Rainbow Dot Gradient Nails

Somewhere over the rainbow! Way up high! Oh how I love rainbows! Today's design combines rainbows with dots with gradients in nail art for a simple yet stunning look for the summer time or just about any time you want a rainbow to brighten up your day :)


To get the look:
1.   Start off with a pink French manicure color, you want a natural base color to ensure your rainbow colors pop. Here I'm using Jordana French manicure in Pink Lilac, two coats.


2. Now you would need between 4-5 colors per nail bed for the gradient. So arrange your polishes using the sequence of the rainbow ROYGBIV; i.e. red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
3. Next you would need two sizes for your dots, a large and small nail dotting tools.
4. Start with your first color and the large dotting tool to apply a vertical line of dots straight down the nail bed.
5. Using the large dotting tool, apply the next color in your sequence.
6. Between your first two lines, now go back with your first color and use the small dotting tool to fill in the space between the two large dot lines.
7. Repeat the process of large, small, large, small dots to complete your color sequence of ROYGBIV.
8. Complete with a top coat to seal in some shine :)


Oh and you guess it! This design is also week 3: Polka Dots of the Busy Girl Nails Summer Challenge :)

I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
