Nail Design Tutorial: Rainbow Finger Tips

August 22, 2012

Rainbows on your nails anyone? It looks complicated, but it’s really not that hard. I did pink, yellow and purple — but you can pick any colors you like for your rainbow.
Read on to find out how easy this nail design is…

What you’ll need:

  1. Winning Nails Sable Nail Brush Round #6
  2. Essie Nail Polish, in Whites Waltz
  3. American Apparel Nail Polish, in Rose Bowl
  4. American Apparel Nail Polish, in Sunshine State
  5. American Apparel Nail Polish, in L’Esprit
  6. OPI Start To Finish (Base & Top Coat)

How to do it:

  1. Start off with painting your nails with a clear base, then draw white “clouds” on the tips of your nails.
  2. Once the white cloud polish has dried slightly, draw a pink rainbow strip.
  3. Repeat previous step using the yellow polish.
  4. Repeat previous step using the purple polish.
  5. Finish off your masterpiece with a top-coat for a super shiny look!

    Fun! I think I would just do one nail on each hand as a rainbow and then paint the rest of them sky blue…or gray!
