Hi Sweeties! Happy Friday!
It's been long since I could actually post on a Friday, which are usually extra hectic. But yesterday I had a moment to schedule this post, wii! I did this manicure for the Nail Crazies Unite Challenge and the prompt for today is "Rainbow".
To achieve this manicure I first painted my nails with a very light colour to have a canvas. I used
OPI My Vampire is Buff (which I'm holding on the photos) but any off white colour would do. I let that dry, and then worked a diagonal gradient to form a rainbow. For my gradient I used a sponge and four colours from the latest OPI Fiji collection Spring 2017: OPI Living on the Bula-vard, OPI Exotic Birds do not tweet, OPI Super Trip-i-cal-i-fiji-stic, OPI Two-timing the zones. Basically what you need is a bright red, yellow a medium blue and a pink or light purple.
Once my gradient was done on all the nails I applied a topcoat and waited for it to dry completely. On top of this I decided to stamp using MoYou London Black knight and Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP- 97. After stamping I cleaned my cuticles and applied topcoat.
I have enjoyed wearing this manicure which lasted 11 days intact! I wore it to my boy's birthday party and received a lot of compliments (and the manicure was already 9 days old!).
What do you think about rainbow manis? I'm loving it! I find it so suitable for Spring and also for St. Patrick's day :D
