Tutorial: Cloud Nails

I did some cloud nails for a nail challenge I was doing last year and someone asked for a tutorial. Cloud nails are very simple to do, and look more complicated than they are.

What do I need?
Two or three polishes (I used Yes Love - K033, Color Club - Pucci-licious)
Top Coat

1) Paint your base polish coat
2) Using a different polish, paint three 'clouds'
3) Using your base polish (or third polish) paint three 'clouds' leaving a small amount of second polish showing.
4) Top coat the nail art

I did originally try and do a tutorial on my nails but the colours I chose maybe weren't the best for showing the technique;

2) Using a different polish, paint three 'clouds' [A England - Lady of the Lake]

Here are a couple of other colour ways I have used using the cloud nail technique;

I think the cloud nails idea came originally from NailSide, if you know different do let me know.

  1. This is one of my favorite manicure patterns and you're right it's soo easy to do. The first time I saw it was on the blog Nailside too. That was years ago. As you've shown it looks great in any range of colors.
