Northern Lights Nails by KatieAlves Northern Lights Nails by KatieAlves
This idea came from androidfink!

This was extremely hard to photograph. So some of the nails are angled funny to avoid the flash. I'm slowly getting used to doing nail art! It's still awkward and shaky with doing my left hand, but slowly!

These are a combination of northern lights and more space. Actually it's all supposed to be the northern lights, but some look more like space! XD

They are absolutely stunning! It really looks like outer space. I have no idea how you did it, but it is way cool and definately shows your artistic talent. The colors are vivid and the idea is very original. I have no idea how you got that foggy effect, but I am dying to. There's an attention to detail that you seem to put into everything you do that never fails to impress and induce awe. The sparkly background that is supposed to be the trillions of stars in space are so pretty and the whole thing is overall breath-taking.
Absolutely amazing.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
26 out of 26 deviants thought this was fair.

I love the color choices and the fact that you used the glitter polish to simulate the stars. I also admire you for being able to do such fine detail on a NAIL and I especially love the moon on that one nail. Very nice touch.

The only thing I'd have to say is tha Northern Lights have more shape to them. They have a definite line and then a drag up from that line like a shower curtain. It would have been nice to see a more pronounced line and perhaps some waves instead of the vague swirl.

Never the less, beautiful work as always!!
