Ursula ... The Sea Witch

Hi everyone!!  Today is my birthday!  YAY!!  This isn't the mani I'm rocking today.  (You'll have to wait until next week to see that one.)  Just like most of you, I adore all things Disney!  For some reason, I always seem to identify with the villains, rather than the heroes.  But, if you knew me, you wouldn't find that at all surprising.  So, I thought I'd go with a little Ursula inspiration today!


I started off with two coats of Emily de Molly It's Complicated on my index and pinky fingers, and two coats of OPI Funky Dunky on my middle and ring fingers.  I followed with one coat of SV.


One my middle finger, I added one coat of Funky Fingers Teal Scales, a glittering dark teal crackle.  This is, in my opinion, one of the few crackle polishes worth owning.  It's freaking gorgeous.  I chose this one as a little nod to Flotsam & Jetsam.


I created a tentacle design on my ring finger.  You can see the step by step version of this in the gif at the end of the post.  


I paired my striping brush with Sinful Colors Black on Black and painted on the curved tentacles.


Next, I used my striping brush again with China Glaze Tart-y for the Party to fill in part of the tentacles.


I used my dotting tools with OPI Funky Dunky, China Glaze Get Outta My Space, and China Glaze IDK for the suction cup details.  I used a small striping brush with IDK for a little bit of detailing on the tentacles as well.


I also added a Suds n Stickers flash design decal to my pinky nail.  The color matched Funky Dunky perfectly!  I finished with one coat of SV.


I hope you enjoyed today's mani as much as I enjoyed creating it!!  Happy Painting!
