Create a sky-blue manicure with clouds in 3 simple steps

The heavens are always a source of inspiration, so if you find yourself staring up at the sky, you’ll probably enjoy this manicure. Aside from its simplicity, these glittery blue nails are both cheerful and pretty.
Start by creating a glittery blue base, and then add clusters of clouds using white nail gel and the dotting tool. Each cloud is made up of four to six dots. If you don’t have blue glitter polish, feel free to substitute any shade of blue that makes you happy. The sky’s the limit!

I love side braids. There's something super chic about the way they lay down the head and across the shoulder. The look is a little softer than some more traditional plaits.
