This mani was partially inspired by CraftyNail's rainbow mani from the OMD2 challenge. I really liked the rainbow on a neutral base, such as OPI My Vampire is Buff, so I ended up starting with the same base color!
This mani was actually really easy to put together, the hardest part was finding the appropriate colors for the rainbow. I apparently don't have, or couldn't find, a true violet color, so the more dusty purple of Ulta Tutu Cute was used instead. I dabbed a small amount of each polish on my scrap paper (I like to use the glossy flyer cards I get in the mail - think Ulta coupons). I then used the large end of my dotting tool to add a dot of each color in a vertical line down the center of the nail. After giving the dots an ample amount of dry time, I finished with a coat of NYC Matte Me Crazy.
Here are the colors I used for this mani:
- elf Smokin Hot
- China Glaze Stoked to be Soaked
- LA Colors Hi Lite
- LA Colors Art Deco Bright Green
- China Glaze I Sea the Point
- Ulta Tutu Cute
Overall, this is a super easy design, and I could see myself doing it again for future manis in a whole variety of colors. I also had a macro shot that I wanted to include in this post, but every time I try to upload it to Blogger, it's rotated on its side - oh well! Hope your Monday is going well!
