Let Your Nails Bring Some Sunshine This Rainy Season
It’s officially the rainy season what with the constant downpour we get no matter the time of day. The weather is dark and dreary most of the time, but that aint any excuse for you to paint your nails a perennial black all throughout the wet season. Add a bit of oomph to your usual nail color with these five pretty hues or nail art:
Whatever the season, red will always be a good color on your nails. Find the right shade that will work with your skin tone, and voila! Instant pretty nails.
Ok, so it may look like you’re trying to be a 90’s kid AF, but doesn’t anything neon instantly brighten up your day?
Ink Your Nail
If you’re not that keen on using glow in the dark, neon colors, you can opt for a metallic hue. Still shiny but not as loud. It’s an instantaneous way to accessorize your hands. Classy, chic and glamorous even if it’s all rainy outside.
Love light shades? A soft shade of pink will do wonders for your nails. This is also another color that’s safe to wear no matter the season or weather. Neutral yet will go well with any look you decide on.
If you really must go for a nail polish color that goes with the rainy weather, try the light grayish-green hue of Sage. Definitely not black but subtle and “dreary” enough to match the raindrops outside your window. This one’s very pretty on the hands, actually.
