Funky Cloud Mani

I decided to try my hand at a cloud manicure a la Nailside.  I always admire her manicures, and while I can't get anywhere close to her talent level, I can't resist trying out one of her tutorials every once in a while :)  So here's my interpretation of a funky cloud mani:

You guys would not believe how time consuming this is!!  It takes ages to layer all the colors, get the shapes right, etc.. but I like the end result.  Because of all the layers, this took AGES to dry and I got tipwear/shrinking right away.  I had to wrap my tips again right before I took these photos so it wouldn't look gross.
Anyway, the white is Zoya Purity, the orange is CG Life Preserver, and the purpley gray is Ulta Smoke Screen.  I like the color combination.  It even looks kind of tribal-ish to me.  Let me know what you guys think!  What color combos would look nice with this mani?

Thanks for reading!


  1. !! I saw nailside's tutorial for this and had to try it out for myself, too! I think the design is so cute, but still simple enough to do yourself! I used a blue holo as the base and then had black and white clouds. :)

    1. oh I bet that was gorgeous! I'm excited to try other color combos!

  2. I like these. I tried one, too~mine turned out ok. I think it takes forever as well, but I do love the end result! Nice job! =)(I like how you switched the color pattern on your ring finger).
