Nail Art: A UFO Flies Above the Trees!

I finally got some new batteries into my camera and got some decent photos of this mani!  Unfortunately, it was still pretty cloudy out, so the lighting wasn't the best, but oh well.

I really love doing nighttime scenes and silhouettes, so I thought a UFO flying above a forest would be fun!  This was a pretty easy mani and I highly encourage others to try it.  For "regular" trees, you just sort of mash a small brush around and for evergreens, you paint the basic skeleton of the tree and the fill it in a bit with extra strokes.  The UFO is just a line and a dot, with lights dotted on and a painted beam.  These were the products I used:

Cult Nails Nevermore (base)
Sinister Benediction Horse Feathers (sky color, has a teal-blue-purple shift to it)
Orly Liquid Vinyl (trees and UFO)
China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard (lights)

I think I may try this again in the future, but with a city skyline instead of the trees.  

Sinister Benediction Horse Feathers was provided to me by the creator.  All other polishes and supplies purchased by me



    I mean, awesome!!!

  2. Fun mani! Made me think of X-Files...and I'm showing my age now aren't I?

    1. Thanks! I used to watch The X-Files with my mom back in the day :)
