Radiant Rainbow

Nothing to Disclose

Good evening! Day 8 of the 31 Day Challenge features the prompt of "rainbow." I had a few different ideas in mind for this prompt but wanted to challenge myself and work on my freehand lines. I must say, I am very proud of how my lines turned out!

Post continued after the jump!

For this manicure I painted my nails with a base of a plain white creme and a quick dry top coat. Once it was completely dry I used a striping brush to create the stripes. 

All of the colors I used to create the rainbow were Zoyas:

Sooki (red)
Arizona (orange)
Darcy (yellow)
Tilda (green)
Ling (blue)
Mira (purple)

I topped it all with butter LONDON Matte Top Coat once it was completely dry. 

I do wish I had started the lines just a bit higher on my nail so that they would be centered on my nail but I guess there's always bound to be something I'm not 100% happy with. Sometimes being a perfectionist sucks! LOL


I originally wanted to make this a "drippy rainbow" because I have never tried a drip manicure and I love when I see them on others. Mine didn't turn out so well. You can see it below. But I will try it again! My drips need some work!

See you back tomorrow for more of the #31dc2014!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing! ♥
