Day 22–Inspired by a Song

I know that I may have taken what should be a very emotional song and taken it a little too literally, but Skyscraper by Demi Lovato has been running through my head for days now! I apologize for the lack of natural light as it’s very dark and rainy today. I used this cutepolish tutorial and just added a few extra things. I started off with two coats of Forever 21 Love and Beauty – Blue and sponged on China Glaze – Gothic Lolita. I then used one coat of China Glaze – Fairy Dust for stars in the night sky and painted the skyscrapers using OPI – Black Onyx. Finally, I dotted on the lights with Sally Hansen XTremewear – Mellow Yellow.
