Good morning! Ever have a downright gloomy day? My mood was matching the craptacular weather earlier this week and I decided to embrace the gloom with my nails.
Behold the storm cloud holo gradient! I started with a base of ILNP “Fame” and sponged on a gradient of “Fame” and Colors by Llarowe “That Bloo is Mine!” and an inky purple “Oops” polish from a mystery bag.
On the accent nail, I only did a gradient of Fame and That Bloo is Mine, so the cloud design would stand out. I used Love Angeline’s cloud vinyls and the CbL Oops to finish off the look. All in all, I think this worked pretty well! The gradient is a bit rough, but I was kind of aiming for that (also I was having a bad day and “rough” expressed things pretty well).
Although I’ve been blogging a while, I think this is one of the first times I’ve really used nail art to express myself when I was feeling down. It’s a bit of a new and strange experience for me, especially sharing them now. Also, it’s a little odd that my nail art inspired by my grumpy mood far outlasted the mood itself.

holo gradients are so underdone and so wonderful.
I’m glad that your nail art outlasted your gloomy feelings! It’s a beautiful manicure! It’s going to be rainy season here soon, so I’ll probably be doing something similar to this after a month of no sun.
This is gorgeous! I can imagine how amazingly sparkly it would be in the sun in real life.
Oh man, this mani makes me miss Washington ❤ So gorgeous!!!!
All that sparkle and not even in the sun!? Dang it must be holo heaven.
I’m one of the weirdos that loves rainy weather. I think this is lovely, not gloomy at all.
Sorry you’re gloomy, that gradient is fantastic though.
