Allo polish Pals!
Happy New Year from this side! (I said it before the new year.. so I get to say it again, right?!)
Did you have a quiet New Years Eve at home or did you celebrate with a bang? It was pretty quiet here for us but we stayed up until midnight, the fireworks in the streets were insane. It was actually the first noise I heard in the morning and it carried on even the day after! There is so much rubbish laying around outside, tsk..
This manicure comes from 2016... I kept pushing it back for some reason.
You may remember sometime ago last year I made a rainbow prism manicure. I basically put a pizza slice of each colour of the rainbow on my nail and painstakingly blended them all together. I liked the result but it was incredibly time consuming. It didn't stop me from trying it again though! I added something simple to it, but I like it!
I think you'll agree that it is a simple addition, in all honesty I didn't want to go covering up too much of the rainbow because..well.. rainbow!!
For this manicure I began with my fave base coat, Mezmris Nail Lacquer's 'Armor Up' which was dry within the blink of an eye. I then applied two coats of very old gloopy Barry M 'White'. I added a thin coat of Pro-FX top coat to create a nice smooth barrier to paint on. As I mentioned earlier, I created this by painting solid triangles of each rainbow colour, it looked like some kind of maths chart! I then blended each of the colours to blend them into their neighbouring colour. I finished off by adding a thin black board and a little star in the center of each nail for an unusual look.
I seal it all in with my Mezmris Nail Lacquer top coat, Armor. Finally, not because I had to..but just for fun I had a look at what this looks like matte. I think I prefer it!
What do you guys think, do you like these sorts of manicures? Do you prefer the glossy or matte version?
I hope you all have a wonderful day! let me know in the comments what you are up to!
Thank you for visiting, I'll see you again on Wednesday.
