Rainy Gray

We had a few really good rain storms come through last weekend, inspiring this week's manicure. It's very simple, as you can see - just China Glaze "Avalanche" for the base, and a silver Stripe Rite polish. I think it turned out quite well though - it's actually very elegant looking in person, though it was difficult to capture the color in photos. The one above was taken without a flash, the one below with.

I tried out the new polish rejuvenator (Renew drops) from Zoya on my thickened StripeRite...and I have to say, that stuff is amazing! Two drops, and the polish was flowing as good as new. I have several polishes that will be "usable" again due to that, which is very cool. Dare I hope I'll actually finish an entire bottle of nail polish eventually?
So...what's on your nails this week?

That is really a beautiful manicure. Love the silver stripes. The polish looks olive in the first photo. It really does look like rain hitting the window. Very pretty.

Oooh so metallic! I'm liking it very much. It also reminds of gray skies and rain.
