Creative musings in bright colors

Horizon

The inspiration for this mani is two steps removed, I saw a similar design by nargisjonik, which had been inspired by the cover for the movie Gravity. Either way, I loved the concept and so ran with it! It is also “weird science” day at Lacquer Legion and I love how strange the different layers of the atmosphere act with regards to color! Hence the cool gradient thingie.

According to my boyfriend, this is my “best nail art for a while” which hurts a little since it only took about 30 minutes! But hey, what can you say. Glittery mutlichrome bases and space make for a good combination! It helps that he loves space. SPAAACE. (You know, in the PORTAL voice).

The intent was to make that little ball on my ring finger the moon, but I didn’t feel like adding enough detail to make it recognizable. It was too small! I also feel like this mani is a bit of a secret…when my fingers are spread out it just looks like a slightly confused french manicure. It is only when I line them up that you see the surface of the planet falling away!

  4. I think this is really pretty n/a!

    I am at my Poconos home for a month and although it is quite isolated in a 1500 home community because I don’t drive so don’t have a car, it isn’t much different from how I chose to live within my large Manhattan apt. Here the “noises” are of birds and crickets, though, with very few ambulances and fire truck screeches.

    Enjoy and keep moving along in technique!

  5. Wow, I really like this nailart! Well done!

  6. Love this! *-*
