Coral Cloud Limited Edition Tail

Dress up your coral tail with nails of the same hue, accented with a pop of gold! The index finger makes an ideal choice for a noticeable splash of color. Paint it a solid shade of gold, then transition to a scale pattern on the next finger over a light coral hue for visual interest. Finish your mermaid nails with solid coral tones for an immaculate look.

Get that glitter polish out! The galaxy trend is here to stay—at least for the time being, and we love this glamorous take on glitter nails bookended by solid colors. Deep purple and blue tones full of sparkles set the scene for an out-of-this-world look in gradient shades of color.

Ombre tails are still trending in the mermaid world, and you can add an unexpected twist to your nail design with half-moon nail art. Decide which color you’d like to highlight the most—coral or mint—then apply a solid layer to the middle finger. Now you can add those fine touches of color to the rest of the nail tips, and don’t forget to create your half-moon design just above the cuticle of your ring fingers!
