Freehand Cloud Nails

What's up, Homies? :)

Today I have an attempt at some freehand nail art. A favorite nail blog of mine has great tutorials... and I am fairly pleased with how mine turned out. I could definitely improve my technique a little, and maybe choose a different color combo so it stands out a little more, but I think it looks pretty dang good for my first attempt!

With flash.

The colors I used: 
LA Splash - Blowfish Fushia
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Lightening
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sun Kissed

The orange color, Sun Kissed, needed three coats. It applied a little streaky and blobby, but it smoothed over after a good top coat of Seche Vite. 

On my accent finger, I applied two coats of Lightening, then I used a small paintbrush to do the cloud designs. You can visit Nailside's blog to view the tutorial. 

That's all I have for now! Thanks for stopping by.
