Hi dear readers :)
No stamping challenge today, as yesterday was April's Fool, the girls on Adventures in Stamping decided to do a non-stamping manicure ! I loved the idea, but as this is a scheduled post it's no fun to do something in advance :p
Anyway, I'll show you a non-stamping manicure I made a while ago ;)
You already know about my love for Jane and her manicures on Nailside. she does a great job, and she shares some secrets with her tutorials.
Lately I loved her Cloud manicures and decided to follow her explanations on how to make them. Well the most difficult part was to choose some colors. As I ust got P2 Night Out and wanted to try it, I started with it as the base.
I know they are not perfect, they look a bit square-y, but i'm still glad with them !
I used P2 Night Out as the base, China Glaze Millenium for the middle color, and the third color is a little mess ... I wanted to use a dark blue crackle but it ate the coat of Millenium, so I hid the damages with two coats of China Glaze Skyscraper.
I'll use this technique many more time, I love it and the possibilities are infinite ! Next time I'd like to add more contrast :)
What do you think ? Have your ever tried the cloud manicure ?
You can see the tutorial I used here: http://nailside.blogspot.com/2012/01/tutorial-freehand-cloud-design.html
Have a nice day :)
This is a scheduled post. I'll reply to your comments as soon as I come back :) Thank you !
