Cloud Nails

hello everyone :)
Today I have a new mani for you all to feast your eyes on. I've loved the "cloud" style manis i've seen on nailsides blog, and I always said I'd give it a go and never got around to it. well I finally did and I absolutely love how it turned out! Take a look...

I used 2 coats of OPI Play The Peonies as the base colour. I then used 1 coat of OPI Pink Friday to create the first cloud shape and then topped this off with 1 coat of OPI Super bass Shatter to create the final cloud shape. 
Here's a closer image so you can really see the different colours I used. I liked using the two subtle pinks together and then adding a deeper pop of colour with the purple shatter, I think the colours work really well together. I also think this picture shows how well my photography is progressing, leave a comment telling me what you think and maybe some tips to help me improve even more? :)
To create the cloud shapes I let a drop of polish collect at the tip of the brush and used that to create the rounded end of the cloud shape, then repeated 3 times on each nail. The shatter was harder to do as I had to be really careful not to overlap strokes or I ended up with darker patches or less crackle etc :P Overall, I really enjoyed this mani, everything about it made me smile. a lot of my friends at uni had never seen anything like this before so I had to explain several times how to do it :P I will try this mani again soon but with different colour schemes. 
I'll be putting the 52 week challenge post up tomorrow :)
Thanks for reading and feel free to comment on anything about this mani or my photo skills :)
