#31DC2013 – Inspired by a Tutorial

Oh wow, this is the penultimate theme! This challenge has gone by so fast. It’s the first time I haven’t done all of a challenge, but I did manage two thirds, so I’m not going to beat myself up about it! Huge kudos to everyone who did every theme, that really is something to be proud of, and I have so enjoyed discovering so many new blogs! 

So today’s challenge is “Inspired by a Tutorial”. Well, I’m a bit late to this party (I usually am…), I decided to try my hand at a cloud mani. It’s actually not the easiest nail art I’ve done – the brush needs to be loaded just right, and if you’re not patient, you can end up with a bubbly mani.

From left to right :

  • Barry M – Peach Melba
  • Bondi New – York Lady Liberty
  • Barry M – Gold Foil Nail Effects

Cloud Mani tutorials are very easy to find, so it’s hard to work out who the ‘inventor’ is – the oldest tutorial I can find is to Nailside‘s, so I’m quoting that here, unless anyone disagrees.

Tomorrow’s theme is “Honor Nails You <3” – have you chosen yours yet? I have 😀
