Twinsie Tuesday - Cloud Mani

Hi everyone!!

For this week's Twinsie Tuesday post, the challenge is to do a cloud mani.  I was super nervous about this one because I'd never done a cloud mani before.  I decided I would do it as an accent nail because I was afraid that I wouldn't get it right on all my nails.



I decided to use The Polish Bar Cloudy Skies to help me decide on the colors for this mani.  I thought it was only fitting because of the name of the polish ;0).  Since it has gray, purple and white, I used China Glaze Recycle as my base.  For the cloud, I then added Pure Nail Lacquer Blameless and finally Nicole by OPI I'm A Belieber.  I finished the mani off with Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

I was so happy that I was able to pull off a decent cloud mani.  I really liked the colors too and the combo with Cloudy Skies.  I'm looking forward to trying this technique again.

Have you ever tried a cloud mani before?  What do you think of this color combo?
