Pinterest Week - Lightning Storm Nails

Hey guys!

Welcome to Day 5 of Pinterest Week!

The mani that I've decided to recreate today is one that really caught my eye the first time I saw it. It's a lightning storm design and it just looks SO freaking cool.

Here's a link to my pin for this design, and here's the link to the original source.


The base colour for this design is Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. I then used a sponge to create a background for the lightning using China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue, Revlon Blue Lagoon and China Glaze Urban Night. Finally, I used a small nail art brush and Wet 'n' Wild French White to freehand the lightning bolts.


I really, really love how this design turned out! It's another one of those it-looks-really-complex-but-is-actually-quite-simple-to-do type of manicures.


I hope that you all liked today's design! And be sure to check back tomorrow for another Pinterest recreation!

    1. Definitely! And it might be cool to go over the lightning blots with a glow in the dark polish for an added spooky effect!
