Rainbow gradient nails decorated with black foil lace

Hello lovelies,

I love colourful manicures and this one is just spot on! It's a rainbow sponge gradient finished off with black lace foil.

Firstly I've painted my nails with OPI Alpine snow which makes the colours nice an vivid. Then I've used a corner of a makeup sponge to apply following polishes: China Glaze Sunshine Pop, China Glaze For Audrey, OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?, China Glaze Dance Baby, China Glaze Poinsettia. I purposely went for a grainy look otherwise I would paint stripes of colours on the sponge to achieve more blended look. I've sealed the colours with a coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

When it all dried I've applied a thin layer of foil glue and let it dry. Then I applied a black lace pattern foil (I got mine from Rio Beauty) and sealed again with topcoat. Lace foils are a bit problematic as sometimes they don't stick properly. I found the result good enough this time :)

Hope you like it!
