There's plenty of full colour manis coming your way later this week, but I'm starting with a typical English summer's day - ie, a hint of blue sky through the grey clouds and generally a bit of rain thrown in...
I started with a base of soft grey using Color Club Silver Lake and then sponged on LA Colors French White, Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau and a hint of Ciate Vintage to create the cloudy sky. I topped with OPI Matte top coat and once fully dry, I added drips of Seche Vite, which dried over the matte top coat to create the rain drops.
I love this one! It was a lot less subtle in real life, but hey ho, them's the breaks sometimes. I recreated it on my real nails (they're still refusing to grow btw) and got so many compliments. I'm looking forward to trying it again with a "stormier" sky - I just need to wait for the Autumn themes to start coming around ;)
I will be back with something decidedly more colourful for you tomorrow. Until then, please check out all of the other fabulous summer manis by the DD ladies by following the links below :)
