OMD2 - 31DC - Rainbow (11th!)

Aaaaaah!! I'm so behind on this 31DC #fail I'm actually up to date with my manis but I haven't been able to sit my butt down at my computer to edit pictures and write posts! But I will catch up!

For this "Rainbow" prompt I decided to do a gradient across all my nails. Instead of sponging my gradient I decided to try to use the watercolor technique (tutorial by Young Wild and Polished here). I used 2 colors on each nail, and then acetone and a fan brush swiped down each nail to create the gradient effect.

I swear there is a full rainbow here... my camera disagreed though. The red and orange both look like exactly the same shade of orange. The blue and purple also both look blue. You can see the colors a bit better below... actually the colors still aren't color accurate but at least you can tell that all the colors are there. I'm not sure why the blue on my ring and pinky look so different when it's the exact same blue... Anyway I gave up trying to photograph this mani at this point. I just wanted to throw my camera off my balcony lol

I'm not that happy with the way this turned out either. I like my last mani for a rainbow prompt much more.
