Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Today is already Day 29 of the 31 DAY NAIL ART CHALLENGE! Can you believe it?! I've been looking forward to this day, though I think it is sort of random! I have seen people do all sorts of things for this theme in the past...ghosts, Halloween themed, yada yada yada. I decided to do an alien mani! I love aliens! I'm sort of hooked on the H2 show Ancient Aliens...don't judge. It's legit! =)
I started with a base of Milani White On The Spot to apply my nail art over. I used Zoya Trixie, Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red, and It's so Easy Stripe Rite white for my flying saucer. Cult Nails Feel Me Up created the abduction beam, and China Glaze I'm With The Life Guard and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme to make my little aliens! The grass is Orly Meet Me Under The Mistletoe and the background and thumb were done in Black Creme, CND Effects Sapphire Sparkle, CND Effects Crimson Sparkle, and CND Effects Raspberry Sparkle. I finished off with one coat of Out the Door and then a thick coat of NYC top coat. I did this with my medium length striping brush, dotting tool, and cosmetic sponges.
I am LOVING this! I'll admit it, I'm quite proud! It's the first time I've done 1) free-hand nail art of a scene like this and 2) nail art that spreads across multiple nails. I know it's simple, but I love it. Aliens!!!
I've been a CND Effects kick lately too. Sponging them over black is just too good. I think my little green men are impressed with the sparkly amazingness! I am happy with this mani...I think it will help me build more confidence to try more scene nail art manicures like this!
So head on over to Sincerely Stephanie and check out what she came up with for today! ONLY ONE MORE DAY LEFT STEPH, then we get to recreate our favorites! It's such a difficult choice because Stephanie has made some amazing nail art manicures. I know I'll be inspired by her manis from the last month for quite some time.
