Summer lovin' nails

I created these nails as my entry in Twinkle Twinkles  'Summer of Color 2' challenge, the colour scheme this week was luscious- looking 'rainbow sherbet icecream' (oranges/pinks and a hint of white) I really liked the whole idea behind the challenge and was soo happy to get invited over, I couldn't wait to get started ..the photo of the rainbow sherbet ice cream looked this a real flavour? I hope so...I want it!!

Anyways I decided to use the gorgeous colour scheme to make a glowing summer sunset sky scene.. I like it a lot, I loved playing with blending all these pinks and oranges together ^_^  I added pearly white clouds and gold details for the sun light shining through. I also added some ultra fine loose glitter in pink and orange for that extra bit of sunset magic.

I used so many different polishes in the creation of this look ^_^ starting with a really pale buff pink base and just building up gradually with sponging technique until I got into the more vibrant and beautiful neon shades in my collection (my favourites).
I was happy with the thumbs, I used a shimmery orange polish for a highlight in some of the sponging and it really works with the glitter for a sunset glow-y look. Doing the Summer of Color challenge really encouraged me to experiment with the shades and adding depth with shimmers and metallics and the pearl white in the clouds to come up with the finished project so thanks for the inspiration Kristen!
I didn't use all of these polishes, I just pulled out all the ones that fitted the colour scheme and got experimenting from there...I prob used about half ^_^ but I just quite liked the pic. 
Hope you like the nails and head over to Twinkles blog to find out the full details of her inspired challenge and look at other bloggers art.. it's really cool because everybody is using the media of their own choice so there's so much variation to see!
Back soon with some more nails, I have another post ready to go up that was inspired by one of my lovely followers comments! Thanks for reading x

  1. Wow, those nails are fabulous - I just love how the colours are so beautifully blended (surely that's not done with the brush that comes with each pot of polish is it?). Each one is such a pretty little work of art - what a great idea for the challenge.
