Sooooo, last night I did the next challenge mani for Fall into Autumn. I was excited for this one. I had a couple designs running through my brain. A few of the other girls have already shared their mani's and some were very similar to what I wanted to do. I brain stormed a little more, then went to you tube and did a little looking around. There were a few cloudy mani's to get inspiration from :)
Now, when you see the mani, you are only going to see one nail. I was having a couple issues and then I was having more issues with my kids. Hubby was working late and I just couldn't hang.
Here is my lonely finger
Base Coat: Rejuvacote
Base Color: Essence Vampire's Love Into The Dark (1 coat)
Stamping Plate: Mash 37
Stamping Polish: Konad Special White
Grey: China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Cracked Concrete
Top Coat: Essie Matte About You
I was very surprised at how well these little clouds stamped. I think using my plastic Konad scraper is turning out to be much better than my old gift card. I used the crackle as the grey accent cause I wanted it to be a little different and I wanted to see how much it would crack when using just a tiny bit. I used a dotting tool to add the grey to the clouds. Now, I let these dry for at least 15 minutes. It took that long get my table cleaned up and deal with my little ones. I chose a matte top coat cause I thought it would be fun and different. I tested on a nail and liked it. So I continued. When I got to my hand I would be photographing, all went to hell :( My poor little clouds were smearing! Every finger except my pointer finger was messed up. That is why you are only seeing one finger today. I couldn't get a very good shot of my whole hand any way. Like I said, it was a bad evening. However, I think this one lonely finger came out great and this is what I hoped my entire mani would have looked like.
How many times have you been trying to do a special mani and everything just goes wrong?
