This is a close up of a Map Puffer Fish. Their patterns can vary a bit in color but this was my favorite. It's got a 70s vibe to it, I think. Anyway, I just thought this would be the coolest nail art so I jumped right in.
This design took a little while to accomplish but was really quite easy. You can't tell in the photo but the base is actually a VERY subtle gradient of Sally Hansen Black Heart and Julep Olivia. I used a dotting tool to create the...lines?...stripes?...squiggles?...in Sally Hansen Hard to Get. Then, I used a fine striping brush to outline the squiggles in Wet n Wild D'oh! and that's it!
I love the way this turned out. It's very eye-catching and hubby was pretty impressed too.
