September Nail Art Challenge: Stamping Month! Day 16: Rainbow


I love rainbows, whenever I see one it make me feel happy and I always look for them if the weather is right. However creating rainbow on the nails is quite challenging. I wanted to make it bright rainbow rather then pastel, so creating decal with all bright colors was an obvious choice.

Figure 3.  One more macro image at different light.

Figure 4.  I added a bird , as was suggested.

Materials and Methods:

Nail polish: 
  • Picture polish -Mirage (3 coats)
  • Picture polish -Vegas (decal)
  • Zoya - Amy (decal)
  • Zoya - Kerry (stamping and decal)
  • Crows toes - Green thumb of doom (decal)
  • Picture polish - Whimsy (decal)
  • Emily de Molly - Indigo flow (decal)
  • Zoya - Suri (decal)
Stamping plates:
  •  Pueen 39

Overall this was a simple nail art. I applied three coats of mirage to create smooth sky-like background. For stamping I decided to use Kerry to have gold lines between colorful ones, which I painted on the stamper using selection of polishes. Once decal dried I just applied it on the semi-dry top coat. I have a feeling that this nail looks a bit unfinished, so I tried stamping different things above rainbow, but it did not work well, so this could probably be part of different nail art involving all five nails and extra stamping.
