Happy last day of May everyone! It's crazy how fast this year is going so far but I am bringing to you little rays of rainbows to brighten your day (even though it is a little rainy!).
I decided to try something a little bit different with my nails and I really love how they turned out. I bought some nail art tape a few weeks ago and was disappointed to find that when I used them, they peeled up off of my tips, even with a top coat! If you know how to do that so that doesn't happen, I would most appreciate it! But anyways, I decided to use them in a different way so that they wouldn't be a huge waste of my money, although they were like $3 for 10 colors. Great deal!
So first, I painted two coats of Spark from Orly. Originally, I was going to do just one coat, but I realized that this color turns out a little streaky, even with two coats, so I definitely needed that second coat. Next, I sponged on Shelby from Zoya which is a very light, bubblegum pink color from the Beach Collection. I fell in love with this color, first because I don't really have a color close to this, and second, the finish is amazing. Although you don't get the full effect of this color with the sponging and all the other colors surrounding it, you will see it soon because I have some great ideas for Drop Dead Diva nails for the premiere on Sunday! I then sponged on Zoya's Wednesday also from the Beach Collection. I chose these colors first because they looked great together, and second because I believe they compliment each other very nicely. Zoya made a great collection, although I wish there was a great yellow with it.
Using the nail art tape, placed it the locations you see here. I was really trying to think of how I could possibly do this design. I was going to go with a random assortment of lines, but I decided, obviously, to go with something more refined.
Over the top, I used OPI's Alpine Snow then quickly ripped off the nail art tape and VOILA! Rainbow Rays of beautifulness. Enjoy!
