Rainbow Honey My Little Pony Nail Art Competition: Rainbow Dash!

Rainbow Honey is an indie brand of nail polish and their upcoming Equestria Collection is based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! In honor of the new upcoming collection, Rainbow Honey is hosting a nail art competition with My Little Pony as the inspiration. So, I did some nails based on my favorite pony - Rainbow Dash! Here is my entry picture - from my thumb to my pinkie it is her eye, hair, wing, cutie mark, and then more hair. My favorite nail is by far the close up of her eye on my thumb; I sponged on a gradient and went back in and did some details after and I think it turned out well. It was super fun trying to figure out what order to do everything in to get it to look the way I wanted.

I am really proud of these nails. They took a lot of sketching and planning and re-doing and re-doing and "Boyfriend, does this look like cartoon horse hair to you?"-ing before they were done.

If you really like these nails, too, then I'd love it if you took a second to vote for me!! You can vote two different ways (and you can do both methods!)
  • 'Like' the picture in her nail art competition album on Facebook by following this link here (bonus points for each time it gets 'shared', too, so if you have an appropriate place to share it and would like to do so - go right ahead!)  
**You can vote for more than one person, too. There is one 'grand' winner who will receive the whole collection, and two runner-ups that will win mini bottles of the whole collection.

I used a rainbow of colors for these. The blue base color on all nails is China Glaze Bahamian Escape (that one in front there), then I used the Milani Nail Art striper in Blue Print to outline everything in the same style as the cartoon.
