31DC2016 Day 9: Freehand Rainbow

Painted Fingertips | Rainbow for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is Rainbow! I decided to go with a fairly obvious interpretation and just paint a big freehand rainbow across my nails, which, surprisingly, I hadn’t done in any of the previous years. Painted Fingertips | Rainbow for the #31DC2016

I started off with a base of Darling Diva ‘Murica!, which was a mystery exclusive polish included in their recent 4th of July sale. It’s packed with silver, holo, and flakies, so I decided it would make the perfect base for my rainbow. I freehanded the rainbow using acrylic paints. Painted Fingertips | Rainbow for the #31DC2016

The rainbow came out a little asymmetrical, but it still looks bright and colourful! I decided to add some pink-gold rectangular glitters around it to be the bars of gold you’d find at the end of it. Painted Fingertips | Rainbow for the #31DC2016

I’m pretty happy with my bright and colourful take on the rainbow theme! In previous years, I’ve done a rainbow vertical gradient, and rainbow stamping decals.
