Skyline nail art

Day 184's prompt is to make something with your town's skyline or another city's. I based my design off a bunch of other nail artists ideas and some of my own stuff. I did a subtle gradient with two blues and did the buildings over the top of that.





Here's the polishes I used:

Pink frosted animal cracker nails


I had this idea a week ago but I wanted to save it for pink Wednesday since it's so pink.
I started with a base of white on some nails and pink on the others. Then I dotted blue, light blue, yellow, red, pink, purple, and white over everything.




I had some crackers earlier this week (that's where I got the idea) but I had eaten them all before I got around to doing the nails! A friend was super nice and bought me some replacement crackers yesterday so I could take pictures. I'm happy that I could take pictures holding them, I think it helps the nails come across clearer.



Here's the polishes I used:
Wet n wild wild shine clear nail protector,
Wet n wild wild shine french white creme,
Wet n wild wild shine lavender creme,
L.A colors art deco dark purple,
L.A colors color craze shock,
Pure ice french kiss,
Orly razzle,
N.Y.C in a new york minute water street blue,
and a dotting tool.

Black stork nails

Day 178's prompt is to use the world of birds as inspiration. I stamped black storks over a pink chrome polish. This is the first time I've used a nail polish pen, and I'm liking it so far. The only problem I can find with it is that it's hard to get the polish flowing after it's dried up.

My knight in shining armor

Day 166's prompt is to make a piece or suit of armor. I painted my nails with a knight's helmet and a sword. I googled knight nail art for ideas, but apparently no one has done knight nails before. I found a line drawing of a suit of armor and used that to base my design off of.
I really like how it came out, I wasn't sure if my helmet would turn out recognizable or not, but it came out really well in my opinion.
