Guest Post by Colour Coated: Fish Scale Nails

Please enjoy this guest post by my friend Jasmine from Colour Coated!
Hey Peeps!
First off I have to say that I'm beyond excited to be doing this guest post for Kellie! I'm pretty sure that I've spent hours drooling over pictures of her gorgeous nails, so I felt totally honored (and a little nervous...ok, a lot nervous) when she asked me to do it.
After spending time debating with myself about what I'd choose to post, I decided to do something fun and colorful. I'm severely limited when it comes to doing nail art, but my nifty little dotting tool is like a magic wand that makes it look like I have a little bit of skill, so I decided to bust it out.
My inspiration was a book that I read in elementary school called The Rainbow Fish. I was always obsessed with the cover of the book because the fish on it has some awesome holo/glitter scales. Check it out:
To try to recreate the look of the rainbow fish I painted my nails with 2 coats of Orly Snowcone, then I dotted on OPI Jade is The New Black, NOPI Midnight Snowfall, Jesse's Girl Wild Thing, Zoya Breezi, and Nfu Oh 61 (for the holo scales of course!). Peep it:

So what do you guys think? Do you see the resemblance?
I hope you guys like this mani, and a million thanks to Kellie for being so lovely and letting me share it with all of you! :)

I love this dainty dotty nail art! I fail at most nail art but this looks like something even I could pull off! Thanks so much for sharing Jasmine!
