Today I have another post from the Fall Into Autumn Challenge for you all, there's only one more after this one then I'm all caught up! :) So the theme for this post was cloudy days. Now we all know how much I love doing cloud mani's, so I thought I'd try out a different colour scheme for this one...
Autumn in the UK usually makes me think of dark mornings and dark evenings, where the sky is a deep inky blue, the clouds are dark grey and the weather is cold. I wanted to portray this in my nail art.
I used two coats of OPI Ink Suede for the base on all nails, I felt that this polish recreated the colour of an Autumn sky perfectly for me. I then added two coats of Barielle Platinum Ring to create the first cloud shapes. I then added two coats of OPI Russian Navy Matte to the top to create the final cloud shapes. I then added one coat of Barielle Starry Sky on my ring finger to create the look of stars.
I really enjoyed doing these nails, it took me a while to settle on a colour combination as I had such a specific idea in my head :P But I think it turned out really pretty, this would also work well as a winter based mani as the glitter on the accent nail kind of looks like snow :P It's just so beautiful!
Thanks for reading :)
