Inspired by Let Them Have Polish’s Epic LGBT Pride Rainbow Mani, Lunachat and Titania decided to show a little LGBT-supporting pride of our own.
Titania: My look was certainly simpler than Let Them Have Polish achieved; I’m just not a co-ordinated nail decorator. But I have had the great fun of saying “The glitter really brings the look together!” all week.
Sometimes I worry about being invisible as a bisexual woman. With a rainbow manicure I’ve had the chance to represent and be a little more out there. And then I remember that I tend to be pretty mouthy about political and social topics that mean a lot to me, so I guess I probably don’t need to rock the rainbow nails to show my colors. But it’s a fun way to do so!
Lunachat: You don’t have to be LGBT to rock the rainbow. This is for all of my sisters and brothers who are brave enough to love with all of their hearts. Today, New York, tomorrow, The World!
Most of you know that I grow bored with a polish after two days and will immediately change it or go bare. This mani lasted five days. And, for me, this is saying a lot. I wish I could have kept it on longer, but alas, chipping and nail growth took its toll. I was absolutely thrilled at the support and compliments that I received on this look.
I painted the typical Red, Orange, Yellow and Green on my left hand fingers and Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet on my right hand fingers. On my thumbs, I painted an interesting marble technique with Lady Muck as a sky base and Pure White Tip to simulate the clouds. I’m going to try this as a full mani soon.
