I described what I did to create the cloudy background in yesterday's post, but to recap:
I did a regular make-up sponge gradient with two Essie colours, then sponged on one Charlotte Russe polish to outline the clouds but with a seafoam sponge, then proceeded to sponge on mixed acrylic paints in various tones of pink, purple and red in a random and irregular manner with the same seafoam sponge. I painted the treeline with black acrylic paint and a super crappy cut-down craft store brush that was fraying, although this probably worked for this mani because the tips of the tree branches are naturally frayed-looking anyways. A rare occasion where a shitty paint brush actually works.
Full photo inspiration shot:
- Charlotte Russe - has no name!
- Essie 'Boom boom room' (bubblegum pink creme)
- Essie 'DJ play that song' (purple orchid creme)
- Acrylic paints (purple, red, black, white not pictured)
