A Starry Sky

A Starry Sky it a blue shaded ombre, gradient nail art design. Start with a lighter shade of blue on the base and then work with more darker shades with a makeup sponge. Base: Lighter shade of blue, Next: One shade darker blue. Third gradient color i used is purple and the last one on and around the tip of the nail is a navy shimmery blue. I then coated the tip with holo glitter to get the starry effect. I used seche vite fast drying top coat. I highly recommend using that top coat if you are not already using it. It dries in less then a minute and thus prevents any smudging from impatience.
