I didn't plan to do cloud nails today. I actually started with these:
I was going for a subtle cool toned metallic stripe thing but the blue-gray I used (BL Lady Muck) turned out way bluer and darker than I expected and I didn't like the contrast. I was trying to decide how to fix them when I remember the cloud tutorial I'd seen on Nailside. The color scheme was perfect for clouds, so I decided to give it a try.
It was actually really easy, despite being my first attempt at any kind of freehand design. In retrospect, I think I prefer the bright colors Jane @ Nailside used- it's more abstract that way and has kind of a psychedelic vibe, which is just cooler. Also- next time I will not try to do a freehand design immediately after consuming my second double espresso of the day. Shaky hands and nail art are not friends.
