No part of this nail art is holo (sadly) but rest assured holo will come…. Not in this blog post, though… or the next.
This was so fun to do! I used white as my base colour after I chose the colour scheme for the pattern. I chose white because I was using several different brand polishes that had different finishes. Some were more opaque than others, but it worked nonetheless.
I did two thin coats of Energy Source (white). I let this dry properly because I intended on stamping directly onto my nails instead of doing a reverse stamp (which would take much longer and ain’t nobody got time fa’dat).
For each nail I chose two colours and blobbed polish onto the stamping plate alternating the colours. I then used my scraper a few times over the plate to blend the colours a little before picking up the image on the stamp.
Note: I tested the outcome on white paper prior to doing my nails. This helps if you’re unsure and saves acetone.
That’s it for the technique! I did the same to my other nails keeping the rainbow theme in mind.
Lastly, I topped off with a fast drying glossy top coat (I should’ve added holo over the rainbow to make it more rainbowy… what was I thinking?!)
