Mani Monday: An Umbrella Manicure


When rainy days hit, brighten things up with this fun (and easy) DIY umbrella manicure. Follow the steps below to create your own.

What You’ll Need:

The How-To:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of the grey polish and let dry completely.
  2. Below the tip of the nail, use the black nail pen to make the umbrella – draw multiple “W” shapes from left to right, then fill it in.
  3. Continuing with the black nail pen, draw a backwards “J” for the handle.
  4. Place a dot of blue nail polish on a piece of scrap paper.
  5. Dip the tip of the mechanical pencil into the polish and sporadically place dots on the nail to create the look of rain drops.
  6. Finish with a clear top coat.
