Lily Allen Air Balloon Nail Art Competition

This is so exciting! I was emailed not long ago by someone informing me of a Lily Allen nail art competition, and whether I would be interested in taking part and letting Nailsxo readers aware of it.

Lily Allen recently released her single ‘Air Balloon‘ and to celebrate she has launched a competition to design a set of nails for her to model. To learn more about this competition, visit here.

If you have watched Lily Allen’s Air Balloon video then you will understand the inspiration for my nails:


Which is your favourite nail?

Which is your favourite nail?

After watching Lily Allen’s video, I could not decide what to base my design on! There was so much inspiration! In the end, I chose to implement several of my favourite scenes:

I loved the part where she is dancing on the grass and big mushrooms start to sprout all around her – so I created this over two of the nails.

There is also a scene near the end where it starts to leave the edge of Earth and enters Space – I therefore made this happen over the next two nails; the clouds, then the edge of Earth, and then Space.

For the final nail, the inspiration came from the animals featured in the video – a Zebra and a Cheetah.

To make these nails look more edgy, I filed them into a point and placed a rhinestone on the very end. I also placed metallic striping tape going down each side of the nails from the pointed edge.

These were so much fun to make, and I have my fingers crossed for the competition which ends tomorrow (the 24th)! So what do you think of my nails? Which is your favourite? (Comment box is at the very bottom of the page).

These nails also fit in nicely with this weeks theme (for FingerFood’s Theme Buffet) which is ‘Freestyle’! You can check out the other ladies nails in this group below:
