Fancy clouds


Hello dear readers :) This post I'd like to share this cloud mani with you. The red I've used is China Glaze Phat Santa, I bought it last Christmas in a set with Jolly Holly and Party Hearty, which I now happily own! (For some really strange reason I thought I didn't need Party Hearty when it came out in 2010, so weird, because it's so pretty!) I'd worn Phat Santa on its own for a day, but the next day I already had subtle tipwear on some nails, so that's when I applied the layered cloud look to cover up things. Another reason why I love this design ;-) The silver and black are China Glaze Millenium and Color Club Where's The Soiree? respectively, two of my most often used polishes.
I've received many requests for a tutorial for this cloud design, so you can expect it soon :) In the meantime you can read how I make the pattern in this post. Thank you for reading!

  25. Just found you via tumblr. I love this design, it really reminds me of the 1930s and Art Deco. In fact I have an Art Deco brooch in almost exactly these colours. Gorgeous.

  34. all of your designs are gorgeous!
    sometimes i find it hard to get hold of some of the brands you use, so what are your favourite "highstreet" brands? I've just started a blog of my own:

    http://mimidc.blogspot.com/

    i would like to post some of my own nail designs, but not sure what to start off with, i wondered if you could give me some ideas?

    1. Hi Mimi, thanks so much for your comment!
      My favorite brands are probably China Glaze, OPI and Essence. The latter usually has great quality polishes for a really low price and can be bought here in the Netherlands. However I buy CG and OPI online from Ebay, I love their range of colors and OPI's brush and formula.
      Also congratulations with the start of you own blog! You could start with anything you like really, it could be showing a favorite polish or perhaps nail art inspired by a dress/bag/pattern. Just have fun! ^^
