Hello Kitty designs have made their way onto nails! OPI offers this how-to (plus a video!) on how to re-create these super cute nails decorated with fluffy clouds and rainbow tips.

These "Clouds and Rainbow" nails by OPI are created with a few simple steps using the Hello Kitty nail polish collection.

STEP 1: Apply Natural Nail Base Coat. Let dry.
STEP 2: Apply 2 coats of Super Cute in Pink on all but the ring finger.
STEP 3: Apply 2 coats of Look at my Bow! on the ring finger.
STEP 4: Paint Spoken From the Heart (top) My Pal Joey (bottom) on a dense makeup sponge.
STEP 5: Sponge on to pointer and middle finger. Repeat 2-3 times allowing time to dry in between.
STEP 6: Clean up excess on skin with a brush dipped in lacquer remover.
STEP 7: Using a dotting tool and Milky Bottle, create cloud shapes over the gradient nails. Let dry.
STEP 8: With a nail art brush, paint a thin arch with Spoken From the Heart across the tip of your nail.
STEP 9: Creating a rainbow french tip, repeat this step three times with 5 Apples Tall, My Twin Mimmy and My Pal Joey.
STEP 10: Let dry completely.
