Festival Of Lights

 Today's theme is "Festival Of Lights" I've been looking forward to this one because I've been wanting to try our the string lights nail art. I wanted it to look like light strung up outside so I started with a white base.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze 'White On White" the first coat was a bit streaky, but the second coat evened it all out. I wanted to make it look a little more like snow, so....

I added 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "In A Flash" which gave my nails a bit of a frosty look, which I felt gave it the perfect look.

   
 After I added a quick dry coat to the base, I used a nail art pen to create the black lines which is the "string" part of the lights.
 Then using a dotting tool I added the colors randomly to each nail. At first I thought it looked to crowded, but then I realized that's how it should look :)

 The colors I used are: China Glaze 'Dorothy Who?'

 China Glaze 'Ruby Pumps'
  
 China Glaze 'Running In Circles'

 Wet N Wild '9.0.2.1.Orange'

 and Wet N Wild 'The Gold & The Beautiful"

I really like how it turned out and I next time I'll try and space out the "lights' a little more and see how that turns out.
