Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? I had a lovely birthday, thank you so much for all the kind messages! Today we're putting the Christmas tree up - Yay, I've been waiting for this!
Today I have a manicure that I think looks a little weird, I don't really know why I tried it when I actually thought I wouldn't be able to do it, haha...uh.. Well I have it a go, that's all I can say.
Here is my attempt at a Northern Lights sky. Why didn't I add snow?! This would have been so much better with snow!
For this manicure I began with my favorite base coat, OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dried I applied two coats of Barry M's 'White' to create my gradient. I added some glue around my nails so I could easily peel off any mess left behind from my gradient. I then created my gradient using Catrice's 'Blurred Limes', Barry M's 'Damson' and Tip Tops Nail...I forgot the colour, forgive me! I then created everything else with my acrylic paints and bamboo brush and added a little sparkle from OPI's 'Snowflakes In The Air' for a finishing touch. As usual I sealed everything in with my Catrice 'Gel Effect' top coat.
This was my first time trying to do something like a reflection on water, I wouldn't say it was maybe the best attempt I could have done but I think it came out fairly 'ok'?
What do you think of my Northern Lights? Have you tried painting reflections before?
Have a wonderful weekend!
