The 4 Elements: Air

I am so excited about this post. I have collaborated with three amazing beauty bloggers Sam from Little Beauty Buddha, Daisy from Cava with Daisy and Kate from Lead with the Hips to bring you four different posts inspired by the elements.  When the girls have uploaded their posts I will be sure to edit this post to link them all so you can read them too, but for now I suggest you check out their blogs, they all post really fantastic product reviews and beauty looks.

I was allocated air and I immediately wanted to do a nail look.

After a base coat, I used two coats of Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Blueberry.

Once that was dry, I trimmed a cosmetic sponge so that it was a small, manageable size. I soaked the sponge in water and then squeezed off any excess. This helps prevent the sponge absorbing too much nail polish.

I then painted a small amount of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails French White Tip polish in Natural White onto the sponge. I dabbed at random spots on my nails to create a cloud effect. I let this dry and went over some of the spots so that some ‘clouds’ look denser than others. I think this looks more natural.

I then finished with a clear top coat.

Let me know what you think!
