Summer Challenge: Day 24 - Underneath the Stars

OMG....I have the most kick-butt design to share!!!

Remember back to a challenge I completed for ASBMF, April Showers.  I took this design, changed a couple things and built upon a great idea.

Instead of black, this time I went with Nails Inc. New King's Road.  When I was swatching this polish the first thing I thought was how much it looked like the night sky.  I applied 2 coats, but I really only needed 1.




I pulled out my star glitter again and placed them while the polish was still wet.




I wanted my night sky to be cloudy, so I used the same Saran Wrap technique with NYC Sidewalkers.



As you can see, it really covered up my stars.  More than I wanted it too.




I had the perfect solution to the covered stars sitting in my Helmer....I Believe in Fairies by Whimsical Ideas by Pam.  I kind of dabbed the polish on instead of swatching.  It is GORGEOUS!!  It added the perfect star effect and turned this design into something special.



I ended up adding 3 coats of HK Girl because of the star glitter in IBiF.







Isn't the glitter amazing?!?!?!?  I really need to swatch IBiF in order to see the true beauty of this polish!
My design is like a beautiful, magical evening under the stars!
