Glitter Rain on Gray Nails

I think I might say this every time I paint my nails, but these are definitely my new favorite. Stolen straight from pinterest, I decided to try these nails and was so happy with how they turned out!

I used Essie's Cocktail Bling as the base (2 coats) then Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday for the glitter (best glitter polish ever). 

For the first coat of glitter I dabbed it along the top of my nails, making them almost like a glitter french manicure. Then for the second coat of glitter, I painted a little bit farther down on the nail, allowing the top part to become thicker with glitter and the bottom to have a more sparse glitter look to it. So easy and I love how they look! Makes me think of gray skies that are being invaded by glitter rain :)

They look pretty similar to my inspiration don't you think?? (I just need a better camera...)

Original source - The Nailasaurus. Such an awesome nail polish blog.

If it's raining where you are, I wish you glitter rain to brighten up your gray skies. It's supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees here today so I'll soak up the sun extra for you :)
