Twinsie Tuesday: Rainbow Mani

Hello and welcome to another installment of Twinsie Tuesday! This week's theme is rainbow mani. I wanted to do some kind of creative twist on a rainbow mani, but given my serious limitations with nail art, I ultimately just settled on an all-neon rainbow.

The polishes I used were: China Glaze Surfin' For Boys, Spoiled by Wet N Wild Did I Dye It Too Blonde?, China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard, China Glaze Frostbite and Studio M Grape Escape. I layered Did I Dye It Too Blonde? over Sally Hansen White On, because it's a complete and utter nightmare on its own. But I was surprised how much I really like it over white! I guess I do have a use for this polish after all!

I tried to take a traditional swatch pic and somehow jam my thumb into the frame, but it looked really awkward, so instead, please enjoy *queue Toy Story voice* THE CLAW.


I don't think this mani is really anything special, but at least I had fun putting the colors together! I also realized I don't own a true neon purple, which I was a bit shocked by. A collector's work is never done!

  1. I like the neon twist! And true neon purples are hard to come by.

  2. I love all the different colors you used for the ombre, they look great together! Neon purple is definitely one of those tricky colors, good ones are very difficult to find!

    1. Thanks!! It seems so weird that you can easily find neons of seemingly any color except purple!
