Swirly Freehand Acrylic-Rainbows and Tiny Stars!

Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? Did you have a good weekend?
Mine was crazy busy, on Saturday we went to Mr Bravo's nephew's second birthday party. It was lovely watching him rip open his gifts with the excitement only a two year old knows!

Then around 3.30pm we boarded a bus in the Spijkenisse centrum which took us to Amsterdam where we watched a concert by a band called 'De Toppers' – they are a Dutch tribute band that do all sorts of songs both in Dutch and English. It was SO much fun but we didn't get home until 3-3.30 am and honestly it's killed me a little! I am not used to these late nights, haha. If you were around on Instagram you may have seen me go live :)

Today I have another design once again prompted by the weekly challenge over on TinyCanvas. I feel like I've had a lot of practice with this particular theme.. RAINBOW!!! 

So for this nail art I decided I was going to do another acrylic-gradient. Highly time consuming, mostly relaxing with a smidgen of frustration.. but always a delight come the end I find. This basically means painting each colour one by one with a paint and mixing paints to blend the colours through to the next.

I found trying to do a swirlier acrylic-gradient a whole new challenge. No lie, it probably took longer than my usual ones!

For this manicure I began with my OPI base coat, 'Nail Envy' and once dry applied one thin coat of Barry M's 'White' nail polish. Once this was dry I then added a thin coat of my PRO-FX top coat to create a nice smooth barrier for my paints to sit on top. Next came the 2-3 hour process of blending (attempting) those babies together!

What do you think of this manicure? Do you like rainbow nails or do you prefer to stick to just a few colours?

Have a beautiful day, my friends. Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll catch you again on Wednesday for some more nail art fun!
