First, I painted my nails with two coats of Black Satin from Rimmel, followed by one coat of Yoga-Ta Get this Blue from OPI.
I loved how this combination worked out. It was a really gorgeous midnight blue, that sparkled like crazy in the sun.
Then I chose to add a design to my ring finger. So I painted the Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights).
To make the Aurora Borealis, I sponged on various colours, including Frostbite from China Glaze, Ogre-the-Top-Blue from OPI, Grey-t to Be Here from Essence, and glitter polish from It's So Easy Stripe Rite and Sally Girl. I also used acrylic to make the actual Northern Lights. Then I used black acrylic for the silhouette of the land.
I hope you like my first manicure of 2013!
