Glow in the dark city skyline nail art
Who needs more glow in the dark nail art? Me, me, me!!! So I've been walking around with this idea for a while now... that's how it goes with most of my nail designs. I get an idea, my head becomes an incubator for the idea to grow in, it gets shape, color, materials, and then finally it gets to be born... onto my nails... okay that's gross :-p But that's how it works! I also have a video tutorial on how to make this design, so click to see more!
I Gleam In Pink, Krypton-Brite, Solar Power & Infrared, as well as Parrot Polish Linckia. The gradient-making-process made the between colors, which is how I got 7 colors with only 5 polishes. Plus they glow in the dark like CRAZY!!!
I painted the buildings with black acrylic paint and my Basic One Gold detail brush from Christrio Scotland and I topped it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat (I buy this from Hypnotic Polish).
Time for the gradient! Paint stripes of your chosen colors on the sponge, making them overlap a bit, and gently roll the sponge over your nail to make the gradient. This might take some practice to get a smooth result! When you've achieved a nice look, remove the latex and put top coat on your gradient nails.
