This week's color was rainbow nails. Again, not quite sure how this is a color. But I guess it works for those indecisive folks who can't chose just one color and can do all of them at once. Instead of doing a different color on each nail, I went for a mini rainbow design on each nail instead.
For the rainbow colors I used Red, Spoiled in 'Let's Get Sushi', Covergirl Outlast in Yellow, Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in 'Limestone', Spoiled in Blue, and Wet n Wild Fast Dry in 'Buffy the Violet Slayer'. To start, I used Spoiled in white for the base. To make the rainbow I started at the top with red, creating a zigzag line back and forth maybe twice, and continuing down the nail with each color.
I used a toothpick to draw the lines on my left hand, but after I was done I thought it looked pretty bad. The lines were all uneven, as if a kindergartner drew them on. So for the right hand I used a brush and the lines came out a lot straighter. I also changed the Red, Wet n Wild Megalast in 'I Need a Refresh-Mint' and Icing in 'Opaque' colors to make the rainbow brighter.

This isn't a style I would normally wear everyday. It was a fun one to try, but color overload for me. It might be nice to just have the rainbow on one nail (I'm all about the accent nail). And how about those polish names? How do you get that job in naming nail polishes?
Any suggestions for next week's Gradient nails?
