April Showers

Rain has been creeping up here in MN, so this was my homage to the weather.  I have a love/hate relationship with rain, but I currently am fond of it and the fact that it is bringing spring and it washed away the snow.  Buds are on the trees again, things are sprouting in my garden and a things are starting over again.  So although rain can be dark and dreary, I wanted to think about how happy rain can be and the end result was a manicure that I LOVE!!!! 







The base color of the manicure is Essie's Chinchilly and I coated over it with OPI Sonic Bloom to get a green/gray sky effect.  I then sponged China Glaze White On White and Orly's Mirror Mirror for the clouds.  I then used a loose, oblong glitter from Cina (applied with a clear polish from Orly) and topped the manicure with a coat of Seche Vite.

Very very pretty! I think I could maybe handle this one. The long glitter is a neat effect!
