Nails of the day: Cloudy Sky

By  |  21 Comments

I lovee love the way Konad stamps make nails go from cute to ‘omg awesome how did you do that?!?’. The problem is that I’m lazy and they can take a little time and energy, especially if you mess up!
I was bored the other day and since I had just put on OPI’s What’s with the Cattitude? polish, which looks just like a bright blue sky to me, I thought it’d be super cute with some clouds across them.

I used OPI’s What’s With the Cattitude? and topped it with OPI Breathe Life so it had a more shimmery look, then used Konad stamp m79 with the Konad white special polish to create the clouds :)

    Sarah, I have it on my toes right now and on some toes it looked fine in 2 coats but it was a little patchy on others so I ended up using 3.

    LEESHA!! I have been watching your videos for a while now and you always share great products and tips, so I wanted to share one with you. I found a nail color that you will probably adore! I’m sure your followers suggest things to you all the time but if you try just one thing make it this. China Glaze in “Flying Dragon”. It is simply addicting! It drys a pretty purple matte. But if you put a clear coat on top then its a whole different color, its a bright purple with a bluish glitter shine. It looks really neat with black konad prints too. =)

    i LUV this look it is so cute… but you actually don’t have to buy a stamper they make skinny nail art brushes… i have some that i got at walmart… they are from the brand KISS it came with three colors black, white, and silver glitter… they are gorgeous and only $6.00 plus they work fantasticly i luv them so much btw they also come with litte reusable sticker stencils it was a pretty good deal and plz look for them at walmart and do a first impression on them. i would definately reccomend them if you can find a stamper like me btw i absolutely luv ur hair ur beautiful and don’t let anybody tell u ur not… have a wonderful day and stay u cuz there isn’t anybody better :)
    with love ur fan mady <3

    I did this look but with a dotting tool and I used What’s With the Cattitude? but with the Northern Lights Hologram top coat in silver. It was pretty hard to paint my dominant hand but it worked out to my liking.
