Well after a tough couple of weeks, I'm on a break from work, hurrah! I'm back in to one of my jobs in the week but only for a few afternoons, so I can take a huge breather. Except in terms of studying...still got to do that one. I'm trying to think of June when I'll be done with studying for the summer, but it's a long way away at the moment!
To celebrate the first day of my holiday combined with usual Saturday cheerfulness, I wanted to do my nails in a multi-coloured not for work style. By chance I came across the technique above via Summer's blog design is mine, which linked to a guest post on Amanda's blog Here Comes the Sun, featuring Katie at Katie Jessica Creations's tutorial for 'Retro Cloud Nails' (phew, long linky sentence there). Any of those three links will lead you to the 'Retro Cloud Nails' tutorial.
|Haven't removed the overlap polish onto skin in the pic, a bit smooshy.|
I love them, they're so cheerful and bright. I took the picture above right after they were finished and didn't notice how much polish I had smooshed around until after it was up here and good daylight was gone. (Excuses excuses, I'm just a messy nail polish-er).
If you do yours I'm sure they will be much neater.
Tools of the colourful trade pictured and named below. Enjoy any attempts you make at them, it's well worth it if you have the time and a well-ventilated room - so much polish open at once can be nasally overwhelming.
