31DC2014 Day 9 – Rainbow Nails

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the outcome of this manicure but I knew I had to try :D I actually loved the result much more than I expected. The washed out effect that I produced by using the watercolor technique (described in my ebook), blending the colors together, it all made sense when it was finished. I started by using OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base and I used the following polishes for the rainbow:

  • Red – Essie “She’s Pampered”
  • Orange – Orly “Melt your popsicle”
  • Yellow – Pipe Dream Polish “Light of Day” (I actually need to wear this as a full manicure some day soon!)
  • Green – Catrice “Take it Mint”
  • Blue – Mavala “Cobalt Blue”
  • Purple – Pipe Dream Polish “V.I.P. Pass”

This is a completely different type of manicure than last year and I love both of them!
