Rainbows!

Post image for Rainbows!

Since my American Apparel neon spectrum is complete (at least for now…), why not paint my nails rainbow? It took me around 2 hours which is ridiculous, but it was totally worth it. I’ve been receiving compliments left and right, but I didn’t think people would actually be that impressed. Even the lady at the MAC counter here in RI loved it!

Tomorrow, I’m heading out to the beach with my school! I’m very excited, but definitely afraid of the cold water here in the north east. Hopefully it won’t be too bad! I bought a new swimsuit and I’m excited to show you all! :)

Also! the giveaway deadline will be extended until July 8th! I realized two days ago that I had put the completely wrong date, making the giveaway deadline before I even posted the post! Once I changed it, I started receiving more entries, so I’ll give those who I confused an extra chance :)

You can enter the giveaway here!

They look amazing!! I can’t believe you put that kind of time into them, but it was definitely worth it. And I love the crackle coat on the thumbs. Brilliant idea, girly!

Lots of patience, for sure…but it was almost therapeutic so it didn’t feel as long as it was. Thanks girl! :)

Hey! Thanks! I literally just used the paint brush straight out the bottle, red to purple, so that I could cover up the mistakes with the next color. Thank you very much Danielle!

How on earth did you do it? I’d love to try a pastel version. Love the shatter polish too

Lots of patience! I used the brush straight out the bottle, though a fine paint brush would have worked WAY better. I’d LOVE to try a pastel one. Definitely on my to-do list! Thanks hun!

I absolutely love your nail art!
I’ve recent started my own polish collection and this would such fun!
