Rainbow Nails

How cute do my nails look right now?! I saw these on Pinterest (thank you Glitter and Nails - you're a genius!) and just had to try to recreate them. I freehanded the stripes, so they are far from perfect - but I still love how they turned out!


NAIL POLISH I USED: Wet n Wild Shine in Tickled Pink (402), N.Y.C. Taxi Yellow Creme 114, Wet n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh-Mint (218A), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac (270), & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On (300)
The links in this post are provided so you can see more clearly which polishes I used - I bought mine at drugstores where they are significantly cheaper!

Lately it has been raining nonstop (or absolutely freezing) so it's nice to glance down and see these bright nails! Before I moved earlier this year, I lived in California, so this weather is going to take some getting used to!

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to dress warmly and still show my aesthetic - can anybody recommend a pretty, candy-colored coat?!

What do your nails look like right now? :3

Kailey

  7. Very cute! I love doing stripes on my nails, but I haven't added clouds before. Right now my nails only have a clear base coat because I'm going to do nailart later today!

  15. Your nails are adorable. I just painted mine last night in a mint sorbet color :]

    Also, candy colored coats may vary. I'd recommend browsing Polyvore. Here's a start: http://www.polyvore.com/candy_colored_coats/set?id=62189103

  17. So cute. They remind me of rainbow belts. I bought some yesterday. I think this might be a sign that I need to candify my nails again!

  18. They turned out so cute! I love how you styled these pictures with the rainbow backdrop. And I love that it's a pastel rainbow. I actually just took my polish off a few minutes ago (I usually don't use any, working in a library is not conducive to having nice nail polish, it pretty much gets immediately destroyed).. but before I took it off it was the leftover white & seafoam I had for my mermaid Halloween costume.

  45. I haven't done my nails in forever, but recently I've been thinking of doing them up in candy pink and silver, Chanel-style: http://www.fashionisingpictures.net/catwalks/chanelhcnails.jpg

    As far as candy-colored coats go, I've been eyeing this one!

    I wish they came in more pastel-y shades, though. :(

  46. Oooh super cute, I made rainbow nails before too: http://magicaldaydream.blogspot.nl/2011/05/rainbow-nails.html but right now my nails are pretty boring, maybe I should paint them in a happy pattern again!
