Creative musings in bright colors

Watery Rainbow

I keep seeing posts from the “A Night In Vegas” collection, which is best known for being (1) rainbow in color and (2) perfect for water marbling. So I went and grabbed the closest thing I had and went to town.


Things I learned: I don’t have a medium pink that isn’t too dry to water marble with. I also don’t actually have an orange creme (that isn’t a pastel) so my orange shimmer spreads too much…hence most of the nails are mostly orange. I really like how my ring finger came out, because I somehow avoided most of the orange. This manicure barely looks like it matches itself!

~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie
~ Yellow: WOW – #301
~ Green: Essie – The More The Merrier
~ Teal: Salon Perfect – Escape to Neverland
~ Blue: Zoya – Ling
~ Purple: Sephora X – Ignition


I ended up painting over this with a probably-too-complicated design that you’ll see in its own post during the 31 Day Challenge next month for rainbow day. I think I have a problem…the July OMD 31 Day Challenge just barely ended and I’m already jumping back in?! But some of my favorite nail art bloggers are doing it and I usually really enjoy it…so I have to! Although Chalkboard Nails won’t be posting daily on her blog, just IG. And I don’t have IG. But this also means I can’t look at everyone else’s nails so I might need to figure out how to embed inlinkz so everyone (aka me) can see all the other nail arts!

  1. I, too, am not big on orange but in the USA, is it OK to discriminate against a single color?
    Seriously, the nails you do not like happen to be very lovely, in my eyes!! Nice work, I think.

  2. These are perfect! 🙂

  3. Why IG you not have? LoL you should really think of setting up an account. I also said never but I’m glad I did.

    • Yah, I know! It just feels like giving in somehow, don’t ask me why! I’ll probably get one eventually, but I like having the blog more…I like talking about the art rather than just seeing it!
