Channel a Calmer Mindset With These Cloud Nail Art Ideas
With everything that 2021 has thrown our way, we’re hanging onto peaceful moments wherever we can find them and bringing them into 2022. Cloud nail art is filling our social media feeds, and we can’t help but feel calm whenever we see a new manicure with the dreamy design. Whether you want to DIY the look, need inspiration for your next nail appointment or simply scrolling for the good vibes, we gathered our favorite cloud nail art manis ahead.

Clear Blue Skies 

This nail art look reminds us of a sunny, summer afternoon so of course, we’re into it. If you’re looking to recreate it at home, try using Essie You Do Blue. It’s a perfect shade match for Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year and will give you all the clear sky feels.

Dreamy Acrylics 

If you’re team acrylics, rest assured you can take part in this nail trend. We love this manicure created by @mjnailz. Between the soft lilac-pink shade and iridescent swirls, plus the addition of jewels, we can’t help but smile.

A Soft, Simple Mani

If you love a soft, simple manicure, you can’t go wrong with this look created by @karanailedit. The natural base polish allows the clouds to be the star of the show without looking overwhelming.

A Glitter-filled Goodnight


This sparkling manicure reminds us of a dreamy, cloudy night. We love how @ricekittynails combined two nail trends in one: lucite nails and cloud designs.

An Ombré So Good

An ombré design can take any look to the next level, including cloud nail art. While you can choose any two colors you want, we love this light purple and blue combination for a calming vibe.
