Colorful Crab Nail Art

I have mixed feelings about these nails. I like how colorful they look and how I was able to mix some of the sheer polishes, but overall the design is a mess. I was trying to do the challenge prompt for ‘crab’ but the crabs look more like blobs. The star studs are cute though, and they gave me an idea for a 4th of July design.

I used OPI Color Paints in Primarily Yellow, Magenta Muse, Landscape Artist, and Indigo Motif and OPI Sheer Tints Don’t Violet Me Down to mix the colors for the background. I like how it gives it a jelly look. I painted the crabs with Color Club Apollo Star and added the blue glitter accent on the middle nail with Sinful Colors Nail Junkie.

    Okay, so I’m going to be honest here. Admittedly I didn’t see the crabs until I looked for them, and yeah maybe they haven’t turned out to look like the most crabbiest of crabs, but I really like these nails! I love the mish mash of textures and colours and opacity – it’s turned out super cool!

      Thanks! Yeah, I think ignoring the crab part, I do like the nail art overall, especially the colors and how the stars look. I’ve really been feeling mixing jelly/sheer polishes lately. Maybe I’ll try another crab design in the future lol
