I know, they make angled nail guides for this sort of art. But I am cheap and have not yet bought nail vinyls (although I sorely want some zig-zag ones) and so I went ahead and free-handed this. It took forever. I decided to make a gradient so that the white sections get larger and further apart. The inspiration came from @simplynailogical, and has been mimicked many times from what I can tell!
Despite taking forever, this mani was a lot of fun! I am not going to list all the colors (mostly pastel polishes) that I used in the gradient. I had never tried a 5-color angled gradient before that I had to switch angles on! It took some getting used to. But I like how it came out!
I was hesitant to matte this (just in case it got messed up) but I really like the end result. Yay matte finishes!
Go forth and enjoy the other “rainbow” nail art bits!
