Lightning Storm Nails

Hello loves. Happy Saturday. I want to be out in the sun today but I am still ill :( so I have to stay home and take it easy. I'm hoping if I spend the weekend resting then I will be better by Monday. 

In the UK recently we've had quite a lot of thunder and lightning (more so last week than this week). I hate thunder and lightning - I am a huge baby - but I decided to turn the storms into a positive and do some nails inspired by them instead of hiding from them like I normally do. After all as scary as I find it, lightning can still be very beautiful. 

Read on after the jump for full details.

I started with a base of W7 - Black.

I then sponged on a few different purples and pinks to create my stormy sky, in a similar style to a galaxy manicure. The colours I used were Avon - Decadence, Nicole by OPI - Back To Reality... TV, Barry M - Dragonfruit and Essie - Splash of Grenadine.

Finally using a detail brush I added on the lightning with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White

I was really happy with these, they definitely have a stormy feel to them and I was pleased with the lightning especially.

I hope you like them, let me know what you think below.

See you soon!
