I am feeling lazy today, so I am not going to list all of the colors that I used to paint my rainbow striped nails. Red, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I have used all of these particular shades before. I topped it with Sally Hanson Crackle in Antiqued Gold.

This week I decided to challenge myself with an animal print. I googled leopard print nail art but I need lots of bling and color so I decided to do a rainbow colored base. I painted each nail a different base color and sponged two other colors on each nail for a gradient effect followed by a coat of a fine opalescent glitter by WetnWild, Then I dotted gold spots and outlined them in black. It was very time consuming because my black polish had gotten thick and gummy :( Please ignore the smudge on my left pinky. The colors I used were: Sally Hanson Xtreme Wear in Blue It, Emerald City, and Black Out, NYC In A New York Minute in Prince Street, Maybelline Color Show in Fierce N Tangy, Sinful Colors in Under 18, and Nicole by OPI in The Next CEO. Enjoy!

This manicure was inspired by this blog post Dressed Up Nails: Fall Mosaic Nails. Mine aren't nearly as awesome as hers but they'll do. I used a combination of several glittery golds as the base and painted in a jagged edge leaving some bare nail at the bottom, then used Sinful Colors in Sugar Sugar(red), NYC In a New York Minute in Prince Street(purple), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Emerald City, Kiss Nail Art in Pearl Blue, and Pure Ice in Magnetic Attraction(silver grey). I kind of wish I had used a silver glitter instead of gold.
I was too busy to post these when I first did them but better late than never. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Beige Blast as the base then tipped them with Nicole by OPI in The Next CEO topped with Iris Colors in Gold Rush and used NYC In a New York Minute in Prince Street for the accents.

What a difference lighting makes! The top image was taken indoors and the bottom image was taken outdoors. I think that the color really looks like something in between the two. I was inspired to do this manicure by a character in a book I read. She decorated her bedroom and bathroom entirely in pink and gold. I promptly went out and bought pink and gold nail polishes and got to work. The pink is Milani in Juno and the gold is Nicole by OPI in The Next CEO.

I did this manicure using a makeup sponge to dab the colors over a base coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City. Please ignore my poor index finger. I broke my nail but I refuse to cut all my others just to make it look even. It will grow to match the others eventually. /sigh

I love the color combo here but I am not crazy about the pattern. I used my own custom blue, Xtreme Wear by Sally Hanson in Celeb City, Kiss Nail Art in Bikini Pink, and Maybelline Color Show in Fierce N Tangy. I named it Popsicle Time because the colors make me think of summer and fun.
