What's Up Nails Mermaid scales vinyls

Hello everyone!

 Today I have a mermaid scale mani to share with you all. I received some sample vinyls from What's Up Nails to review. I got to choose some vinyls and one set I chose were the scales! I usually turn to stamping for my mermaid-y type manicures so I thought vinyls would be nice to try also.
 For this mani I started off with a base of FingerPaints Patent Black. And for my scale colors I chose three polishes from the China Glaze Crinkled Chromes. Though they're sort of similar and it really looks like two shades I promise there's three. "Crush, crush baby" "Don't be foiled" and "Aluminate"
What's up nails vinyls were super easy to use for me. I didn't have to weed (remove the inner pieces) at all with this sheet. I've heard others haven't been as lucky, but I'm wondering if it's just hit or miss. I am very  pleased with how crisp my lines stayed even though I used a weird textured polish. 
I remember when this line came out and it was either love them or hate them. I have to say for this mani I love them. I picked my set up at my local Ross and I'm super happy that I did! What do you think? Would you wear this mani? I promise I won't be hurt if you wouldn't. I know  texture isn't everyone's cup of tea but let me know down below!

 Vinyls from What's up nails cost $4.75 a sheet and come in many styles. They also stock other nail art and nail accessories. Which can all be found here: Shop What's up nails


Until next time! 
Xo, Lo

  3. I love the mani, your lines are so crisp! Texture isn't for me though, I can ocassionally wear a Zoya Pixiedust on an accent nail but even then only for a short time! ­čśŐ

  4. I love this mani! I have had major trouble with almost all the nail vinyls I purchased from What's Up Nails in regards to weeding, though. :( Tried from all sides as well. Maybe I got bad sheets.

    1. These were no issue but the moroccan sheet i received is the worst ever. I can not for the life of me get them to weed themselves. :(
