Day 9's prompt is rainbow nails! Yay! I like rainbows. Apparently when I was little, I wrote every line of my name in a different color (imagine four different colors in the letter E alone!) - needless to say it took a verrrrry long time! I did a stripey rainbow manicure for one of the PAA Monday Mani Challenges about a month ago, but I wanted to do something different as a lot of people have similarly impressive rainbow digits. Today's is much more subdued, and something fun I haven't done yet - funky french skittles! I tried taping Vs, but they didn't work out very well, so I ended up free-handing (including over the tape attempts on my first two fingers). The base color is Orly Nite Owl.

Bonus end pic for sticking around and reading: aforementioned stripey rainbow nails on my right hand (also totally free-handed!). I don't have a list of shades for this, but I can try if you want me to as I remember the bottles, just not the names. There are three different colors on each finger, but some are hard to see, so look close (especially the red and yellow fingers) :D

gnarly cuticle situation; accept my apologies!

PS. Work started up again, so these posts will be later in the day than before as my schedule is slightly busier now!

PPS. Enjoying these massive pictures? I realized that the vertical ones can be extra large because their horizontal dimension matches up with the horizontal ones this way! If they're too obnoxious, please let me know. And don't forget I leave them large so you can click through for more detail if you want to
