Sunset Dolphin NOTD

*this design was inspired by cutepolish*

Dolphins are something I adore. They're beautiful, intelligent creatures that I've always liked and I fulfilled my dream of swimming with dolphins in Florida when I was 11!

Anyway, back to the nails. I think these are rather cute.

I began by applying a layer of OPI Dim Sum Plum over my nails.

Then using a make up sponge, I used one stripe of OPI Dim Sum Plum, then one stripe of Models Own Hedkandi Hedonist in the middle and then one stripe of Topship Nails in Bee's Knees at the bottom. I then sponged each nail using this so get a sunset gradient effect.

I then used my Inglot Nail Art Enamel Polish in 036 Black to draw the dolphins. I used the striper brush end to draw a banana like body, then added the flipper, dorsal fin and tail flukes. I think two dolphins per hand is enough as you get statement nails.

Then, being me, I needed some glitter so I used GOSH Magic Star to add a sheer holographic shimmer.

To finish off, I applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

What do you think of these dolphins??

Hope you try them out - a lot easier than you think :D

Love love and dolphinlove!!
