Nail Art Ideas Linkup - May - Clouds

Hi all!

Clouds... we have had plenty of those past week, mainly rain clouds. Though the last few days have been much nicer! Blue skies and sun in sight! Today I'm (again) combining this challenge with the MoYou 10K instagram challenge. Today's prompt is Fun. So how about some fun clouds?

Today's polishes:
  • NYC - 325 Raindrop
  • Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - 805 Resurrection
  • LynBDesigns - White Fang
  • Essence - Stampy polish black

And I used MoYou London Mother Nature (Landscape) 03 again, this time the swallows from the top center.

I bet everyone has looked at clouds and saw things in them. Wouldn't it be fun if clouds were always in funny shapes? Well they are on my nails today! My base is Raindrop (2 coats) and I dabbed some Resurrection and White Fang on top with a piece of sponge. This gives the sky a bit more depth. Using a dotting tool I created the shaped clouds, base is White Fang and I mixed it a tiny bit with Resurrection to get a bit of depth. My index fingernail is showing a tulip, my middle fingernail an elephant, there's an arrow on my ring finger and finally a sword on my pinky. Lastly I added some swallows with the black stamping polish and the image plate.

What's the funniest cloud shape you've seen? Tell me!

Check the other cloudy nails down in the linkup!


  1. Cute nails! I have that plate and keep meaning to use those swallows. They look perfect over your clouds :-)

    1. I've used them before as well, those plates are so versatile. This entire MoYou10K challenge has me using nearly all my plates (I wonder if I can sneak in the snowflake one) in different ways. I'm curious what you'd do with the swallows though!

  2. These nails are so cool! I love the different shaped clouds, neat idea :D

    1. Thanks! Sometimes I get an epiphany that works out well ;)
