I did 2 coats of plum lock and then sponged on a gradient of the plum and bright blue. I sponged some white and purple at the base of the nail. I brushed on some bright blue glitter and then I panted on the lightning bolts with the white which blended with the base coat. I then used an acrylic paint fine tipped pen to draw the line over the misty looking bolts.
My nails have been a creative outlet since the minute I quit biting them in 1984! There was a time I could just put on a pretty polish and be happy for 2 weeks or so. Not anymore!
