I bet you didn’t know there was a World Turtle Day. I didn’t either until a couple weeks ago when I saw it posted on one of the Turtle Rescue pages I follow on facebook. I knew immediately I wanted to do some turtle nail art and started hunting for all the turtle stamping plates I could find. And this is the mani I came up with.
- Different Dimensions Tom Piper
- Moonflower Polish Verde
- Bundle Monster Gold Stamping Polish
- Painted Polish Midnight Mischief
- MoYou London Exlporer 16
- MoYou London Animal 09
- Lina Stamping Make Your Mark 04
I started with 2 coats of Different Dimensions Tom Piper. Using Moonflower Polish Verde I stamped a wavy spotted image from Lina Make Your Mark 04, this was to the give the base some extra dimension and a wavy water feeling. It kind of got lost in the holo, but it showed up great in the shade. I double stamped all the turtles, first with Bundle Monster Gold Stamping Polish then with Painted Polish Midnight Mischief. All of the single turtles are from the MoYou London Explorer plate, this plate is fantastic with so many great turtle images. Then on my ring finger I used an image from MoYou London Animal 09 plate, this is a fun plate with all sorts of cute creatures!
I was very pleased with how this look came together and I wore until it was literally chipping off my nails. Maybe by next year I will have a real turtle (a large backyard tortoise to be exact) rather than just figurines, statues, and nail art. Did you know its illegal now in most states to own small turtles? Some states allow turtles that are larger than 4″ though, and luckily I live in one of those states!
