Polish Days time of the month again and this month, the theme is Nature.
Every time I thought about this theme, Poison Ivy kept popping in my, the DC villain rather than the plant, and I just couldn’t think of what to do.
Then I thought about my favourite types of weather. I love storms. Proper thunder and lightning storms, we haven’t had a decent storm round here for a long time. So I decided to do lightning nails.
This is how it turned out. At first I didn’t like them but I have grown to love them as the day went on.
I really like the sponging of colours on the background.
To do this, I used W7 Black as the base.
I didn’t have the right colour of purple for the job so I mixed a little bit of Collection Hot looks Parma Violets and a bit of Barry M Matt White to make a lighter purple, I sponged this on.
Then I sponged on tiny bits of Rimmel 60 Pulsating and Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream,
Then to ‘meld’ the colours together I added 2True Shade no.2, which looks white in the bottle but is clear when applied and has little bits of glitter in it.
Then I added the lightning on using Barry M Matt White and a dotting tool.
Lastly, I added a coat of Seche Vite topcoat.
Although not perfect, I think the result is really pretty, it’s a shame I couldn’t catch the sparkle of the little bits of glitter in the pictures. I might keep these on for a while. It’s also made me want to try some galaxy nails. Maybe soon.
Hope you like these.
