By request, a tutorial for my evening sky nails. I started out with a base of China Glaze Sweet Hook, a really lovely pastel lilac. I created a gradient between the lilac base and a sky blue (Orly Frisky) using a sponge, and then added more gradient using sky blue, bright blue (Essie Strut Your Stuff), and navy blue (Zoya Sailor). I find it easier to do gradients with a lot of colors in two stages like this. I mixed a pale coral color using several polishes and added a little line of the at the very base of the nail.
I started the light clouds with some messy dabs of an off-white polish (OPI My Vampire Wears Buff), then added some dabs of white (OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls) for highlights. I made a purpley gray color by mixing the lilac Sweet Hook with the grey Zoya Dove, and dabbed that around for some low lights. The dark clouds were constructed similarly, using a dusty purple for the base (Zoya Odette), a pink for highlights (Butter London Trout Pout), and a purpley-blue for shadows (Zoya Odette mixed with Zoya Sailor). I was intentionally ‘sloppy’ with the clouds, laying on polish thick in places and very light in other areas, to make it feel organic. Topcoat, and done!
