Today is rainbow. I still think nothing will beat my rainbow nails from two years ago, but I am a pretty big fan of these.
Oil slick nails!
When thinking of what to do for rainbow nails, I thought about how oil makes a rainbow and wanted to figure out a way to recreate that on my nails. The best way I figured was a water marble with duochromes.
Doing quick google search showed me that I am definitely not the first person who has had this idea, so I can't take the credit here, but I think I definitely achieved the effect I was going for. For this manicure, I started off with a coat of black polish on my nails and then followed the water marbling technique using duochrome polishes.
The polishes I used are:
Pure Ice Black Out
ILNP Cygnus Loop
ILNP My Little Glacier
I love how I got the whole rainbow just on my thumb!
