Kawaii Cloud Skies Nails

Hey there ma peeps!! I'm on my half term break (thank goodness) and I'm hopping off to London so hopefully I'll have nice stories from that!! Today I have a cute sky scene nail art look and not gonna lie I love it. I think this is the first cloud design I've ever done and I wanted to make it cool (read: cute). Also 500th post!! That's a lot of posts, let's call it an achievement :)

Once I realised how perfect Asscher Blue is as a sky blue base I got to work on the cute clouds. For variety I made the clouds white and pastel and of course I needed a neon rainbow. That's where it's at. So after all the elements, I think it shaped out pretty sweet. Cause neon rainbow. And clouds are cute and blushing.

I used the brushes of the polish for the clouds and the polishes being pretty opaque it was easy to do. Details I did with a black nail art pen and toothpicks like usual. For the rainbow it was the same kind of deal except I changed my mind about which colours to use about a million times so some rejected colours were Etude House - No. 60 (I actually had to scrape that off and repaint), No. 7 - Me! Me! Me!, OPI - Charged Up Cherry, Rimmel - It's a Scorcher!, Rimmel - Sunshine and Barry M - Greenberry. But I painted over them so they contributed so shoutout to them :P
