[Nail-Art-A-Go-Go] Day 10: Night Sky

For day 10's night sky mani, I decided to draw the aurora borealis on my nails. Not sure if I really nailed it, but hey, I tried. I didn't have a glowy green close to the ones in actual northern lights, so I went with a neon yellow instead. Next time I'll do it right!

By the way, I read up on northern lights and they're so interesting! If you want to know how they work, check out this article. But the cool thing is, different colors show at different altitudes in the earth's atmosphere. I tried to mimic this layering in my art with green (yellow) at the bottom and purple at the top. Although the blue and purple lines are hard to make out against the black background.
