I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to update the blog lately, so I apologize for that. These nails are from May, so even though I’m posting in June, I’m filing this under last month.
I really felt like doing a rainbow gradient across just the tips of my nails, so I had to pull out a whole arsenal of polishes for this one. Pictured below from left to right are the following colors:
OPI- Privacy Please
Sephora by OPI- Curve-aceous
Sephora by OPI- Cab Fare
Formula X for Sephora- Danger Zone
Confetti- Ice Ice Baby
Sephora by OPI- Gleek Out
Sephora by OPI- Who Let the Dorks Out?
Formula X for Sephora- Hyped
I tried to pick polishes with shimmer in them so that the overall look would be more unified.
I started out by painting my nails with a nude color base. You can opt to only do the gradient if you have nice looking nail beds, but I wanted to even out the tone.
Using a small sponge, I applied dabs of each color in rainbow order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Each nail has 2 colors on it starting with red on my thumb and ending in purple on my pinky.
I wanted my rainbow to have some more sparkle, so I added a stroke of Ice Ice Baby, an iridescent glitter, to the top half of each nail.
Finally I took craft smart Acrylic Paint in White and drew in a few lines with a striping brush to draw two lines across the tip of each nail. I made little note heads with a dotting tool and painted in the stems with a detail brush.
I think it’s pretty and represents what a colorful part music plays in our lives.
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? 😉
