It's a wonderful fresh morning, the sun is out and there are a few light clouds, let's hope the sun stays out. Last week we had lots of rain (come on summer!) which brings me onto today's mani - Clouds.
This isn't about painting your nails with fluffy white clouds, it's a term used for creating a scalloped tip, usually 3 colours. The scallops being the edge of the cloud rather than the whole cloud. It's also a great method for reviving an old mani when the tips have chipped or worn. No special tools or equipment needed.
With your nails already painted your base colour, apply the 2nd colour in 3 strokes, it's just the same as painting a coat of polish except for starting half way down your nail with each stroke lower than the previous.
Wait for the 2nd colour to dry and repeat with a 3rd colour and seal with top coat.
The colours I used are all from the Mark Gel Shine range, Sweet Pea, Just Beachy & Sapphired Up
