Deborah's manicure - Rainbow dotticure
Hi loves! How are you this Wednesday? Because of yesterday's holiday and the Monday I had a day off, today feels like Monday.. aah, a sweet and short workweek it'll be!
Today we came to the challenge of rainbow nails.. I had seen this design floating around already and immediately knew this would be my rainbow design: a rainbow dotticure!
I started with a base of 2/3 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, and let it dry completely. I used a coat of Bondi I'm Vers in between, to give a nice and even canvas to work on. This isn't a quick dry topcoat (or at least it dries quickly, but it doesn't harden completely very fast). Then I used 2 sizes of dotting tools and the following colors for the rainbow dots: China Glaze With Love - OPI A Roll In The Hague - ULTA Cha Cha - China Glaze Holly Day - OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui - OPI Road House Blues - Catrice Plum Play With Me .
It wasn't as much work as I thought it'd be. You just do one color at a time, only thing I had to be a bit careful about was placement, to make sure the 7 rows would fit!
Do you like these colorful dots? What would you have done with the theme rainbow nails?
Loqi's manicure - Rainbow leopard
I haven't made a secret of the fact that I am in love with Deborah's free hand leopard print. So, for this challenge I decided to try it for myself. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? It even looks a bit like Deborah's Queensday manicure, even though I did this a few days ago.
I started out by painting my shorties with my favourite nude: Nerd from H&M. Then I used a dotting tool to make coloured rainbow dots with different crème polishes and used a smaller one to make the black pattern. The pattern in the small picture is from my thumb nail, which is just a dot of every colour.
I actually reaaaaaly love how this turned out! And the leopard print is so easy to do, so thanks Deborah!
