Full of Hot Air
Today, I'm sharing my hot air balloon mani. It didn't come out exactly as I had hoped. I was trying to go for a brighter, lighter, look. Even though it wasn't exactly what I had in mind, it was still fun to wear.
I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Blue Blast for my sky. For the background clouds, I used NYC French White Tip and the cloud image from Mash 37. The balloon image is from the Cheeky European Romance plate. I used Milani Black magic for the stamping since I didn't want to risk smearing as I filled in the balloons. Then, I just grabbed a bunch of colors and a tiny nail brush and got to filling in the balloon colors.
If I were redoing this mani, I would probably start with a lighter blue - or even a pastel or pearly blue. That might have brightened up the sky a bit and have allowed for lighter balloon colors. I guess I'll know what the try the next time I feel "flighty"!
Up, up, and away, Konnadicts!
