Day 9–Soft Pastel Rainbow

I decided to finally try a rainbow sponge gradient and as messy as it was, I love the softness of design. I wish my red/pink had shown up a little more, but I guess I need to have some longer nails or make the orange and yellow sections a little bit smaller. I then smoothed out the bumpiness of the gradient with a China Glaze – Fairy Dust and OTD Topcoat. There you have it! My rainbow gradient!

    1. It is one of the best glitters out there because the glitter is so nice and fine that it just accents any manicure you have with the perfect amount of glitter! Some glitter is so chunky that your design can get lost if you over do it, but Fairy Dust is perfect!

    1. I just used a makeup sponge and painted on the colours I wanted. Then I sponged it right onto my nails! It's pretty quick and dirty :)

    1. I don't think anyone has ever commented on my nail beds before! It's weird, but I actually have very small hands (size 2 ring finger) but my nail beds seem to take up all of my finger! I'm glad you liked the gradient!
