Oooh I do love a rainbow and I love today's mani too! It's sure cheering me up on this miserably cold day, I've been on the hot water bottles since I woke up. Brrrr! Apparently colder here in the UK than in Siberia yesterday, well that's saying something! This design is yet another that has been on my to-do list for the longest time but it just seemed like too much work to have a go at when there were other more pressing mani's I wanted to do. In fact though, it wasn't very time consuming at all!
I've no idea how others would do this but I started with a white base, two coats. Next I used a black nail art pen to draw out my clouds. I then - miraculously for me - managed to paint on the rainbow stripes pretty evenly using only the polish bottle brush and a finely balanced amount of polish; I finished off the fiddly area's closest to the cloud tops with a small nail art brush. Finally popped on a coat of glitter for a hint of magic!
I'm sooo chuffed with this one! I love it when a mani you're almost afraid to start ends up being a breeze and turning out just how you wanted... It's rare let me tell you!
