I love this look. It does take a bit of time, but when I do my nails this way, I usually set up shop in the living room while watching television. Most of the time spent is getting the colors just right in the bowl and preparing your fingers for the dip of color. Even though I started using this nail design in the summer, because it went with a lot of my summer clothing, I now create the striped rainbow look for winter too. It just makes the day a bit brighter and more pleasant. When the sun goes behind the clouds, I just look at my nails and know summer is coming.

If you’ve always envied this lively look but didn’t know how to do it, you’ll love this tutorial. I know I wished I had seen it before all the trial and error I went through with other videos to get this fabulous look. Enjoy and maybe there will be a pot of gold at the end of your rainbow. I know I’m hoping there’s one at mine.
