Summer Challenge: Kite Nails!

Today's theme for the Summer Challenge is ballooning/kite nails.  When I looked at the list tonight to see when the next challenge was and what the theme was, I almost didn't do it.  Now I'm kinda glad I did!  I wanted to use some polishes that I hadn't used yet so I started with a base of Color Club's Take Me To Your Chateau.  I must say I am very impressed with this polish!  For a pastel creme it is VERY easy to use! I think I could have actually gotten away with one coat but I used two for this mani.  I then freehand painted the kites using OPI If You Moust You Moust, then a black polish and nail art brush to do the outline and strings.  Then I went back with OPI I'm All Ears for the accent color on the kites.  I used a doting tool and Zoya Purity for the clouds and a silver polish for slight little outlines on the clouds.  This is one of my favorite challenge manis so far!  Don't forget to check the links below and see what the others came up with, and feel free to leave me some feedback and let me know what you think!
