Tropical Cloud Manicure


I’ve done the cloud manicure a few times now. I like mixing up the colours and this is a very bright rendition! It ended up looking very rasta and let me just point out that I really didn’t mean for it to! It just happened.. Naturally. I just went through my untried polishes and picked out ones that would go well together.

I started off with three (yup, three) coats of OPI Fiercely Fiona. I only got this because my best friends name is Fiona. Other than that, I’m not very attached to it. It’s streaky and just a bit if a weird colour. I then used Cover Girl Go-Go-Mango and Revlon Wind Fall to create the cloud layers. I really like the Cover Girl Outlast polishes, they have really good coverage and remind me of the Max Factor polishes I got a while back. I only had to use one coat/ stripe of these polishes but between all the coats of poshe top coat.. This ended up being a very thick manicure!

Well enjoy some photos and happy Monday!





Pre Spring Challenge Day 14: recreate


So this is the final day of the pre spring challenge creates by Polish Alcoholic and Mommy Loves Nail Polish. Give them a hand for putting it all together! Yaaaay!

I revisited and recreated my sky manicure. Instead of using the Himalayan Blue though I decided to use Be Happy by Sinful Colors instead, I just love this color! It is so cute and really does make me happy.. ūüôā



Cloud manicure


This is an easy manicure and it actually ended up looking pretty cool. I was stuck for a nail design all I knew is that I wanted to use the Himalayan Blue from Sally Hansen – it’s such a nice formula! I really like it and I’m getting into bluest this summer (it’s coming on summer in New Zealand). I used two coats of blue then used my cheap white Going To The Chapel by Rubi Shoes and a cotton bud/ q-tip to create the clouds.


Cloud inspired nails


I decided to go with a cloud type nail design today. It was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be! I saw this design online a while back and put it in the “too hard” basket for some reason.

I started off with two coats of an Orly polish that I don’t know the name of. It’s really old so I don’t even know if they still make it and the label peeled off the bottom. I then used BYS Matte Mint Green (my go to polish these days) to create the second layer. I did three strokes essentially, making each stroke shorter than the last. Lastly I used Shower Together by China Glaze to make the same effect on top of the green.
