Somewhere over the rainbow #

Morning possums :)

After seeing Leanne's rainbow nails, I decided to give it a bash!

What do you think?

  1. Oh wow, it's really cool! Love it. I still have to get some of that nail effects, can never see it in stores, always sold out :(

  2. Wow! Your nails look awesome. Was making the base rainbow hard to do?

  3. Nic - Thanks :) Aww that's a shame! Xxx

    Lauren - Thanks! No but it was time consuming xxx

  4. This looks amazing!! I can't wait for the china glaze ones to come out here x

  5. WOW!! They look amazing! I'll have to try it sometime! :D xxx

  6. Oh wow. That is so cool, especially with the Nail Effects over the top :) but the colours all together remind me of something I can't quite place....hmmmm! No idea what ^_^"

  7. Kaushal - Thanks! Same here! Xxx

    Whimsical Wolf - Thanks xxx

    Leanne - Haha thanks xxx

    Kat - Thanks xxx

    Laura - Thank you xxx

  8. They look so good Kim!
    I'd love to try something similar but I think my Barry M polish has dried up so i'm not sure it would look as good as yours! xx

  9. Thank you :) Oh no way? I've heard that's happened to lots of people. I was lucky and mine hadn't but I did notice it wasn't as good as the first time I used it. Bit of a fail on Barry M's part I think xxx

  10. Hi Kim,

    I'm really glad someone else has done a post on this nail polish, as after seeing it on Leanne's blog as well, I went out and managed to snap it up right away. However, when I went to try it out, I found it really difficult to apply. Obviously, you'll knwo to get the effect you only need one layer, but my nails take two layers side by side to cover, and they kept blending, and then the look didn't work, plus the formula came out on the brush v. heavy. You couldn't recommend any tips on getting my nails as FAB as yours?
    Also, did you find it as horrendous as me to remove? I honestly ended up having to file it off my nail :O

  11. Hi Steph :) I have to say that I had the same problem with the formula of Nail Effects. It doesn't work so well if it overlaps and it dries quite quickly so that doesn't help as one brush full doesn't cover the entire nail. Rather than applying like normal polish, I did two strokes of the brush on each side of the nail and tried to make sure that the polish didn't overlap. It takes longer but that's how I managed it. I also found it hard to remove! I don't think I'll be using it again to be honest with you. I might try the OPI or China Glaze crackle polishes to see if they fare any better. Hope that was useful! Xxx

  12. Love it! It looks really creative and cool:)

  13. Ahh Kim thank you, I will try your advice. Do you think if I slathered on a base coat, then my colour, then the nail effects, with a top coat on, it'd be easier to remove?


  14. Possibly but the more layers you have, the more prone you are to peeling I find. A top coat may help but I've not tried it. If you do try it, let me know how it goes xxx
