Radical Rainbows

Hey, everyone!

I tweaked my homemade sheer tints yet again and made them a little more vibrant and easy to work with, so I wanted to do a mani with them. And this was the result! Keep reading to find out more!

Oh my goodness, you guys! These nails were so distractingly beautiful when I was wearing them! My grandma even told me that these are some of her favorite nails I've ever done, and she usually likes more neutral nail designs (win!).

To start the design I painted all of my nails with two careful coats of Nfu Oh 061 and when that was dry I used my sheer tints to overlap and make a rainbow gradient across my nails.  I used Sunburn, Creamsicle, Sunshine, Garden Addict, Clear Skies, and Bloom. When I was happy with the color saturation, I allowed them to dry and then stamped a design in black using B Loves Plates B.03 Mind Blown and one of my Chelle We Stamp stamper heads. These stampers are seriously the best, y'all! Then I sealed everything with topcoat. Unfortunately, because Nfu Oh 061 is so picky, the holo didn't really show up much under the colors but it did still give it a glowing-from-within look so that was nice!
