Born Pretty Store Destiny Fairy & mermaid nail art

*Nothing to disclose

Ages ago (July!) I did a big Born Pretty Store purchase and picked up one of the duochrome flakie polishes I’d been seeing everywhere. I really like the effect of this polish, but I didn’t pick up its partner (called Eternal Life) as that was just a straight up duochrome and I have A LOT of those.

The polish I bought is called Destiny Fairy and it’s a stunner. It’s a clear base with purple-to-green shifting glitter, so delicate that they’re pretty much flakies. I decided to pop mine over white undies (I forgot the polish! I wore this yonks ago!) so you can see some of the individual bits. I really like this look, but you could get full opacity with this polish in about two or three coats. What you see here is two coats; the second coat I carefully chose where to dab the polish. Then I gave it a top coat of Seche Vite. It didn’t eat the top coat.

Now, this is my attempt at some mermaid-inspired nail art. I wore it a while ago but I remember really liking it when I did. I used a wavy line image and stamped that onto my nails and then applied rhinestones to my middle finger and index finger. I thought it looked somewhat fishy with the base of Destiny Fairy but didn’t want to call it fish fingers so mermaid nail art it is.

What are your thoughts on Destiny Fairy? Do you like seeing the white undies or do you prefer full coverage? Looking at the full coverage pics on the Born Pretty listing, I do prefer how I’ve done it, if I do say so myself. Thanks for reading!
