Inspired By: Rainbow Doodles

I’m currently enjoying the last day of my 4 day weekend so I hear the impending womp womp music in my head for tomorrow morning. I’m really enjoying the idea of keeping up these “Inspired By” posts because I hope it will push me to do more creative things. Last time I did the rose and chevrons mani that I really liked, so I hope that you like what I have for you today. For today’s post, I picked this fun rainbow doodle from Amy’s pinterest post and we set out to create our own interpretation of it.

rainbowdoodlesDoes this look like snakes to you? Like rainbow snakes….or maybe rainbow spaghetti?

12To start with, I used this arch design from MoYou London Pro Collection – 02 (press sample) and stamped with Mentality Opaque Black stamping polish. I think that this has replaced my love for my Konad Black stamping polish for a few reasons: 1) It’s cheap 2) It stamps very well and very opaque 3) It does not stain like the Konad!!!!! For my white base, I used my favorite white polish in the whole wide world: Jessica Sharktooth (press sample).

34Ok, so I’m super irritated with all the bubbling going on in this mani. I used all 4 OPI Sheer Tints (press sample) to fill in the design, but because they are so thick and gummy, it’s really hard to manipulate them. Since I applied them a little thick, bubbling was inevitable. Despite the bubbling, I still find the overall effect really fun.


Lastly, I mattified the whole thing with my favorite Matte Top Coat from OPI (press sample). I think that the matte top coat hides the bubbles a bit so I’m all for that. I’ve had this matte top coat for a while, and it has not gotten gunky or weird at all.

So what do you think about this mani? Minus the bubbles, I really like how this turned out. Make sure that you check out the other manis below to see how the other ladies interpreted the design inspiration. Thank you for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. LOVE THIS! I have the solution for this bubbling situation: forget the Sheer Tints and try Dance Legend Top Aquarelles. I love the effect Sheer Tints give but the more I use them, the more I hate the honey-like weird formula. I recently tried out Top Aquarelles and they are DA BOMB. They are thinner and runny in a good way so they are easier to work with and they don’t lead you to bubblytown. I recently bought five more and I can’t wait to play with them!

    1. Ugh! You hit the nail on the head with your description–they are like honey and get goopy so fast when you’re trying to work with them. I haven’t tried any other brands for something like tints, but thank you so much for the recommendation. I will definitely look into them.

  2. Bubbling!!!!!!!!!! That’s the worst. I swear to
    God I get filled with a murderous fiery rage when I get bubbles. I didn’t even see them until you pointed them out and I blew up the pic but dang… How annoying. I think I like these matte best anyway so yay for hiding the bubbles. 🙂 These look awesome and are a PERFECT cousin to the Rainbow Doodles pic. I actually didn’t know the sheer tints were so gummy. How disappointing. :-/
