Little April Showers

 Good morning, dearies!

Today's mani is inspired by the weather and my umbrella :)  Last week we finally got some "April Showers" in the OC.  It was more like a drizzle, just enough to make my white Jetta look terrible lol.  So I thought, "What the hey!  I'll do an umbrella!."  It is my most favoritest umbrella from my most favoritest store... Target!!  :D


Julep, Meryl, Dendrie, clous, rain, rain drops  April Showers, umbrella, polka dots, gloomny, nails, nail art, nail design, mani

There were a lot of polishes used in this mani and because I did it last week and can't remember them all :\  But, at a glance, I know the base color is 2 coats of Julep Meryl.  I topped that with one thin coat of Revlon Calla Lilly to give it a little shimmer.  The clouds are Julep Dendrie and the raindrops are JLB Aruba Blue.  The Umbrella is my go-to Rimmel Black Satin.  As for the rest... your guess is as good as mine!  ;)
 

The day after I did these, there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  I felt a little silly with this on my nails haha.  Today I wake up and it's gloomy again!  Go figure...


I think I like this one :)

In new news, I want let you know that I am planning on doing both the Hobby Polish Bloggers Challenge and The Crumpet's Tri Polish Challenge for the month of May.  My Jimminy Cricket is telling me this isn't such a good idea, but I hardly ever listen to him :P   I still have some product reviews to get out as well so stay tuned!

Until next time!

    1. You're right, i started with my dotting tool and made my dots. I then went back with a small brush and dabbed another drop on top of the dot and slightly dragged the polish to a point. it was a little painstaking but well worth it haha :)
