NOTD: Rain Drop Effect with OPI Give Me the Moon

Posted on: June 17, 2013

Give Me the Moon from OPI Night Brights collection of 2007. I love this baby blue polish. It was easy to apply, it seems like it might be a frost but it is not, nor is it a cream. Give Me the Moon falls somewhere in between. I just love it, a big Thank You to my friend CoCo for sending this one to me, she said it didn’t work with her skin tone and I couldn’t be happier about that! I know I will wear this a ton this summer. I give this polish 5/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I also thought the light blue would make a good back drop for the rain drop effect for your nails. After wearing this a couple of days I then added a matte topcoat.

The next step was to use a quick dry topcoat to make the “raindrops”. I used Seche-Vite for this. I added a blob of SV to a piece of paper and used a tooth pick to make the rain drops.

That was how this rain drop effect was achieved. What do you think? Like it or no?
To be honest with you, I think this rain drop effect would look better on a tad darker color, maybe Blue Moon from Wet n Wild Wild Shines would be a more appropriate color. My favorite look of Give Me the Moon?

Very pretty.I have never seen a Rain Drop nail before,it’s cool!Linda xo


That rain drop effect is so cool! Think I should try this sometime πŸ™‚
And I have Give Me The Moon too and consider it to be some of my treasures. It’s lovely πŸ™‚


What a neat idea! I haven’t seen this application before. It must be fun to wear. Have you had some interesting comments? They really look wet.


Yes, I think next time I do this I will do accent nails, it looks pretty it it’d be pretty on 1-2 nails too! Thanks for the comment


I really like GMtM, it is such a pretty, spring/summery lady like color. I know I’ll wear the heck out of it. What do you think of the rain drop effect on a darker color? Better or no? I’m going to try it soon but on accent nails only this time, it was a bit much on all 10!


How about a teal shade? That would look amazing πŸ™‚


You’re so right! I know just the one, I’ll post if it turns out and probably even if it doesn’t! Ha! Your friend Judi

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
