“Cloud Nails” Are Trending For Winter — & They’re So Dreamy

Whether you're daydreaming out the window of your flight back home after a long time away or finally reaching the clearing at the end of a strenuous hike, there's nothing quite like the reflective, one-with-the-world feeling of elevation. That same indescribable sense of bliss is also the perfect inspiration for the first nail art trend of the new decade: cloud nails.

The design concept recently came to us by way of nail artist Alicia Torello, who says clouds are everywhere right now. "It seems like everyone's wearing and posting soft, dreamy nail art," she explains of the emerging trend. "My favorite interpretations pair light colors, like baby blue or sunset pink, with white ombré cloud shapes and playful star accents."

Ahead, our favorite examples of the chicest (and dreamiest) cloud manicures on Instagram.

To get this look, Torello applied light blue polish with a sponge to create the ombré effect, then used the same technique to dab the white clouds over top before finishing it off with freehand emoji-like stars.
If baby pink is more your speed, use the romantic tone as a base, then add your white cloud orbs over top.
More is more with nail trends: Blend your crisp white clouds with tie-dyed marble blending and sparkles.
A translucent jelly finish makes a cloud design feel almost lifelike.
For the most delicate take, etch on just a few faint clouds, so they're barely detectable unless you're up close.
A visual reminder that even when life gets you down, there's always a silver lining.
