Magical Rainbow Fish

Hello there guys!! Hope you are having a nice day. I just want to say that I watched Saving Mr. Banks and The King's Speech recently, and they are brilliant. I did not expect to love The King's Speech as much as I did, it's incredible and I think everyone should watch it.
I posted my new year's nails on the 30th and on new year's day and I really did intend for them to be my new year's manicure. But then I decided to change up my nails on new year's eve. And this is one of the manicures I did, I kind of loved this manicure and I'm glad I went into the new year with awesome nails (not meaning to be narcissistic :/). Yeah this is why I love the holidays, I can get a ton of posts up so even 8 days after new year's I have posts to fill in-between.

It's a lil' fishy design!! But it has the blue, purple, pink combo that gives a "magical" effect (let's pretend), I really like the fish, they look nice. The scale nails were originally big fat fails, I thought I could do scales with placed glitter alone, but fail I wasn't placing the glitter in the right place and the green holographic glitter was too similar to the base. Yay for black outlining that saved the scales. They were mad sparkly, I can always support mad sparkly.

For the fish I got help from Mr. Candiipants's Koi design, didn't mean to do so many Mr. Candiipants designs but the koi were very helpful for this. I painted a white base then dabbed all the colours onto the fish then did black detailing.

Base: M&S - Peacock and M&S - Light Mix
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Silver and green placed glitter: Barry M - Hologram Hexograms and Orly - Go Deeper
White: Barry M - Matt White and Lovely Me:Ex - White for the base
Blues, purples and pinks of the fish: Color Club - Sky High, Barry M - Blue Moon, OPI - Get Your Number, M&S - Ultraviolet, OPI - Last Friday Night, Barry M - Berry Ice Cream, OPI - Plum & Get It, Color Club - Wing Fling, Rimmel - Disco Ball and OPI -
Pretty sure I mentioned every polish used, normally I know but it was a bit of a dab fest and all the colours blended and bam I'm not sure about the polishes I used. But I think I named them all. Though I'm really the only one who cares haha.

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day!!! :)
