How To: At the End of the Rainbow

Wanna have a rainbow of colors on your nails? No problem. Follow my easy peasy tutorial for rainbow nails with golden treasure sprinkled all over them. 

Here's what you'll need:
* white nail polish
* polishes in the colors of the rainbow (red, yellow, green, blue and purple)
* golden glitter top coat
* sponge

1 - Paint your nails with white nail polish. Allow the nails to dry completely.

2 - Cut up the sponge into smaller pieces. Paint the sponge with two colors: I started with red and yellow, continued with yellow and green, etc ... Try dabbing the sponge onto a piece of paper before you stamp the colors on the nails. The colors I used: BYS Point Blank, BYS The Right Bright, BYS Colour Change Blue, BYS Blue Bolt and Color Club Puccilicious.

3 - Stamp the color onto your nails. It'll be messy, but a little bit of acetone and a cotton swab will take care of that. Just dip the swab into your nail polish remover and gently remove the paint from your fingers and cuticles. Brush might be useful too (for the delicate parts).

4 - Here's how it looks after the clean-up. You can stop here and apply a layer of top coat over the rainbow gradient.

5 - For those of you who wanna go all the way to the end of the rainbow, there's a pot filled with golden glitter. Apply a layer of it over the gradient and you're done. I used BYS Gold Finger.

    1. =) Go ahead and recreate it. I've seen nails similar to these on Pinterest before, so it's not completely my idea anyway.
