My Sponged Night Sky!

Hello All! 

I hope you are all having a good week? 

Today's mani, is something that I am pretty proud of actually. This is actually inspired by a video game! I was watching my husband Josh play a game called Xenoblade, and he was in one area, and it was night time. And he panned up to the sky, and all I could see was a dark blue and purple sky, with areas of pink in it, and I knew that I had to do my nails just like that.

So I got out my colors and started working. I have on two coats of Essie's Marshmallow, and then I took a regular cosmetic sponge, and blobbed some colors on it, and then.. sponged it on my nails! 

The blue is Essie's Midnight Cami, the Purple is butterLondon's HRH and the Pink is Essie's Sure Shot! This was super easy, and I used the same technique as I used for my last sponge gradient. 

After it was dry, I used a Coat of China' Glaze's Fairy dust to look like stars and there you have it! My night sky! :D 

It turned out EXACTLY how I wanted it too! I was so proud of this, I didn't want to take it off!
