The Digit-al Dozen DOES Rainbows - Literally

Hi Goddesses

This is my final mani of DD week. I did have a full week of ideas, but heading back to work early put severe stresses on my time.

For this mani, I wanted to use a fan brush to swipe a rainbow across my nails.  It's a technique I've used before and love because all the polishes moosh together, and if you use a holo in there, it creates magical things.

As you know, all week I wanted to use the same polishes, so this mani was done using just cremes and .... I couldn't get it quite right.  I LOVE the thumb, love love love, but couldn't get it to replicate on the other nails.  

The main reason for this is that after a while (2 nails) your fan brush becomes overloaded.  But when you wipe it, it separates, and goes from being a fan brush to a 9 clawed animal, and so you can't get the spread and the moosh you're after.

Luckily, I had a spare, which is the only reason I managed to get the different colours you see on the index nail.  Yep, I actually redid nails for this mani.

I tried it matte, but felt this made it look more like parrot feathers, and eventually settled on matte with glossy raindrops.  What I should have done was chop my other fingers off so that all you could see was the thumb lol .... 

See you soon xx
