Turquoise & Clouds

I have finally finished all the blog housekeeping and can show you my latest design!

I have been wanting to recreate this design since I first saw Jane at Nailside do it. I had trouble figuring out how to complete the design and then Jane posted a tutorial. I had to slap myself for how simple it is!

I started with 2 coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos.

I am really liking this color, however it was a little thin. 



Next, I added the first layer of clouds using Essie Absolutely Shore.



I wasn't too worried about the color being even, seeing that I would be adding another coat on top.

Next, I added a layer of white using Wet 'n' Wild French White and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I had to switch up whites because the Wet 'n' Wild brush was all jacked up!  Annoying!!!





Lastly,  I added 2 coats of DL Addicted to Speed. I think my DL is done because it is all thick and hard to get all over application.





I love my clouds!! My students couldn't believe that I free-handed these.  They said the clouds were to perfect and even! I will be doing this design again!!
