BEAUTY: Rainbow Heart Nails

I'm all about bright colors, but sometimes I love the juxtaposition of a colorful rainbow against a muted background. This gray manicure with rainbow hearts fits in with that theme and it's perfectly fitting for this first day of spring, which just so happens to be snowy, slushy and super sunny.

I just hand drew the hearts carefully with the nail polish brush by making two dots (for the top of the heart) and connecting them into a point at the bottom on the heart.

Next time I would use a lighter green (probably mint green) to make it show a little brighter.

I'm working on a DIY nail sticker made from nail polish, which was how this manicure was supposed to be created originally. It's been tricky, but I think I've found a way to make it work. I'll post a tutorial as soon as I have a final product worthy of showing!
