Spring Challenge - Day 5 - Rainbow

Hey everyone!
It's the fifth instalment of the Spring challenge myself and Esme of Nail Addict are doing. Today is rainbow nails, but I think of these more as stained glass windows. They don't scream rainbow; but trust me when I say there's 7 colours in there!

Base Coat: Nail RX - Stuck On You
Base Colour: Sally Hansen - White On
Stamping Colours: Rimmel - Purple Reign
                                   Rimmel - Pop!

                                  
LA Colors - Static Electricity
                                  
Barry M - Bright Red
                                  
George - Buttercup Shine
                                  
Flormar - N007                                   M&S Mini - Unnamed pink
Image Plate: BM208
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1

You can see the purple here on the thumb, on the other nails it's kinda blended into th mix.
 

I kind of feel like I was let down a little bit by Purple Reign (although it could just be my placements) but I will try this again one day when I have a sexy vivid purple in my hands (Yes; I am looking at you Zoya Mira you will be miine!!) and will see if it works out better.

Then I decided to see how it looked matte, and I looved it even more. Giving it the matte top coat really made the colours pop, and they looked more luminous




Don't forget to head over to Nail Addict to see what Esme came up with for today's challenge.

Up next; on Friday is frogs!

    1. I just dabbed the colours on the plate, scraped then cleaned up the plate, and used what was left on my scraping card to fill in the image, scrape again and stamp :]

  13. This is soooooo pretty! You should totally put up a tutorial ;)

  14. Yes def a tutorial. I'm wondering tho if you dotted the colors on the plate and then swiped it before you stamped. I tried that once before but wasn't successful so a tutorial would be awesome!!

    Thx for showing us :)

    1. Hehe! For the look I like (trying to avoid harsh lines) I've found you can dot on the colours by the image you're gonna use and then wiggle the polish over lightly, and then scrape.

      Or what I do majority of the time is to dot on the image, scrape it, clean the plate, and use what's left on the scraper to smoosh across the surface of the image before scraping to reveal a more mixed look :]

      I hope that made sense! I will be putting up a tutorial soon which might help :]

    1. You should do it ^_^ If you don't have any plates you could always use thin bits of tape/striping tape to mask off the nail and sponge on a rainbow ^_^
