Easy Pond Manicure

I’ve seen this manicure floating around all over the place and I love it so I wanted to try it out myself. Turns out its super awesome and super easy to do. All you need is a jelly formula polish, a lighter colored polish, and a dotting tool.

These are the polishes I used. Wet n Wild Gyp-Sea Green (jelly), Essie Marshmallow, and Essie Turquoise and Caicos. If you have ever seen or done a jelly sandwich mani its pretty much the same idea without the glitter. Just start with your favorite base coat to help your polish stick to your nails better and prevent staining. I used Orly Bonder base coat.

Then I applied a thin layer of my jelly polish and then I dotted some of the other colors over top. I didn’t do too many at first because I didn’t want it to look over crowded. Then another layer of polish followed by dots and then a top layer of jelly polish. I let the layers dry in between coats and then I applied my top coat. I used Seche Vite quick drying top coat. It gives your nails a glass like shine…super nice. This is the finished product.

I think it looks really cool and there’s endless possibilities to colors and patterns that you can make. I’ve seen it done with flowers instead of dots which looks really nice too. This mani is definitely worth a try even you aren’t really into nail art because it’s so easy to do! Let me know what you think below in the comments and if you’ve tried this and what combinations you used! I’d love to hear from you.
