I’ve had this nail art painted for nearly a week, but I just haven’t felt like writing lately. Still, it’s more than time to share this nail art that helped me transition from a month of mermaids to a month of unicorns (Junicorn). I bring you a mermicorn.
Okay, I ran out of mermicorns so now we’ve got a narwhal. It’s much easier to find stamping images of these critters as opposed to mermicorns. Although I did end up painting freehand narwhales in 2017.
Did you know they finally figured out what narwhals use their horns for? Basically the narwhal stealths up to its next meal and gives it a little love tap to stun its prey. I can relate. It’s better when your food doesn’t fight back. 😆

Once again I’m using a fabulous glow in the dark polish from Familiar Polish because it just makes everything more fun. There’s so much glow in the dark powder in the polish that it is a little gritty, but that’s the price for such a strong glow. I patted down the polish with my finger to smooth it out in a few places because the large hex glitters made it even harder to get everything smooth. This one didn’t work as well with a blacklight as you can see below, but not many people are around blacklights very often so the glow from exposure to regular lights is the most important thing and it’s great.
Since this was a low-contrast detailed mani, it doesn’t show up the best at a distance. Ah, well. I’m the one that spends the most time staring at my nails anyway. 😂
Until next time, friends! 🙋♀️
