Good Morning Lovelies & Happy Monday. Today I have a special manicure to share with you in honour of it being Pride Week in Halifax right now — some rainbow nails. This past weekend, I went out to celebrate & attended my very first Drag Show ever! So in honour of that, I wanted to create a design bright & colourful, & with a touch of glitter.
For this design, the polishes used were:
- Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Sally Hansen CSM Let’s Snow
- Sally Hansen MG Just Maui’d
- Sally Hansen MG Bourbon Belle
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow
- Essie First Timer
- Quo by ORLY Pep in Your Step
- China Glaze Fairy Dust
- Latex Free Make Up Sponge
- Wet n Wild Clear Polish
This design was super simple to create. I started off with a plain white base (my current favourite White polish!) & then sponged each colour over top of the white. Next I took a clear nail polish that would streak the colours together & repeatedly brushed over the nail so they blended. This is a trick I like to use with gradients, sponged looks & dry brushes because it blends them together really well (especially good with gradients!) & then I finish with actual top coat after. I also felt like this design needed a little bit of glitter, so I added some fairy dust as well.
I really love this combination of colours & the rainbow-ness of it. It was the perfect design for the awesome night I had out dancing! I’m very proud to live in a city which can celebrate Pride with such festivity & inclusivity. There really is an event for everyone!
