14 Days Of Achtung Baby: Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

Hello lovelies! Happy Tuesday! I'm going to jump straight into day ten (!!!) of my Achtung Baby nail art...

Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

"when I was all messed up and I had opera in my head, your love was a lightbulb hanging over my bed"

Ultraviolet, the song that rings in the last three of the album, which are something of a holy trinity in my mind. Ultraviolet, Acrobat and Love Is Blindness just belong together. They're arguably the heaviest songs on the album. Ultraviolet especially always struck a chord with me, the lyrics, the melody, the way it makes you jump and dance and sing your heart out when it's played live.

I figured I'd keep it nice and simple for this one. I didn't really want to use a lot of colour, because the song does paint a rather desolate picture, so this is what I came up with. I did freehand all of this, so it's not as neat as could be.

Products I used:
OPI Planks A Lot
China Glaze Liquid Leather
Rimmel Ultra Violet (how could I not?!)
Paris Memories #253 (at least that's what I think...)
Catrice London Weather Forecast
+ artist brushes, white striper polish and topcoat
