Rainbow Brite Inspired Mani (80s Baby Week)

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Welcome to Day 2 of 80s Baby Mani Week on LuvMyLacquer. I hope you guys enjoyed yesterday's post and are looking forward to bringing back some great memories this week. Okay, so, how many of you remember the awesomeness that is Rainbow Brite? If you recall in yesterday's post, I mentioned that one of my Instagram followers noted a few cartoons from the 80s and this was one of them. So, ravensolovely, this one's for you!


For this mani, I created a rainbow colored franken which I appropriately named Rainbow Briiite (yes, 3 "i's" lol). I added some rainbow matte glitter and tiny holographic glitter into my base and voila!


I began my mani with a base of Essie Grow Faster followed by two coats of Bettina Marshmallow. Marshmallow is an off-white or cream colored white. It's not stark white and it's not yellowish, it's perfect and I loved the way it looked on my skintone.


On every nail but my accent finger, I layered on a coat of Rainbow Briiite. I then took the brush and dabbed a few spots that seemed to be missing a litter rainbow glitter lovin'. I was surprised at how smooth this polish went on. For my accent nail, I used the stars on Cheeky image plate CH4 and a variety of polishes: Bettina Mojito (green), Bettina Secret Garden (purple), Bettina Sunrise (yellow), Bettina Vintage (blue) & WetNWild Red Red (red, obviously). I topped this manicure with a coat of Color Club's top coat.

Ooooh, you can see the tiny holographic glitters really good here!

This is such a fun mani & I already know I am going to hate taking it off! I love the colors so much and the stars are perfect. Ravensolovely, I hope I did you proud with this mani! Did you guys notice anything different about these pics? They were taken in a lightbox that I made. I usually take my pics outside in the sun but it was late at night when I did this mani and the sun was long gone. What do you think of the pictures? As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
