I saw these "fancy clouds" yesterday on Nailside and thought it would be a fun design to try! Here's a tip that I learned the hard way, use one coaters or its very thick and easy to smudge by the end of adding all of the colors. haha. It wasn't too hard, but since I used some OPI polishes with the pro-wide brush, it wasn't super easy to make the "bumps" for the layers.
Since all 3 colors are similar to one another, it ended up being more of a subtle design that still got to showcase the new Finger Paints Special Effect I got recently! Next time, I'll do more contrasting colors, but I knew I wanted to do darker colors so you could appreciate the flakies.
