nail.

  3. I think it turned out lovely! The whiteness of the accent nail reminds me of a sea shell!
