Finger Food's Theme Buffet: Rainbow Gem Nails
Gems can be a funny thing because when you get them in a wheel they all look like they're the same... same size, same shape, just different colours. But when you put them on the nail you might start to notice a difference! Case in point: this wheel had extra tiny red gems and larger-than-normal pink gems. :/ Kind of an annoying thing when you're trying to use a line of gems to create a rainbow line for a challenge fill! Ah well. Sometimes we just gotta roll with it, right? :) Let's focus on the positive and take a better look at my fill for this week's Finger Food's Theme Buffet: Rainbow!
I started this look with two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and when that dried I used a coat of my current non-fast dry top coat - Golden Rose Mega Shine Top Coat. I then quickly placed my gems using a toothpick.
This is a lot simpler of a look than I intended to do for this challenge! But sometimes simple is best. :)
Check out the other fills for this challenge theme below!
Have you been surprised with gems in the same set unexpectedly being different sizes before? Is it something you think you would be able to ignore, or would it bother you as much as it bothers me? I'd love to hear your perspective, haha. :)
Thanks for visiting!! xx
