Ryūjin symbolizes the power of the ocean and lives in a coral palace under the sea. He controls the tides with magical tide jewels, which I've symbolized on my ring and pinkie nails. The base of my manicure is Pahlish Toxic and Timeless version II (press sample*) (see swatches of this beautiful polish here). On my first two fingers I did some mix-metal stamping of an oversized scale-type pattern. I dabbed some different Essie Chromes onto the plate before scraping. It wasn't as dramatic as I had hoped, but still fun to mix it up!
