Creative musings in bright colors

Distant Clouds

Initially, this was going to have more teal and less blue-and-white, and look more like shells than clouds. But here we are, and I rather like it!


The base is one of my new Zoyas, a pale green called Tiana. My guess is they named it after the outfit of the newish Disney princess, cause it’s the right shade! Anyway, I love it. Pale green with a hint of mint. This is 2-3 coats (only one nail needed 3). It didn’t self-level as well as I would have liked, but it is a pastel so that isn’t surprising.


Once Tiana was dry, I did a mostly-Zoya gradient from white to dark blue, and then stamped over everything with the darkest blue. I was initially going to use white, but I like the way the dark blue looked in my mind, so I ran with it!


~ White: Salon Perfect – Sugar Cube
~ Light green: Zoya – Tiana
~ Teal: Zoya – Cecilia
~ Blue: Zoya – Sia
~ Stamp: Born Pretty – L003


That’s all! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
