Pastel rainbow gradient

In case you didn't know, it's Spring here in the southern hemisphere... and today, I'm feeling the season!


This isn't much of a gradient really since the colours don't "blend" into each other. I chose to sponge on the rainbow because I didn't want to mess around with tape and getting straight lines (read: I'm lazy).

What I used:


L to R: OPI What's With the Cattitude, American Apparel L'Esprit, China Glaze Something Sweet, TBN Anna Loves It!, China Glaze Lemon Fizz and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. (They look so pretty lined up together!)

All sponged over a coat of Revlon Powder Puff with stars from plate M17.

I'm loving the way it turned out but I kind of wish I'd done the rainbow on the diagonal - I think it would've looked better that way. Still happy though! It's so cheerful :)

  7. So sweet! This is right up my alley with the pastels and the stars, it's so girly :) And I think the fact that you sponged it helps soften the look, it would have been too sharp if you had taped it off.

  9. Was randomly google imaging for neon gradients and this popped up!  It's so cute, reminds me of Sanrio's Little Twin Stars, perfect for Spring!  Would never have though to do the rainbow on a sponge, must try it.  Love it.

  10. wow, I love the softness of it! A soft rainbow, that's a great idea! and yeah, perfect for spring. I have to remember to try something similar in spring (north hemisphere spring :D ).
    or perhaps I will try before but with other colors...
