Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? Did you have a great weekend? I'd love to know what you got up to! I'm anticipating a pretty busy week. Sometimes I get a little flustered if I know I have a lot on, I think "Whenever will I get time to paint?!" Silly, I know. I don't need to panic. Chill, girl, chill! Do you ever feel like there's not enough time to get things done?
Today I am showing you a rainbow manicure (I know, I know, I'm like partly unicorn by this point) with a bit of a difference, I hope. I decided that...why not have a rainbow that goes round in a circle?! I don't know how easy this would be to do with nail polish, I don't think I'd even want to try that!
So I began with my usual base coat of OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dry applied two coats of NYC's 'Williamsburg Vintage' – a pretty good white. I then used my acrylic paints and my bamboo (He seems to get all the messy blending jobs) brush by painting a small grey dot to the center of each nail – from here I could then create a triangle/pizza slice shape from the dot and outwards to the tips. I did this with each colour on all my nails (Looked like a pin-wheel!) I then began mixing colours together and trying to blend out the solid triangles so that they created gradients.
I finished off by applying a single squared/diamond stud to the center of each nail and a coat of my Pro-FX top coat and lastly a little lick of Barry M's 'Matte' top coat.. because... well.. Don't you know me by now?! Hah.
I really like how these turned out. Its different, as I said before, I don't know how I would do this with nail polish. Does anyone know how it can be done? I didn't have it at the time but Catrice's 'Matte and More' top coat which I recently picked up would have added a beautiful sheen to it...darn!
What do you think of my circular prism-rainbow nails? Would you wear a manicure like this?
Have a gorgeous day, lets hang out again on Wednesday for some more Decal-fun. :)
