Starry night

Hello my lovelies! Hope your weekend is very relaxing and fun. This Sunday's theme in Adventures In Stamping was "the sky's the limit". We could use our imagination and do whatever sky related stamping manicure we wanted. I had 2 ideas for a night and a day sky but the day one didn't come out that good so I'm not sure if I will post it. The night one turned out great in my opinion  and I liked it a lot. 

There are a lot of versions of the "galaxy nails" online but I decided to do some night sky nails instead. I started with a base of OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue and used several blue polishes to sponge over it. Here's a picture of all the blues I used. 

L-R: OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue, China Glaze First Mate, Rimmel My Denim and Rapsodi 340
I used a makeup sponge tip applicator and started with the darkest color (First Mate). I sponged randomly to imitate the clouds on a night sky. I then sponged with My Denim and finally with the lightest Rapsodi on top to give dimension to the sponging. Here's how it looked after this step. 

Next I used a coat of INM Out The Door to level everything out and add a holo glitter for the starry sky effect. This is how it looked. 

Finally I stamped some stars using my new Cheeky plates and a-england Excalibur. Both images are from plate CH4. You will be seeing a lot of stars in my manicures in the future because I love them! You can see a hint of the holo effect of this mani in the following picture.

I hope you liked this as much as I did and I can't wait to read your opinions on this mani. Have a great weekend!
