Before I start on today's manicure I'd like to say a quick but sincere thank you to everyone who has visited Did My Nails. Yesterday marked both 150 blog followers and 15,000 page views, which obviously couldn't have happened without you guys stopping by. To celebrate I'll be announcing my first giveaway later this week!
But first, today's Twinsie Tuesday nails, and this week's theme is Rainbow. Not only am I down with another icky, congested cold, but after two huge nail breaks on my photo hand in the past 24 hours (the horror!) I definitely needed something a little bright and cheerful to pick me up. This theme just might have done the trick!
After a base of...I'm not even sure, one of my white or off-white polishes, I sponged different gradient combinations on each nail in the colours of the rainbow (except for indigo, because indigo isn't actually part of the visible spectrum of a rainbow...and also I don't have any indigo nail polish). Over the top of that I very lightly sponged some Orly Au Champagne to help blend and soften the colours, and then I added a coat of Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie because rainbow.
The other colours include a lot of my usual suspects, as well as a couple of new polishes: Revlon Colorstay Red Carpet, OPI In My Back Pocket, China Glaze Sunshine Pop, Jessica Mint Mojito Green, OPI Fly, and OPI Do You Lilac It? (and on top, one coat of SV).
And that's the true and gripping story of my rainbow nails. Thanks again to everyone for stopping by, and for more rainbow manicures, check out the rest of the Twinsie blogs!
