I enlisted my boyfriend to help me brainstorm for the "rainbow" prompt, and he immediately suggested Lady Rainicorn from the cartoon Adventure Time. GENIUS!
As you may recall, I love the show. I've even done Adventure Time nail art once before! It seemed pretty obvious that for this design, I would have Lady stretched over my four nails. It's the only way to accurately represent her long rainbow body, and I love multi-nail designs anyway.
The entire design was freehanded with my smallest nail art brush. The toughest part of the whole thing was the black outlining. Other than that, Lady was pretty easy to paint!
Here's a long list of the shades I used and where I used them. I tried my best to match her colors as closely as I could!
China Glaze Are You Jelly? - Purple stripe on body
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky - Yellow stripe on body
China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard - Green stripe on body
China Glaze Man Hunt - Blue stripe on body
Duri Into the Further - Black
Lime Crime Crema De Limon - Mane and tail
Milani White On the Spot - White
Misa Blueberry Blast - Sky background
Misa Ripe Raspberry - Pink on head
OPI The Color of Minnie - Red stripe on body
So, what do you think? Mathematical?
