Sky Scene Nails Tutorial

Hi everyone,
Today's tutorial is for the sky scene nails I created in the summer.
I really liked these nails and thought they turned out well.
You can see the original post here.

Here are the polishes I used:

Here are the tools I used:

Now, on to the tutorial:

Paint your nails with a base coat and then add your chosen base colour (the lightest colour out of the three blues).

Next, paint a stripe of each of the blues going from light to dark.

Sponge on the colours, making sure the lightest colour is at the tip of your nail.
Then, use a fast drying topcoat to seal your gradient.

Use your dotting tool dipped in white nail polish to create a few clouds on the nail

Once your nails are completely dry, use your nail art pen to create bird shapes on your nail.

Wait for your design to dry, and then add a top coat. You can clean up your design after using a brush dipped in acetone or my personal preference, Barry M Nail Polish Corrector.

Here is a round up of all of the steps:
