Manicure Monday Friday

…of course as soon as I decide to post my nails on Mondays, they are so fun I can’t wait!

My Rainbow Nails

Why should Sym have all the rainbow fun?

My are painted the opposite way as Symphony’s, and I did two colours on my thumbnails so I could have pink in my rainbow.

I definitely need a better technique for doing this. I painted them all over with the first colour (pink and blue, respectively), the put tape over one half to make a clean line and put the second colour (orange and purple) on the other half. However, maybe I just didn’t let them dry long enough but the tape totally messed up the polish underneath, so I had to do about a jillion coats to smooth them out. I used scotch tape on one and painter’s tape on the other and neither kind worked well.

  1. perfect timing for me to tell you that since I copied your idea for manicure monday (or even if you got the idea from some one else I still copied it from you, because I have’t seen it anywhere else) so I linked to you/your blog on my manicure monday post that will be posting on monday. I hope thats ok.

    1. It’s totally okay! I didn’t think I got the idea from anyone, I just usually paint my nails on Sunday night so it made sense to post them on Mondays. I actually just realized today that Manicure Monday reminds me of Manic Monday (the Bangles song), which probably influenced me as well.

      Anyway I look forward to your nail posts! 🙂

  2. Ok, I LOVE THIS!! I need to do this asap. Only, I don’t know if I have a yellow…

    I just bought Turquoise and Caicos though today and cannot wait to use it! I saw it out of the corner of my eye and got a little too excited over the color. Clearly I have a problem. haha

    1. Turquoise & Caicos is like, the PERFECT turquoise, I love it! It’s a little TOO turquoise for this though, like on my thumb next to the purple it looks to green. I just bought Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Blue Me Away:

      … and I think it’ll work a bit better next time I do a rainbow. Oh and if you need a yellow, the one I used (also Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) is really awesome, and I those polishes cost like, $2 at Target
