I am not going to lie, I am pretty proud to still be in this challenge. I realise I could fluff it all up at any point and be completely out of it but so far I’m going strong. Yay me!
I have so been looking forward to the rainbow prompt! I had so many ideas. Except….I couldn’t get one single idea to come out the way I wanted it to. I was this || close to sobbing when finally, something kinda worked. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted but after many
days hours and temper tantrums, I’m taking what I can get 😉 Let me show you.
I started with a coat of Sinful Colors – Snow me white as a base for the gradient. When that was dry I did a sponged rainbow gradient using 6 colours: Essence – Fame fatal, Essence – Flashy pumpkin, Essence – Wanna be your sunshine, Essence – Beijos de Brazil, Essence – Let’s get lost and Essence – Break through. I top coated to smooth out the gradient and when that was dry I added the drip stamp using BM405 and Essence stampy polish in white.
I wanted to do the drips freehand but I can’t believe what a bad job I did of it. The last time I did it – granted it was a very long time ago – I found it to be easy and it looked good. Goodness. I will definitely have to practice that a bit. Luckily BundleMonster came to the rescue 😉
What do you think of my rainbow nails? For some strange reason I didn’t swatch the yellow – Essence – Wanna be your sunshine – but let me show you the other colours I used.
Essence – Break through
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. Beautiful purple creme with great opacity and formula.
Essence – Let’s get lost
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. Blue creme. It has great opacity but is prone to bubbling if you’re not careful with the coats. Also, beware of staining. Definitely a double base coater.
Essence – Beijos de Brazil
Essence – Flashy pumpkin
Essence – Fame fatal
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. I love this red creme so much. Great formula and opacity.
