For A Weekly Dose of rainbows this week we were doing a Rainbow Mermaid inspired manicure. I went with some scales in some bright colours. I thought about sticking with 3 colours but it really looks best with a whole load of different shades mixed together.
I started out by painting the outline using Max Factor Red passion. I had planned on going over this with a glittery red topper but it really didn't need it. I then filled in all the little gaps using the polishes listed below. I topped it off with the Catrice Have an ice day topper to smooth it all out and make it sparkle. It turned out really well but it was so time consuming!
