I intended to use the music video to inspire me to do these nails, but it’s so full of death and darkness that I made myself think differently. I ended up doing a simple night mani.
Let me show you what it all ended up looking like:
The light blue is “Quel Blue Turquoise” from Catrice’s “L’Afrique, C’est Chique”-collection. It’s a lovely sky blue texture with glitter that covers perfectly in one single coat. Over that I sponged some darker blue shimmer from Maybelline, “Blue Freeze”. By the base of my nails I sponged a Sabrina that doesn’t appear to have neither name nor number, but it’s a black with silver glitter. I figured they’d be my night stars.
I quite like how that turned out.
I used OPI’s glitter off basecoat on my cuticles to minimize the clean up. This time it actually worked, so I think I just used a too thin layer of it last time. Note to self: Don’t be tight fisted with it!
Here are the polishes I used for my mani:
I think “Off the Night” sounds like a happy cheerful song but the video suggests otherwise. Which way would you have interpreted it?
Here’s the video to Of the Night:
