manicure march day 11 - cloud nail art

today's post is inspired by a fab tutorial i watched on youtube over the weekend by the lovely and amazing nail artist missjenfabulous. this cloud nail art was so simple thanks to her fab instructions. to create this look i first painted essie mint candy apple, warning lots of essie polishes featured in this post, all over the nail as my base colour. i decided to use all pastel colours for this design as they looked great sat next to each other on my shelf so i thought they would look even better on the nails together :) then using essie lilacism, a new favourite, i painted 3 lines starting just below the cuticle and going further towards the end of the nail with each one. then using essie madison ave-hue i repeated the step starting closer to the middle of the nail to create the pastel gradient cloud effect :) i love the look of these nails, i got to use loads of lovely colours and create simple to do fab to look at nail art :D
