Inspired by a colour…
For this I chose a colour I haven’t seen for a while, Sky blue! It has been really wet and cloudy where I live, not very spring like at all!
My first choice for this was going to be purple, I put all of my purple polishes onto my desk (I have a lot more of them than I thought!) and I looked at them, and nothing! not a drop of inspiration! Went and had a cup of tea, glared at the pile of purple polish from the sofa, I’m usually ok at choosing a polish and working what it will look nice with or what kind of pattern it would suit, but clearly not today!
I decided to have a break and pottered off to do some gardening, while I was grubbing about in a pot of lilies, I was thinking how nice it would be to have some blue sky!
For my sky blue nails I used
- 17 – Heart Beat
- Barry M – Blueberry Ice Cream
- Sinful Colors – Paradise
- China Glaze – White on White
- Konad SP – Black
- Messy Mansion – MM14
- Seche Vite
This really was very easy, I used the three pale blues for the very subtle gradient, the clouds I used a large dotting tool, and then stamped the birds over the top!
It’s not purple but I really like it! 🙂

Thank you 🙂 Stamping is great fun… I found that it’s just the practicing that’s a pain lol 🙂
