Rainy day nail art tutorial

It has been raining a lot lately~ I got inspired by the rain and made this nail art ^__^ hope you like it! Btw. it might be disturbing that the lighting is different on the pictures =.=" sorry about that, I tried to get the same lighting on every picture, but the weather was a bit weird that day =(. Anyways, click on the link below to read the whole tutorial for this nail art.
Step 1: Apply a base coat and wait for it till it dries.
Step 2: Apply a grey nail polish on your nails. I've used a nail polish from Catrice; London's Weather Forecast #280. The color is blue/greyish as you can see on the picture. 1 layer is enough ;). After you've applied it, let it dry.
Step 3: Make clouds (see picture) by putting 6 dots with your dotting pencil and fill it in.
Step 4: Apply glitters, avoid the clouds and fill in the grey spaces with glitters. You can see that it doesn't look smooth, so you have to apply a top coat when the glitter nail polish is dry.
Step 5: Apply a top coat, let it dry and you're done ;).
I have used the following nail polishes...
- Step 1: Base coat from HEMA, a Dutch store.
- Step 2: Catrice; London's weather forecast #280
- Step 3: Essence dotting pencil (pink) and Dear'Lee white nail polish.
- Step 4: Essence Multi dimension 3 in 1 nail polish and Essence nail art twins, glitter topper #02 julia
- Step 5: Top coat from Essie- 3 in one glaze

  13. @Man teng, in totaal een half uur voor beide handen? Het wachten totdat het helemaal uitgedroogd is duurt lang, niet de nail art xD. Maar meestal duurt 't bij mij wel langer omdat ik foto's maak =.= lighting sucks hier =(
