Twinsie Tuesday: Cloud Mani


I refuse to concede that this week's Twinsie Tuesday is in any way a cheat.  While Cloud Manicures typically imply scalloped tape manis, I decided to go with a somewhat-yet-not-so-literal cloud manicure featuring three of the new Triple Shine polishes from Sally Hansen.

I started with a dark cloud, represented by Slick Black, a smoky charcoal creme made sleek with super fine multicolor shimmer.  After mastering what initially seemed to be an unwieldy pro-wide brush, I found application relatively quick and neat.  This was two coats.


Next, I decided to represent a rain cloud during a thunderstorm so I layered one thick coat of Pearly Whites over Slick Black.  These are rather largely cut flakies so placing them evenly in one coat took effort.  The effect was jarring and not as delicate as I would've liked, which I guess makes this the perfect thunder cloud.


And how can you have an array of clouds without fluffy, white nebula?  Enter Great White, my favorite of the three.  A soft marshmellow creme, Great White absolutely gleams with silvery white microshimmer.  Application was fantastic but since the formula is a bit sheer, I ended up using four thin coats for this mani.
