Nail Art // Rainbow Jewel Leadlighting for The 30 Days of Colour Challenge

Hello hello lovelies! I have a quick mani to share with you today for my fourth fill in this month's 30 Days of Colour Challenge! Our theme this week was 'Jewels' and I decided to use one of my favourite stamping plates and polishes to do a colourful leadlight mani. :)

Who doesn't love rainbow jewels on their nails?! Over holo no less!

I started this mani off with a polish that is woefully underused in my collection: ORLY Mirrorball! To add a little bit of extra glitter I also brushed on a single coat of Finger Paints Colorful Collage which is a larger holo hex glitter in a clear base. :) Holo-tastic!

When that was dry I stamped on my jewels with Sinful Colors Black on Black and 春の歌-02 Plate from Born Pretty Store* (which I also used for this mani). When that dried a bit to make sure it didn't smear, I did some leadlighting gradients with a small brush and my OPI Color Paints (swatched here ages ago) and then did another layer of stamping to darken the black lines.

If I had to choose a favourite I think I would go with the ring finger because I am a sucker for purple-blue gradients (and duochromes). The colours that came out on my pinky are also really lovely. :)

Rainbows? Check! Jewels? Check! Fabulous mani? Absolutely check!! Haha

Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting! xx
