Freehand Star Constellations Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you've had a wonderful and relaxing weekend – or even a long weekend if you are in the UK. I've been working quite a lot this past week (looking forward to a day off tomorrow!) which has been really nice. I have to say I am so happy with the girls I work with, they really are such a lovely bunch. I enjoy my job but when everyone in your work place is so kind and wonderful it makes a job even better, I think!

On Saturday I managed to raise over £40 for breast cancer in the space of an hour and a half to two hours which isn't bad when your standing by the store entrance. Some people do look like you've just asked them for rabies so I was pleased with the result and wish I could have done it for longer.

Today's nail art was a little trial and error, you know how I love painting skies, be it daytime or night time but I wanted to try something a little different with my background. I think it turned out pretty interesting!

For this design I began with my trusty OPI Nail Envy base coat and once dried I applied two coats of ORLY's Breathable nail polish in 'Good Karma'. Since the Breathable nail polish formlar is so amazing and dries incredibly fast I was ready to paint in no time. For the background I used a whole mixture of metallic acrylic paints, I painted them on in lines, sort of.

I then used my beloved Pure Color brush in size 10 for all the smaller and finer details. To seal the design in I used two coats of Pro-FX top coat and eventually added Barry M's matte top coat for a beautiful and smooth effect.

I kinda like how this design turned out. It's different. Different isn't always bad. I kinda wish I had made the constellations into some kind of shape though, maybe a heart or something might have been cute.

What do you guys think of my starry constellation nail art? Would you wear a sky scene on your nails?

Have an amazing day my loves, thank you so much for stopping by. I'll catch you again on Thursday for some more nail art fun.
