Here is an awesome article By Sarah Ferguson For Dailymail.com about using layers of acrylic to create an aquarium design on the nails! Yep, you heard me right! An aquarium! No live fish though, but preserved flowers and dead baby scorpions aren’t out of the question as decorations for these other innovative and unusual designs geared toward the Zodiac.
Here is what she has to say:
We’re less than one month into the new year and we’ve already discovered a nail art trend that’s going to be seriously difficult to top: Aquarium nails.
The inventive manicure features glitter that moves around in a layer of water ( It’s better to use oil!) between two fake nails when shaken.
The trend has caught our eye at the perfect time given that it’s officially Aquarius season (January 20 – February 18) and the zodiac sign’s symbol is the water-carrier.
But if you don’t happen to be an Aquarius, there’s no reason to get jealous.
