Merlion nail art for Singapore

Country no. 17 in the Where In The World Challenge which happens to be Singapore.

I've chosen to make a nail art of their national animal; Merlion which simply explained is a mythical animal with a lions head and a fish body. My inspiration image and more info can be found here. At least I learned something new, and I decided to make an accent nail and match it up with a hot pink texture polish. Quite simple nail art but I think the Merlion look kinda cute. :)

Polishes used:
China Glaze - Bumps And Grinds
China Glaze - Beach Cruise-R
HM - Blue My Mind
L.A. Colors Art Deco - Sky Blue
Jordana Pop Art - Contemporary White

Jordana Pop Art -Black Mark

What do you think? Had you heard about Merlions before this?


  1. Vilken härlig manikyr! Älskat den något oväntade färgkombinationen. Jag skulle dock inte kunnat gissa att det var ett merlion, jag ser bara den tråkiga grå statyn för mig när jag hör det ordet.

    1. Tack! Ja, jag ville göra något annorlunda :D Haha, ja, den är ju iofs inte så himla rolig ;)

  2. Super cute dear Gelic, I love your Merlion and the textured China Glaze looks awesome <3

  3. Men så gullig! Så underbar tolkning :)

  4. Lejonhuvud och fiskkropp? Man kan ju undra vad de hade stoppat i sig när de kom på den kombinationen;)

    1. Haha, ja det kan man ju fråga sig men lite kul är det allt ;)

  5. Vad duktig du är på att måla, det blev ju jättebra!

    1. Tack, det var dock sjukt pilligt. Dessutom sabbade jag det på första försöket(!) Brukar aldrig vara klumpig så sett men lyckades göra om det hela.

  6. It's really fun. I loved the texture and the carton.

    1. You have an award on my blog "todo para ponerte divina de la muerte" or todounitas. Thanks for following me.

    2. Thank you! Both for the comment and for the award! :D

  7. So cute! I've never heard of this before.

    1. Thanks! Me neither, I had missed it before this. :P
