My First Cloud Mani!

Very quick post from me today! I was just about to turn the laptop off when I remembered I needed to make a blog post! My bad!

This was my very first cloud mani (in fact only cloud mani so far) and while I was fairly happy with the results I was disappointed in a few things that I know to tweak next time.

I've been wanted to do a cloud mani for aaaaages now ever since stumbling across Nailside. I stumbled across Jane's blog following pictures from Tumblr of lightning bolt tape manicures and wondering how the heck all her mani's look so perfect. She's incredibly talented, and just has the cleanest lines evahh!

Now; the photo as I'm going to climb into bed and watch Bad Education and possibly sleep (yes it is only half 8!)
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Barry M - Black Multi Glitter
Other Colours: Barry M - Gold Foil
Deborah - Turquoise Fever
Top Coat: Rimmel 60 Seconds - Clear
So things I would change for next time would mainly be leaving more of the middle colour visible. And being more careful about colours bleeding. The gold foil left some little glittery streaks.

Anyhoo! I hope you're all having a nice Friday night!
