My shark mani using TarasTalons, Quirk, Liquitex basics paint and more!

Hi! Yesterday I spent the morning doing my nails (which I'll show you today) and the afternoon catching up on Emmerdale and writing, I hope you had a great day too!

So, my current mani is a shark themed mani! I did this because I've been meaning to do a shark mani since I bought a shark themed polish ages ago and I've been seeing loads of shark manis everywhere so though I'd join in! 

What I used in todays blog post
Base coat - OPI matte nail envy
Colour coats - TarasTalons dark blue holo polish (unnamed prototype)
Polish used over the TarasTalons polish on middle and pinkie fingers - Quirk 'Sharkie'
Top coat - Duri rejuvacote
Nail art - Liquitex basics acrylic paints in white, red, black, grey and light blue

I'll put what I did step by step here first, then I'll show you the pictures of my mani :)

I applied base coat and two coats of TarasTalons holo polish on all of my nails. 

I then applied two coats of Quirk 'Sharkie' on my middle and pinkie nails.

On my index finger I used grey paint mixed with a little light blue and painted a round/rounded fat triangle on the bottom of my nail. I then used the black paint to paint a smaller one in the middle. I also used the black paint to dot on two eyes. I used white paint to paint on long jagged teeth. I then used red paint to paint on some spatters of blood!

On my ring finger, I painted black paint over my nail. I then used white paint to paint on long jagged teeth and red to dot on blood spatter!

I finished the whole mani with a coat of top coat!
