The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Music/Movies/TV - Air Balloon

I have to say, I had a hard time finding inspiration for my last design.  I kept coming up with book themes, which is not what this them is about!  I decided to focus on music, seeing that I did designs for movies and TV.  After some thinking I decided to do a manicure based on Lily Allen's new song Air Balloon.  I am a HUGE Lily Allen fan and love everything she puts out!  The new album is proving to be just as awesome!  I was going to do Air Balloon nails and then I got a better idea.  If you are a fan of Lily Allen also, you know that she loves nail art.  She is always sporting some amazing design.  I decided to recreate the manicure that she wore for the video!

Here is Lily's manicure.

I'll take you through the steps of my re-creation!

I started with two coats of Shimmer Polish Tracy.

I added Orly Monster Mash to my tips.

I added my safari animals using Milani Black Swift and images from GA32 and 46.

I didn't have gold studs, so I added some Essie Good As Gold dots as a substitute.

I love these fun, glittery nails!  It is something that I never would have thought of doing!  I think my re-creation is pretty good. Thanks Lily Allen!

And the video!


  1. That is pretty! Love how it sparkles and the look of the chunky glitters too.
