Crumpet's 33DC- Most Used Color

'ello, loves! Today's prompt for the 33 Day Challenge was a bit of a head scratcher. My most oft used color(s), especially as I've been doing challenges for the past 25 days, are obviously black and white. More specifically, Sinful Colors Black on Black and Revlon Speed Dry Spirit. The general concensus is to exclude black and white, and go for the next most used color. Still tricky, as I tend to go thorugh phases, using the same polish a few times over a couple of weeks, and then not again for months. This is also especially true for challenges. But I finally settled on something that works. 

The polishes that I reach for most often (when not doing nail art) tend to be pinks and greys. So I chose my current favorites of each (Sinful Colors Pink Forever and NYC Sidewalkers) and accented them with my favorite black and white (as told above). I decided to go with a cloud mani, which I have never done before. It's not really my favorite look, but after almost a month of challenge prompts already, and three more to go, I really feel the need to stretch my creativity and go outside my comfort zone. I also wanted to figure out the technique myself, rather than Googling tutorials, as it seems like something that doesn't really need a tutorial!

There was a bit of a shaky start, as I used the polish brushes and it took a few tries to get the technique down. But by the time I got to these two fingers- BAM! Nailed it :) At least, I think I did.
