A cloudy nail art design

Hello hello~ Having always admired Nailside's cloud design, I finally decided to give it a go awhile back. I love how simple it is to create, yet it gives off a much more challenging feel for it.

Pinky & Index: Three coats of OPI Parlez-vous OPI? I then applied a thin coat of Essence Make it golden before creating a gradient look with the larger glitters at the tips.

Middle finger: Three coats of Parlez-vous OPI? I then took Ulta3 snazzle to apply the silver, and finally OPI Thanks a windmillion for the green. Check out the link above to Nailside for a tutorial.

Fourth finger: Two coats of Thanks a windmillionOPI Servin' up sparkle was used to create the glitter gradient.

Thumb: Two coats of Thanks a windmillion, then snazzle and Parlez-vous OPI? for the cloud look.

As you can see, I alternated the colours on my right hand :)
