Funboy Rainbow Cloud Inspired Nail Art Tutorial
Happy Labor Day Weekend nail and beauty enthusiasts!
Today’s nail art was inspired by an incredible”Rainbow Cloud Daybed” pool float i stubbled upon on Instagram from @funboy. Absolutely obsessed with this pool float i knew i had to have it, but shelling out a whopping $169 + tax & shipping for a seasonal pool float was not in my budget.
I stayed patient with the hopes that as the season progressed, maybe they would run a sale. Well, I was in luck and indeed my rainbow cloud pool float did go on-sale for $139! Plus, when i had signed up to their email list and they emailed me an additional 10% off coupon code… double bonus!
So, with my birthday quickly approaching I had to treat myself and all in all i ended up spending $125 w/ free shipping and saving a little over $40 for this amazing 2 person rainbow cloud pool float! I mean, who wouldn’t want to float around on a rainbow cloud?! Right?!
So, today’s nails were inspired by the rainbow! Super easy and not 100% perfectly straight lines either.. so anyone can tackle this fun nail art design!
Here’s what i used to create my rainbow stripe nails:
Base Coat: Probelle Nail Strengthener #2 Base Coat
Base Color: Bright Yellow – Ginger + Liz Playing Innocent
Red Stripe: Essie Fifth Avenue
Peach Stripe: Zoya Laurel
Blue Stripe: Zoya Dory
Turquoise Green Stripe: Essie Naughty Nautical
Purple Stripe: Essie Shade On
Metalic Overlay: Zoya Leia
Top Coat: Dermelect Resist
Step 1: Simply start with a clear base coat to protect your nails.
Step 2: Add 1 coat of Ginger + Liz bright yellow Playing Innocent.
Step 3: Add a thin stripe of red, peach, leaving a space of yellow, blue, green & purple.
Step 4: Add a little sparkle to each nail by brushing a light coat of Zoya Leia over the top.
Step 5: Seal in your rainbow stripes with 1 coat of your favorite top coat. I chose a new base/top coat by Dermelect Resist.
(Resist: A base and top coat nail bitter preventative formula with nail strengthening peptides. With this clear coat comes a very bitter taste to stop prone-nail bitting habits and IT WORKS! I would highly recommend this product to all you nail biters. Not only has it prevented me from nail biting during stressful times, but I have definitely seen a difference in my nails becoming stronger while growing longer. — Dermelect Resist product release date is the end of September. Sugg. retail $15)
