A Rainy Day Manicure

jica1 jica2 For me, usually, this time of year is all about pastel shades, with yellows and greens of fluffy chicks and spring shoots, but unfortunately round here, things have been rather grey. Brighton seems to have been stuck under a colossal cloud for the past week and a half, with the occasional bit of sun peeping through, but a distinct lack of blue sky and pretty colours. The lovely people at Jica very kindly sent me a little Easter nail care package, and as soon as I saw the shade they'd included, I knew the exact look I was going to create!

Usually around this time of year I turn my nails into pastel eggs or fluffy chicks, but this time I fancied something a little different, and I'm pleased to say I think I've come up with the easiest nail art ever. This 'Rainy Day' manicure is created using two shades and a top coat. The base shade is 'Granite' by INM, and looks lovely by itself as a chic 'greige' shade. All I did was splodge (technical term) some white polish over the top as fluffy clouds, and finished it off with INM's Wet Look Top Coat, which blended the layers together nicely. Both polishes were quick drying and I've been wearing this look for 5 days now without any major chips. You can find INM polish online at JICA.com.

Have you created any nail art looks lately? I'd love to see them!
