Nighty Night!!

Some nights, our little two year old, Evan, just doesn't want to go to bed.  Shocking, right?!  Well, tonight we turned on The Good Night Show.  This particular little blip that we caught featured all of the Sprout TV characters sleeping in their beds.  While I found this to be a little ridiculous, after about 7 minutes of watching this, Evan declared that he was ready to go to bed!!!!  So guess what we'll be watching every single night now?! This little event is the inspiration behind this design!

I started with two coats of Zoya's Ki - an amazing multi chrome polish that shifts from grey, to purple, to green.  I thought this would be perfect for the night sky color, as it changes so often as well!

I am absolutely in love with this color!  It goes on so brilliantly as well, being completely opaque in two coats.

After the two coats of Ki, I used my dotting tool to create the cloud edge with Jo, a soft shimmery blue.  Once the dots were in place, I used the polish brush to finish the cloud shape by dragging the brush downward from the dots.  

I repeated these steps for the inner cloud shade with Kotori, which is an amazing glitzy blue.  To look at the bottle makes you assume it is a metallic, but it is really anything but!  Kotori is actually a bit thin and almost sheer, so thicker coats are necessary.  For a little detailing, I used a striping brush to create the little Z's, then I used Luminescent with the Salon Effects plate SE21 for the moon and stars.  I finished it off with a coat of SV.  

(I didn't realize until shortly after that I used three Zoya's for my main colors, and painted three Z's on my nail.  Ha!)  I hope lil' Evan likes this one when I show him in the morning!  
So, I guess all that's left for me to say is nighty night!!!
