Don’t Talk Cumulonimbus To Me

I have cloudy nails. Aren’t they just SOMETHING?

I tried a new technique – Nimbus nails, and it’s such a fun one to actually execute, and the end result is pretty awesome too.
I modified Sammy’s technique – I wanted the dots pretty defined, not too smudged with acetone, so I have a combo of clouds and blurry dots, which is how I like ’em.

Have you tried it before?
Are you going to try it now?
It’s very cool, I recommend it.

The nail polishes I used in this one are one of my favourites, and they’re perfect as they’re kind of dirty, cloudy colours themselves, in the right company. It’s:

* OPI Don’t Talk Back to Me, a yellow toned green, an ugly colour which I ADORE, sort of maybe a little bit pistachio, but more half light olive half funky lime, weird and lovely
* Sally Hansen Wet Cement, which is slowly becoming my favourite grey I guess – I seem to be reaching for it more and more (btw I would really love to see a comparison of Wet Cement and OPI Cement the Deal from the 50 Shades of Grey collection – anyone have both?)
* I made the clouds with Konad Special Polish in white

Ever wore nimbus nails? Let me know.

Hope you’re all fantastic,
I personally have been having the kind of week where I feel only indulging in my hobby and the blogosphere will cheer me up, you know?

  1. Wet Cement, oh my gosh. That’s me if I ever named nail polishes- “Cat Litter Grey” or maybe “Murky Puddles in the Early Spring When the Slushy Gross Snow is Still Melting.” Possibilities, possibilities. I really enjoyed the hazy layered effect on yo claws this week though, pretty darn awesome :D

    • I would SO BUY the Murky Puddles in the Early Spring – I wouldn’t even care about the actual colour : P

      I adore nail polish names, the weirder or punier, the better.

      ‘Hazy, layered effect’ – oh perfect, thank you!

    • Thank you Agata! : )

      This one’s SUPER easy – you paint your nails the base colour, wait a while so it semi-dries and then, take a COTTON BUD, your dotting colour (white in my case, clouds) and acetone/nail polish remover.
      Put a few drops of white on a piece of plastic, then dip your cotton bud in acetone, then in the white – dab a few times on a piece of paper, so it’s not soaking wet anymore, and finally – dab onto your nail. Keep dipping, dabbing, dabbing until you’re happy with the result. Then top coat – try it, you’ll see how easy it is as soon as you try it : )

      Let me know if you attempt this, Agata!

  2. Pretty! If you put it onto aqua/turquoise or a deeper blue shade, they might look like a swarm of cutesy jellyfish :)

  3. Genius! Wow, you’re so talented! I’ve never seen this design anywhere before. And you have incredibly beautiful hands! (*hides my hands in shame*, lol!)
