Rainbottles - 31 Day Challenge - Day 9

Nothing to Disclose

Roy G. Biv.... that guy sure is colorful! Today's design for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge definitely didn't turn out how I expected it, but strangely enough, they rarely do. Some turn out for the better, some for the worse. You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and then you have...my nails? Hit the jump for more pictures and what I used, including a tweak I made after the above picture was taken.
To get the gradient, I just did on of those fun sponge gradients...it's so much easier now that I learned to paint the sponge instead of blobbing polish on my palette and trying to pick it up with the sponge. I get much smoother gradients now! :D

I tried adding a white background to my polish bottles after the first photo was taken. What do you think? Which is your favorite?

What did I use?

KIKO 239 - Vermillion Red
KIKO 280 - Orange
KIKO 279 - Yellow
KIKO 534 - Green Forest
KIKO 831 - Cobalt Blue
KIKO 333 - Bright Violet
Glisten & Glow Wedding Gown White
Glisten & Glow Little Black Dress


  1. Ooh I much prefer the white background. I didn't actually spot the bottles in the first, I just thought it was a funky 80s style pattern. Either way, I love it.

    1. Thanks, Vicky! I think I'm still undecided- I like it both ways- but I wish I had been a bit cleaner with the white fill!

  2. I love how it came out after you colored in the white!!! It looks pretty magical. :)


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
