Party Nails!

I'm headed up to Austin tomorrow!! Hooray! Oh, Sixth Street, how I've missed thee. And friends, too, but come on now.

In celebration of this joyous occasion, I decided to do rainbow nails! But I couldn't decide which kind I wanted to do - stripes or confetti - So I did both! :D



Look #1: Confetti Nails

VERY simple to do. This took me about 5 minutes. Minus drying time.

Apply a white base coat and allow to dry. Then grab your brightest colors and go to town! I used one of the dot-makers I bought a few weeks ago, and just took turns adding each color on. Don't worry about being exact with the dots - confetti is pretty lop-sided. Cover with a clear base coat, and you're done!



Look #2: Rainbow Stripe Nails

Not quite as simple as the first, but still pretty easy. Apply a clear base coat (or white, if you want your colors to really pop. I was going for more of a Lisa Frank look.) Take the same rainbow colors, and one by one, paint diagonal lines across your nails. I used a smaller paint brush that I purchased with the dot-makers. If you are too lazy/cheap to buy one, then use fewer colors / fatter lines. Don't worry about being exact with the lines. I think it looks a little cooler if they're swirly! Add some glitter and a top coat and get ready to rave!
