31DC2014: Inspired by a Song

Inspired by a song - there are so many options that I didn't know where to start and I just wasn't feeling it this year, but in the end I did a mani that I've wanted to try for a while. Rain drops using gel polish.

There are plenty of songs about the rain, so I'm not going to pick just one.

Rather than making this a dark and stormy rain mani, I went with a spring shower theme. As such I did a soft blue gradient for the background.  I then added some white and grey clouds at the top. To create the rain drops, I used a dotting tool and dotted on some elongated dots to look like drips.
I then cured them under the UV lamp.  I did this three times to really build up some depth in the rain drops. 

This mani was interesting to look at and and fun to wear, cause I kept playing with the tops of my nails to feel the smooth lumpy texture.
