City Lights

When I first got my hands on Barry M’s nail art pens I doodled straight away on my nails. One of the first doodles I did was a city skyline.  I never tried it again properly until today, and I love it.

I started with my sunset colours, China Glaze Purr-fect plum fading down to Barry M Blackberry, I used a sponge to create this gradient effect.

Once dry I used the black Barry M nail art pen to simply draw the buildings on, the purple photographed really dark but you can still make out the silhouettes. I then used a pale yellow to dot on the lights.

I would love to know what you think! Let me know!
