Kiss The Rain

If you're a 90s teenager you immediately related to this title - if not, you can always check what I mean here.

The weather's been pretty much on the rainy side these past few days and I was on a embrace-it-all mood :)

As I was searching for something simple for today's mani, I thought: why not cute clouds and some falling down the sky rain bits?

So, here's how my nail looked for the day:





I warned you it'd be a simple yet cute one :)
AND it took me no longer than 25min to be finished - which sometimes, and as much as I love nail arting, feels like a quite welcome breath of fresh air!




I started it all with two coats of lovely Kiko Gray (328).
I love how hazy this polish looks - know what I mean? It's like it emits an aura and I find it my nails look gorgeous with it! Or maybe I embrace the cloudy weather a bit too much ;)




I then took my white polish (Bellaoggi Snow White) and added the shape of the clouds on all nails.
While I waited for that to dry, I dotted the rainy bits - which look more like snow flakes, I know, but they're cute nonetheless :D




To finish it all I added some light and dark blue to each cloud, using the watercolour technique, to give it a 'fluffy' look.
Because I wanted the clouds to maintain the white outline, so I just coloured the 'clouds' insides' ;)



It felt good to enjoy the evening doing something else different than nail art <3
Don't get me wrong - I do love it! - but I felt like going to the movies with BF and this was the perfect quick mani: simple & cute :D


Let me know what you think of these and hope you're managing the Autumn-y weather in a relaxed way, such as myself ;)


Hugs & Kissies,

  2. I think I might have some gaps in my childhood, because I have never heard this song. But it's lovely and I am listening to it right now :)
    Your clouds are gorgeous! I love the dimension you added with different shades of blue and white. Lovely and simple :) Enjoy your night at the movies sweetie :*
