  1. Step 1 1

    Start by painting your nails with a light pink nail polish

  2. Step 2 2

    Apply a layer of rainbow glitter nail polish over the pink.

  3. Step 3 3

    Using a nail art brush and a blue nail polish, create a curved line at the bottom right corner of your nail.

  4. Step 4 4

    Repeat the previous step using the rest of the colors of this rainbow (green, yellow, red). The red arc will be the largest.

  5. Step 5 5

    Using a dotting tool and a white nail polish, make a few clusters of dots on every nail except the ring fingers. These will create clouds.

  6. Step 6 6

    Using the same method, create a few clouds at the base of the rainbow.

  7. Step 7 7

    Finally, apply a top coat to your nails to seal in the design.
