#MonthlyMani: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

About 3 years ago, I went on my first nail art journey. It was cloud nails (see below!). Have you tried cloud nails? I feel like I say this every month, but this is the easiest and looks so fancy! I broke out a couple greens and a purple for a little tribute to one of the most fun holidays there is:

Here are the steps:

1. Paint a base coat any color you choose, just like normal. I chose purple!

2. Using the angle of the brush, make three lines in your second color, making each one a little longer than the first one. I stick with three, but if you have giant hands maybe try four? πŸ™‚

Here’s what that looks like:

Now after that dries, pick a third shade. Basically just trace the same lines you made with the 2nd shade, but leave a little of the 2nd shade showing. Trust me, it doesn’t have to be perfect to look impressive. Mine certainly aren’t, and I received a few nice compliments on them already!
