Fish Bones + Tutorial

Hey everyone! Sorry for the gap in posting, I'm becoming an awful blogger and I hate myself for it. Today's post is another tutorial I did for Licila using Rococo - Flower Child, the gorgeous yellow that so many of you drooled over in my Rococo swatch post, and also Rococo - Hip-Hop, with the additional use of Barry M nail art pens, as you shall see in the tutorial. This design was inspired by a picture I saw on WAH Nails Instagram a few months ago, if you dig around you can probably still find it.

Step 1: Paint your nails yellow
Step 2: Do a gradient using a make-up sponge, see Sammy's tutorial here if you're unsure how to do gradients
Step 3: Using a black Barry M nail art pen, draw the outline of the fish. Start with the head by drawing a triangle, and then do the backbone coming down, then draw the fins, and then add the ribs
Step 4: Using white polish and a thin brush, colour in the fins and the head
Step 5: Using a black Barry M nail art pen draw the eye of the fish
Step 6: Finish off with a topcoat to seal in your design, and you’re done!
