I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do. I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it. Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss. As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is!
Inspired by a mental image something like this, I thought, why not rainbows? I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin. Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish. Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints. I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours. The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
The Verdict: I love how this came out. I've been having a rough time at work so shiny rainbow nails makes me happy. It was pretty quick to do too. Yay paints!
