I have always loved dophins, and most people get that. They can understand why I find them incredible. With their beauty, intelligence, and power it is not hard to find them appealing. My other favorite animal however, people usually are a bit more perplexed by. Manatees are gentle and sweet. They choose to live in two worlds, salt water and fresh water. They are also very intelligent. On a whole they are solitary creatures except when mating or when the mother cares for her calf.
I can't say which I like more manatees or dolphins. I have a dolphin on another manicure later this month and I thought I should do both of my favorites. I looked to see if anyone else had attempted a manatee manicure, but I didn't find any, so this is completely my own. I hope you like it and that you can tell what it is.
This manicure called for a lot of blending and mixing. I used China Glaze Liquid Leather, Recycle, Concrete Catwalk, and Pelican Gray and mixed them in different varieties to get the darks and lights. I used Immortal on all my other nails.
It was a bit hard to not take a lot of pictures. I am really proud of this little guy. I looked at pictures and just went with it. If you can see anyway to improve on him, please let me know. I want to do this again and hope I will get better at him.
All the other participants deserve a look at their wild nails, so don't forget to check them out!
