Rainbow Nails!

This week is the very last in the #rainbownailsblog challenge, though I know we dragged it out for a while! We thought we'd finish enough with a mad dash of colour, though weirdly mine turned out possibly my plainest of the challenge.

nail design with stripes

My original plan was to have the little rainbow stripes on each nail, but after considering how fiddly just this one was, and bearing in mind some of my other nails are smaller (and therefore more fiddly with less room for all the colours!), I decided a one off feature nail would do nicely!
I used striping tape I bought really cheap on ebay (like this), my first time using it, to help get my lines straight then tried to paint between them. As you can probably see this worked better with some of the colours than others, though I'm attributing a lot of the smudged and messy bits to my impatience!
I'm overall quite pleased with the effect though and I reckon a bit of practise and in some cases a wiser polish choice could have this looking pretty good!

  1. This is great! I love that used a nude colour for the other nails so the rainbow really pops! xx

  2. That's not plain. It's pretty yet not over the top. It looks fab.

    Thanks for letting me be part of it. I really enjoyed it x
