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 :)

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
