Pride 2020 Rainbow Nail Art

Pin It
Rainbow Gradient French Manicure

Happy LGBTQ Pride Month, y'all!

I randomly came across an IG post of the rainbow mani I did for the San Diego Pride parade a few years ago, and decided to re-create them in a different way! Soooooo... I did a quick and easy rainbow French mani. I used vinyl stripes to get a clean line (which, I guess over time lose their stickiness haha it was not fun!) and cosmetic sponges to apply the polish in a gradient effect.



I used Butter London x Allure in Nude Stilettos as my sheer base the following polishes:
Red: Zoya Sooki (not pictured, it's on my thumb with pink haha)
Pink: Zoya Kristie
Orange: Zoya Cam
Yellow: Zoya Pippa (THE BEST YELLOW EVER!)
Green: Color Club Wild Cactus (I think, it has no label)
Blue: Zoya Maren
Purple: Zoya Jessica

There's a sneak peek of Kristie, Maren, and Jessica. Those I'll have up on the blog shortly, they were just too good not to use for this rainbow mani. 

"Pride is celebrated in June to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising of 1969,
where folx in the queer community fought back against a police raid at the Stonewall Inn
in New York City. The uprising was a catalyst for the LGBTQIA+ rights movement in America"

COLOR CLUB: Neon Stained Glass Nail Art

Pin It Hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, and slightly sane during this situation of a pandemic. I've seen a lot of cool "stained glass" painted windows and doors (like this! I don't know this blogger, but thought I'd pass the idea along in case someone hasn't seen it!).

As tempted as I am to paint my huge sliding glass patio doors, live in an apartment who would probably freak out if I painted it  even if it's temporary haha. So, I decided the second best thing would be to paint my nails (obviously). I had an idea for a ton of random colors but was gravitated to some Color Club neons in my collection.

I really like how this came out! The mix of a neutral cream polish and neon has always been visually intriguing to me. Plus a little color right now goes a long way.

I couldn't find my striping tape, I think I threw it away out of frustration, so I just used a striping brush to create the random triangular shapes. As much as I'd prefer a full mani, my nail art skills are a little rusty so 4 nails took forever (I did my right hand too haha).

The colors I used were Color Club: Barely There (neutral/nude), Foxy Mama (neon orange with gold shimmer), Not-So-Mellow Yellow (florescent yellow shimmer), Peace, Love, & Polish (hot pink with gold shimmer), and a no-name bright blue (I think it's name is Endless Summer).

Barely There took a really long time to dry for some reason, which really backfired in layering the neons over it... causing it to take forever to dry. Even with my Zoya/Qtica drying drops, I couldn't get the art to dry until the next day - WHOOPS! As much as I love this neutral, I think I'm going to have to trash it. Still enjoying this mani, even if it has some sheetmarks lmao *facepalm*

Have a great day!
