Delightful nails dressed as summer skies are the manicure trend du jour. If it wasn’t evident already, the latest nail art trend is more proof that most trends this season center around the theme of escapism. After dainty florals and fruit-and-veggie print manis, puffy clouds are the newest addition to the cottagecore aesthetic that is now taking over the nail art world. The gorgeous swirls of white and blue are easily one of the most enchanting and intricate polish trends to ever hit our Instagram feeds.
Dreamy white clouds embossed on sky-blue bases mimic bright sunny skies, but there are several ways to transform your tips with this concept. A single cloud printed on a transparent or blue background is the minimalist way to go about the trend. Colored french tips featuring fluffy clouds are also massively popular. For the daring ones, there are absolutely no rules. Prefer to go for a more imaginative print? Manicurists are also imprinting whimsical cotton candy skies and Insta-worthy sunset scenes on nails. Add a touch of fantasy by opting for clouds hovering over pastel pink, powder blue, and lilac backdrops. If you’re looking to make a statement, floaty clouds stamped on nails dipped in tie-dye or marble prints promise to make you stand out.
