Good morning, dear readers, and happy Tuesday! If you've been following me for awhile, I'm sure you've noticed I've been incorporating nail art into my blog a lot recently. I don't often have a lot of time so I am generally limited to fairly quick designs, and occasionally I just cannot decide how I want to paint my nails. After a post this summer when I featured Literary Lacquers Salt and Sweetness with my awesome turtle charm, I decided I really needed to have a Turtle Tuesday post. To celebrate my love of sea turtles, I decided that I would have a Turtle Tuesday post every Tuesday this month. Let's just pretend I didn't miss last Tuesday. I *might* have been a little busy and sleep deprived with a newborn then, lol! Rather than me continue to ramble on like a crazy person, let's get to my first Turtle Tuesday!
To start off my nail art look, I used Stranger Miracles by Literary Lacquers. I originally chose this shade because it was inspired by the sea turtle. It was created as part of the August 2014 "Sea Wonders" themed Holo Grail Box. Here we are in August a whole year later! I'm going to pretend it was intentional and not an accident that it worked out so perfectly. ;)
I then added a "spotted" layer of Zoya Purity by putting a drop on top of water as if I were water marbeling, spritzing alcohol onto the polish, and then dipping my nails into the polish. I then used Zoya Willa on different sea turtle patterns found on the MoYou London Explorer plate #16.
The Zoya white layer ended up a little thicker than I originally wanted, but I really dig this final look!
I hope you have enjoyed my first Turtle Tuesday post! I'll have another one up next week!
Until next time, have a wonderful day!
