On Stranger Clouds

Happy Tuesday!

Today I have for you my first attempt at a cloud manicure.  This also falls into the category of sensible work manicures (er...sort of).

I used a base of OPI Planks A Lot, then drew on the clouds using Barry M Gold Foil and OPI Stranger Tides (gotta love those Pirates of the Caribbean polishes).  I added a little sparkle using Saffron 01 and BeautyUK Gold Digger.

I have to say, from all the cloud manicures I've seen on other people's blogs, I thought it would be easier.  It was flipping difficult.  The brush on the OPI mini was perfect for this though, and I have a much easier time with that than the full size Barry M brush.

I was very pleased with the end result anyway :)  What do you think?  Have you tried a cloud manicure?


  1. Sensible work polish - what is that?!?! I'm all about the crazy neons and nail art, what are they going to do fire me?!? LOL These turned out awesome, I've never seen cloud nails with glitter, fab!

    1. I figure everything's better with glitter right? They looked a bit plain without it. To be honest, I started off on my first day of work with very sensible nails, and it just went downhill from there. I work in a hospital so if I have patient contact, painted nails wouldn't go down too well lol.

  2. Wow this is so cute, love the combination :)
