Manicure Monday: Clouds

Ever since I went to have nail art at WAH Nails for my birthday, I've been obsessed with trying to recreate some of the designs I had done. I've already tackled leopard print (here) and next on my list is the supercute clouds design. Luckily I paid attention during my WAH visit and figured I could probably pull this off myself, but just to be sure I hit up a couple of YouTube tutorials too. Research done, time for the practical test.

I applied two coats of Models Own Baby Blues for the base then let it dry. Then I put some Barry M Matt White onto a piece of cellophane and used a nail art dotting tool to create the clouds. After doing a 'practice' cloud on the cellophane I was good to go. So off I went and it was SO EASY, literally just dotting about the white polish to look cloud-like, then finishing with a clear top coat. Take a look:


I found the nail art tools on Amazon for only £2 so snapped them up immediately. There are five different sizes and I used the biggest one here which was perfect for my purposes.

  2. Cute! Cute! Cute!! These are so dreamy... pun not intended. I love the idea of these tools, I used a paintbrush once and ruined it because I couldn't get the nail varnish out... whoops, some ideas should just stay in my head.
