Howdy! Today brings us Rainbow Nails. I've done a few different variations of rainbows since I got into nail art, so I wanted to do something a little different than your standard "unicorn" rainbow of colors. I also wanted something sparkly, so I come up with...wait for it...The Glitter Skittles Rainbow Manicure! Ha! I just love the way that sounds :) I also thought I might called it The Dark Side of the Rainbow...but Glitter Skittles is more fun to say. Here's a photo!
Red: Spoiled-Ants in My Pants
Orange/Copper: Spoiled-Cougar Attack
Blue/Green:Milani Jewel FX-Teal
Purple: Sinful Colors-Frenzy
I thought this turned out very dramatic for a glitter mani. I used a coat of Wet 'n' Wild's Wild Shine in Black Creme as a base color for all the glitters and then I just piled on the glitter until I thought I had good coverage. Some of the polishes are 3 coats, some are 4 and some of them might even have 5 coats! I tried the new peel-off base coat trick that I've seen floating around the blogs lately (for example Kayla Shevonne's tutorial here & Wacki Laki's here). Basically, it's Elmer's glue. It seemed to work pretty well, although I accidentally bought the Glue-All instead of the School Glue. I think the School Glue might adhere a little less so I'll grab some at Target next time I'm there to compare the two. One more shot:
Thanks so much for reading and tune in tomorrow for Day 10's Gradient Manicure!
