NIGHT SKY

I wanted to try something a little different and experiment with some metallics so I took some inspiration from the necklace my grandmother gave me and decided to do a night sky theme. I decided to use some star nail stickers for this to add more dimension and, well, I'm just not that skilled yet.

 I prepped my nail with my new Sally Hansen hardener which I got because I've been having a severe case of nail peeling and cracking. I then applied my Canmake 14 (any white will do, although I would have preferred more of  a pearly colour).

 I originally used those curve guidance stickers or whatever it is you call them but it peeled some of the polish off so when I moved onto my index finger I decided to draw a guideline with my metallic lapis colour (Pa aa76) and then filled the rest of my nail in. I skipped this step for my ring and index fingers and instead just coloured them all blue. I then used a gold colour to line over where the two colours meet and another line just above that.

  Once everything was relatively dry, I went ahead and added a few star stickers and silver dots. I may have gone a bit overboard with it but oh hell I had fun. I think I wanna try something slightly princess-y and pink next time or perhaps nautical but with pastel colours.
