Guest Post - Nail Trend : Free Hand Cloud Nail Art (Tutorial)

This is a super duper ultra easy nail art to perform and all you need is your nail lacquers.

Excited? Here goes :

OPI My Private Jet

OPI Second Honeymoon

1. Paint a base coat and wait for about 3 minutes (Optional).

2. Paint a coat of polish colour of your choice over the entire nail. This will be your base colour.

3. Wait for it to dry completely. I waited for about 5 minutes as I only did 1 coat of the base colour.

4. Using your “cloud colour”, turn the brush sideways (if you are using OPI nail lacquer), starting at the corner of the nail, paint a strip down from the middle till the nail tip in one stroke.

5. Paint another strip right beside the first strip but this time round, start a couple mm shorter than the first one.

6. Repeat step 5 with each strip you paint slightly shorter than the previous one.

7. Each nail will only require 3-4 strips.

8. End your look with a top coat (Optional).

SIDENOTE : I’m using OPI Second Honeymoon as base colour and OPI My Private Jet as “cloud” colour.

Variations :
Paint a couple of layers of “clouds instead of just one (which is what I did here) or do an experiment with the colours. Mix around with other colours and you may get something you’d really love.

There you go. Simple free hand cloud nail art look complete.
