Kimber’s Mish Mash Challenge: Rainbow

24 Oct

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another challenge, and this week’s theme is: Rainbow.

You might be able to tell from my logo that I’m a big fan of rainbows, so I was pretty pumped for the challenge. Lucky me, I happened to have every color in the rainbow (ignoring indigo because wtf isn’t that just blue, too?) in polish bottles that came with a striping brush except purple which made it super easy to make this striped mani.

I loved the stripes by themselves, but I was inspired by some Tegan and Sara fan art I made for a friend of mine a little while ago to add the heart using sharpie.

In case you’re curious, here’s the fan art I made:



(yes, that’s lyrics to all my favorite songs in the background because I have an unhealthy obsession)

So the polishes I used for this mani were:

  • Base coat: You can’t really see it, but I used LVX Rive
  • Rainbow: Art Club striping brushes red, yellow, green; Milani striping brushes orange and blue; Wet N Wild On A trip (which I applied using a toothpick because I couldn’t find my regular striping brush haha)

I really loved this mani, and so did pretty much everyone I ran into over the past few days. I originally painted it on Sunday and have just been maintaining it through touch ups since because I adore it.

A couple of little non-mish mash related things: I have a facebook page now and y’all should probably go like it because I may-or-may not be plotting something that involves using it later (like perhaps a giveaway?) and because I’m going to keep it up today and post there a lot. Really! I am! Or at least I’m going to try 🙂

I wanted to give another shout out to Kimber, who hosts this challenge and who did a guest post for me on Friday. I’m so grateful for both the guest post and for involving me in this challenge which has just been so much fun and constantly educational. Thanks Kimber, you’re amazing!

Alright, that’s it for me, folks. I’ll be back on Friday for a fabulous 5 (though I really want to make it 10 since I skipped last week and have sooo many things to post about!). Make sure you check out the other beautiful manis from the challenge below!
