To get into the Shark Week spirit, I created a themed manicure. Adding to the already over 470 species of this cartilaginous fish, please welcome the Great Fingernail Shark to the bunch. I decided to play with the ever-so-trendy accent nail and really make the shark ~*POP!*~
First, choose your shark color. I mixed a few different polishes to get the color I wanted since I didn’t have it on hand. Choose a more muted color for the rest of your nails. Mine is a bit of a mauve-y gray.
After painting your accent nail some shade of blue, create a mouth with a red triangle on the tip of the nail. Use a dotter tool or a toothpick to outline the mouth and create teeth once the red polish has dried.
To make the eye noticeable, I dotted some black on top of a larger dot of white. To finish the design, add gills beneath the eye.
To create a tidal wave nail, I first dotted the design with white polish to get an idea of the shape of the wave. I added additional dots in blue along with stripes in blue and white.
Voila! Enjoy the rest of Shark Week!
