31 Day Challenge, day 9: Rainbow


Day 9! This time the challenge was to make rainbow nails. I was looking really forward to this challenge, even though I knew it was going to be challenging indeed. In the end I came up with this very simple look with colored strokes. Basically I used the technique I also use to make my cloud manis, only using a different color with each stroke. I really like the end result, all the colors together make me so happy! Maybe also because they remind me of a box full colored pencils. :3
If you like this look, I hope you try it out yourself too. It's a quite easy way to create that oh-so-lovely rainbow effect. ^^ Thanks for reading!

Polishes I used over China Glaze Snow:
Essence - Beauty On Tour
H&M - Peach Me Soon
Color Club - Almost Famous
Catrice - ACid DC
Safari - #100
Essence - Via Airmail!
China Glaze - Gothic Lolita
Essence - Sending You Kisses

    Is the orange on your pinkie the same as the one on your index finger? I've been a little obsessed with finding orange nail polishes haha.

    1. Yes, it is! I don't have acces to all my polishes at the moment, so I used a pastel instead of a brigth orange, but it seemed to work out well. ^^

  31. Just attempted this gorgeous mani but got less-than-gorgeous results LOL. Not as easy as it looks. I'm pretty okay with tape manis and strokes but my nails are ridiculously curved; pointing my fingers at my face, they're basically half-circles, so the polish either kept dripping down the sides or I couldn't see the far sides to know what I was doing. Also, the curve means more surface area to cover, so i wasn't getting your nice, narrow strokes. Sigh.

    Once I get the excess polish off, though, I think they're okay. I just won't be showing anyone the real deal here LOL.

    Girl, you are so talented.
