Autism Awareness Mani: Rainbows

Different Shades of Blue Day 2: Rainbows

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today is going to be a nice day here.  A few awesome things that have happened recently due to the past few days of the warm weather...all of the grass has turned green after being brown for so many months, I got to wear sandals for the first time this year, and the asparagus in our garden is starting to come up.  It's the little things right?  :)  Today is day two of the Autism awareness challenge.  I couldn't figure out if rainbows meant traditional rainbows or a blue rainbow so I went with a blue rainbow.  I have to say this is one of my favorite manicures that I've done and I was sad to take it off.



  

I started with two easy coats of Zoya Blu, a creamy pastel blue that I adore.  I had a stamping plate from Winstonia that resembled a rainbow so I decided to go for that.  I took three shades of blue polish, OPI Eurso Euro, Essie Butler Please, and Essie Avenue Maintain, and created a blue rainbow gradient on the stamping plate.  This was my first use of my newly purchased Winstonia plates and I loved the quality and how crisp the images came out.  What do you guys think?

  9. This is fabulous! And thank you...I wasn't sure what blue rainbows meant either so I went all blue too. So glad I'm not the only one!
