31DC2013 Day 9: Rainbow Nails

For Day 8's nails I created a rainbow waterfall mani! It seems crazy that I got this far in to the challenge without doing a waterfall so while today is potentially the last day I will have the freedom to do one, it's also an idea I've been holding on to for a while so it feels good to get it out and on to my nails! I used 20 different shades of nail polish in this nail art. Most of the time spent on this mani was just screwing and unscrewing the bottles!



My base colour is Sally Hansen Crinolin and I used a selection of colours for the rainbow effect, too many to list here! There's a tutorial for the waterfall technique right here if you fancy it yourself!
And as always, it's topped off with a coat of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly.

  2. This is incredible! I love the waterfall look and I love the gradient of colors going across all your nails. The blue/purple combination on your pointer finger is amazing I love it!

    1. Can you explain what you mean? Whose idea are you claiming this was?

    2. Ugh - haters gonna hate. Forget 'em. Your nails look great! I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head for my next mani (mostly inspired by various pins and blogs such as yours, of course!) and I think I'll definitely have to try this waterfall thing in the near future. Although I'll probably stick to the same color scheme on each nail cause I know I'm not ready to handle 20+ colors :P
