Let's call this the irregular sea foam sponging technique!
VIDEO TUTORIAL AT THE END OF THE POST!
I introduced the use of sea foam sponges (also referred to as 'silk sponges) in my nail art in a post where I created irregular pink clouds and then added a treeline silhouette. A couple weeks later I used the same irregular cloud look using the sea foam sponges in a dark and evil lightning mani. I really like working with these sponges because they are fun (random!) and because the end result is always a different surprise.
You can find these sponges at your local craft store. I rip them up into smaller pieces and use a small edge/corner to sponge on paint in a targeted area.
Does this nail art look somewhat familiar? If it does that mean you've watched my nail care regimen video on YouTube, yay! This mani was the featured star applying all kinds of lotions and oils that I discuss at length on my new Nail Care page.
