I have another gradient for you today. This time it's the whole rainbow! This mani is one that I can see myself doing again because I think it's so pretty. I wanted to incorporate some gold too, but without the literal pot and the end. I just got a new stamping plate that has a nice design of Celtic knots. I thought that fit perfectly! It's a subtle tie-in to the Irish gold-hording leprechauns and whatnot.
The stamping went pretty smoothly too. I was super stressed about it because I really wanted to do it, but all my practice runs were major fails. My thumb is the only nail that has a little gap. I was almost done when I realized that I hadn't paid attention to the diagonal direction of the stamp. So my middle finger has the design going the opposite direction. It just adds character, right?
Finally on this last shot you can see the gradient on the thumb, with the red and orange.
What I used:
DRK-A Large Stamping Plate (bought from Ninja Polish)
Ulta 14 Carat- gold
(In order, from thumb to pinky)
OPI Red Hot Ayers Rock
Sephora by OPI Hi Def
Barielle Banana Drop
Urban Decay Covet
Ulta Blue Streak
OPI Dating A Royal
Ulta Tutu Cute
What's your favorite rainbow song? I can't help but think of "Look to the Rainbow" from Finian's Rainbow. Love that song!
