NAILS Mag 31DC Day 19 - Rainbow

Hello everyone! Well yesterday got totally out of hand with the fabulous nail art community shareathon and I didn't have a chance to post this mani. I was originally going to make this my Theme Buffet Weather mani too, but I had settled on trying out some lightning so saved this one for another post!

I started these nails by painting a small section or strip of yellow (each a different size, shape and position) using OPI Yellowpalooza on to each nail. I then added each colour working outwards. Orange (Revlon Siren), Red (Barry M Gelly Paints Blood Orange), Purple (Color Club Pucci-licious), Blue (Models Own Feeling Blue) and Green (Revlon Sassy). I freehanded it all with a very fine striping brush (using thicker, opaque polishes helped with tidying up the lines at the end!). I finished with a coat of Seche Vite.





I love this bright cheery mani and I think as the shapes and lines are different on each nail it has a bit of a retro feel! Perfect for celebrating all my lovely new followers! I first did this design back in November 2012 and I'm glad to say that it looks a lot better today! Click here to see the original post.

Tomorrow I will be bringing you the third Tri Polish mani for January, more bright red, orange and yellow! In the meantime, thank you to all of you that shared my pages over the weekend! I shared as many as possible and am looking into setting up some share time each week :)
