10 Day Challenge: Day 8

Hi everyone! Welcome to day 8 of the challenge. Today's nails are supposed to be inspired by a movie.






Up is one of my most favorite movies of all time so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. These nails were inspired by the scene where Mr. Fredricksen and Russel are just taking off and they are in the sky.

 On the ring finger I have a ton of balloons and then on the middle and pinky finger, I have a little more balloons then the sky and some clouds. For the sky/clouds, I started off with one coat of Bettina Vintage Jean then sponged on some white. For the balloons, using a big dotting tool, I would dot a couple colors, then take a smaller dotting tool and drag the polish a little bit down so the shape would be more "balloon-ey". I did that about 2-3 times using different colors. Topped it all off with one coat of Pro-FX.

Thanks so much for reading and be sure to let me know what you think! :)
