This mani was a disaster, but a very colorful one! Ergo, rainbow day in the 31 Day Challenge. To achieve this craziness, I tested two types of polish (metallic vs jelly over silver), three ways of applying the polish (small splotches, big splotches, and stamper squish), and 5 stamps. Hilariously (aka sadly) when I had finally settled on colors, method of application, and stamp…the application didn’t work! It looked awful. So I switched and it took forever to correct the mistake, but the end result was super shimmery and colorful regardless :-p
The design itself was inspired by Fashion Polish, although I don’t own those type of bold jellies nor do I own a stamp even close to what she has! So I improvised. All my stamps didn’t look anything like hers so I gave up and went with a different fun stamp instead.
I liked both the matte and shiny versions of this mani! I matted it at the end cause that is what she had done…but I don’t know how I feel about it vs the shiny! Any votes for either direction?

So many colors! I don’t actually own a bright purple metallic, so I used a subtle shimmer instead. My only purple metallics are in the dark-to-very-dark range. I hand’t realized!
I hope you enjoyed!
