Fishies in the sea

 Difficulty: 5-6 / intermediate
You will need:
- medium or dark blue
-  light blue
-two colors (not blue) for the fish, preferably not purple or dark green 
- white
- black 
- about two toothpicks 
          First of all, I would like to warn you against using a medium or dark purple for one some of the fish like I did. It doesn't show up well against the medium to dark blue that you use as the sea. I'd also like to say that I am doing instructions for the pedicure. If you want to do a manicure with these adorable little cartoon fishies, just put one fish on the nail. Now, to start off, paint about 3/4 of the biggest nail on your foot a dark or a medium blue, about the color of a blue ocean from the bottom up. while this dries, paint your other toenails in the two colors you will use for your fish, alternating the colors (1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd). then, on the big toenail, paint the tip of the nail light blue for the sky. then, for the first fish, paint an oval shape somewhere around the middle of the ocean part of the nail. then use a tooth pick to draw two little touching pointy triangle like lines coming out of the back of the fish for the tail. now draw a part of a fish in your other fish color on one of the bottom corners of the nail like I did in the picture. You Can add another in the other corner, in a slightly different place than the last if you like. Now time for the hardest part of this whole thing......The eyes. These are hard for me to do because it's a bit difficult to get them the right size. Start by putting a white oval in the front of the fish with a toothpick. Then in the fish on the corner, draw another white oval. Now get a TINY dot of black on the other end of the toothpick, and put a small dot of black inside the white oval.  do the same for the other eye. Now, For the last step(which is optional), add two thin curved lines whose ends touch with a toothpick for a seagull in one of the top corners. Now your done!  Hope you like it!
