I am so behind on my postings!! For April, I wanted an “April Showers” themed nail art so I decided to go with “Lightning Strike Nails”. I first did the design on my nail wheel to get a feel for what I wanted to do. That ended up being the pics I used for the tutorial above. When I actually did the design on my nails, I went with yellow lightning instead. I’m still torn as to which I like better, but I think I’m leaning toward the white.
This is basically a sponge nail art just like the galaxy nails except adding lightning. The tutorial above shows the steps. It’s pretty easy, just a lot of sponging in small areas. Just be sure the shimmer colors over the lightning are sponged very lightly, it is to add glow not color so be careful not to do too much.
Colors I used:
Grey cloud: Nails Inc - Porchester Square
Dark Cloud: Sally Hansen - Slick Slate
Gold/Yellow: Sally Hansen - Quick Canary
Purple: Sally Hansen HD - Cyber
Light Purple: Sinful Colors - Purple Diamond
Light Yellow: Pure Ice - Best Friend
Dark Grey: Sinful Colors - Ardoise
