I can wind up down a rabbit hole of nail art DIY videos any day of the week and then wonder what just happened to the past hour of my life. In fact, it took me about three days to write this post for that very reason. But in reality, I have neither the time nor the patience to elaborately paint my nails, or even to sit at the nail salon long enough to get anything complicated done to my nails. I mean I can barely make it in there for a single color application.
But when I met the lovely lady behind Team Sparkle on my tour of Color Factory (which I’m so sorry to say is completely sold out!) and spied her nails with each finger painted a different color, I thought that might be a nail art project that even I could pull off. (She noted that this was a tame design for her.) So of course I took to Pinterest and found a few more images for inspiration.
Clearly I have a thing for rainbows this summer, which works out well because Color Factory single-handedly has made color the new neutral.
Bright Neon Rainbow via @adifferentshadeofpolish—a bolder version and why the heck not.
Warm vs. Cool Tones via Briargrove Elementary Art—I love that this teacher used her nails to teach kids color theory!
Hidden Double Rainbow Nails by MP Nails—Last but not least, this one is super subtle and cool for anyone who’s color-curious.
