company magazine rainbow nail art

I saw a tutorial for these nails in company magazine and just had to try them (thanks for the inspo you wonderful bunch!)

the tutorial is a simple one but if you drink a gallon of tea a day like me I'd recommend you do these before the caffeine shakes kick in! 

(if you want these to be really perfect you can always paint a set of false nails and stick them on once dry!)
start with a blue base coat (I used illamasqua nobel) use a white nail art pen to draw on cloud shapes.
next draw in a white rainbow shape emerging from the cloud.
use yellow, pink and green stripes for  the rainbow and leave to dry.
finish off by outlining it all with a fine brush or black nail art pen!

I did these quite quickly so I'm not 100% happy with them but I love the design, definitely one I'd do for a festival or day out at the seaside! 

have you seen the nail art tutorials in company? tempted to try out any of the others? 

back soon!
