Earlier on there was a thunderstorm almost directly above where I live! Woohoo! Inspiration! 😀 So here are my Lightning strike nails
I used Greige Gardens and Ivory skull both from Sally Hansen, Black on Black from Sinfulcolors, Baptiste from Illamasqua and cosmic dust from china glaze!
I started out with a coat of Black on Black, then sponged the dark purple Baptiste making sure not to cover the whole nail, after that had dried I used Greige gardens and Cosmic Dust to give the impression of clouds.
For the lightning I used Ivory Skull and a fine brush!
then sponged in a tiny bit more of the white Ivory Skull over the lightning, which worked perfectly up until my little finger nail I think the sponge must have dried out too much or I pressed to hard…
I really love how this looks and I will try this again, maybe with blues and greys or different shades of silver or red and black for Halloween!

Woman, you did it! I love this mani. Pure art! I agree with Elektra King, would be great for Halloween as well.

Haha, I can NEVER catch that moment when you can look at lightning in the sky and I love storms, so it always bums me out. Your nails are literally an embodiment of ‘take a picture, it will last longer’ 😀 Incredible !
