Good morning! Day 9 of the 31 Day Challenge is a cheerful one - Rainbow!
I went for a sorta-drippy sorta-messy rainbow glittery look!
And I really love how it turned out! I keep surprising myself with these manis. I sit down with no real idea in mind and end up with manicures that I love. Hopefully I can continue doing that as the challenge continues.
The base color of this manicure is Orly - Decades of Dysfunction. I keep reaching for this polish because it just looks so clean and nice. It's a great nude.
The glitters are mostly 2-way nail art pens from eBay. (There was also a pink I used but that one forgot to get in the picture.) I also used Milani - Purple Gleam because I had no purple glitter pen.
The pink, purple, and orange glitters needed some help with the color opacity so I used a tiny amount of other polishes to help them show up - China Glaze - Rich and Famous, LA Girl - Dance Craze, and LA Colors - Nuclear Energy.
I used a striper brush to make the small lines and drag them up towards the tip.
You don't have to be neat because the uneven lines make the messy, drippy look.
I bet I'll get a lot of compliments on this manicure, because it is really sparkly and bright!
This would be equally as awesome if I had done complete stripes on the nail. Maybe I'll do that next September if I do the challenge again... Haha!
