Challenge Your Nail Art: April Showers

I'm very happy that this month, the Challenge Your Nail Art group, led by the lovely Jessica of Be Happy and Buy Polish, had a round of prompts based on blue!


I love blue - it's one of my favorite colors ^_^  And I knew instantly what I wanted to do for this first prompt!  You all know how much I adore doing freehand silhouettes, so it's probably no surprise to you that I did that here:


I used Pahlish's "Light Upon the Water" bespoke as the base color, and painted rain streaks using "Jackson" by 77 Nail Lacquer, and "Island Waters" by Gothic Gala Lacquers.


I freehanded the silhouette, and I left it a bit ambiguous on purpose - is it a little girl?  A woman?  A man in a trenchcoat?  A child in a rainslicker?  You decide :)
