Freehand Acrylic Rainbows With Teeny Stars!

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.
Love
Ithi

  1. For some reason this design reminds me of like the album cover for a 90s pop band. I'm not sure why that association popped into my head- probably the black combined with the rainbow, and the little stars remind me of the circles in the middle of a CD. In any case, I love the happy vibe of this mani!

    They are amazing. And if there's a shiny and a matte version of something, I always prefer the shiny one! :D
