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
