Flip Flop February - Rainbow

Almost to the end of the Flip Flop February challenge already! I've been looking forward to doing rainbow nails the entire time. I wanted to try something similar to last year's rainbow nails I did.


I switched up the design a bit. I still used dots, and I still did it on top of China Glaze For Audrey though. I love dotted designs and I love how rainbow colors look over light blues like For Audrey!


I'm also experimenting with different lighting for today's photos, as well as using a black background instead of white. So let me know what you think of these photos too! I'll do it for some future posts to continue experimenting as well. 


I started off with one coat of China Glaze For Audrey. I then dotted on Finger Paints Expressionist Red, Zoya Arizona, Circus Somersault, KleanColor Green Grass, KleanColor Neon Sapphire, and Sinful Colors Amethyst, in that order. I tried to dot different sized dots sort of randomly to create a rainbow dot gradient.


I waited for the dots to dry a bit before applying a layer of Seche Vite, to help prevent smearing them. I was mostly afraid of the dark blue! I considered using a lighter green and a lighter blue, but I wanted to use darker ones so they would show up well against For Audrey


Another success! I love rainbow nails every time I do them. They're so colorful and bright and cheery. I'll have to continue playing around with my new lighting setup as well.
