Concrete and Polish Nail Art Contest

Today's mani is my entry for April's nail art contest over at Concrete and Nail Polish. This is a 'play to the judge' type of contest... So April posted links to her facebook, pinterest, and goodreads page to help her readers find inspiration for a manicure. I found an awesome poster from Brainstorm on her 'nail inspiration' board on pinterest.

I took my inspiration from the Atmosphere poster. I adore Brainstorm.com by the way, so I really enjoyed doing this manicure. 

From Thumb to pinky I did each of the sphere's:
Exosphere (thumb): Finger Paints Black Expressionism
Thermosphere (index): Cult Nails Time Traveler
Mesosphere (middle): China Glaze First Mate
Stratosphere (ring): Gosh Blue Balloon
Troposphere (pinky): Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Brisk Blue

All details were painted using a dotting tool or nail art brush and Finger Paints Paper Mache

 Indoor Artificial light:
