The Moon Walkers - Freehand

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? I hope your having a great week so far :) Everything here is pretty much as usual... which means lots of tea and nail painting once I get all my chores done, nice! Today's nail art was inspired by a picture I saw and fell in love with on Pinterest. I don't know much about the illustration but please check it out *here* - I love the rain effect and I just find this image so mesmerizing! So of course I had to take on the challenge of creating it into nail art.

For this manicure I used two coats of Barry M's 'Gold Foil' and created a gradient using Sally Hansen's 'Resurrection'. I then attempted to create a curved one stroke effect using a light yellow and gold combination to give a little glow affect around the moon. Everything else was done freehand with my Oumaxi acrylic paints and my trust Bamboo brush.

I only really have a couple of things to pick at with this manicure... I wish my black looked smoother and less jagged and that my cuticles looked tidier, the gold was a pain to clean up as it left a metallic sparkle everywhere. But that said I'm quite happy with this and I hope I did the inspiration picture justice!

What do you think of this nail art? Have you ever had moon themed nails?

Have a beautiful day!
