Step 1: Start with mixing your white and blue together to create a nice, bright sky blue. Lay it down as a base.
Step 2: Next, take your white and outline the bases for the shapes you need. In this case, the mane and eye on the thumb, the lightning bolt and cloud on the pointer, the sun on the middle, and the tail shape on the pinky.
Step 3: In thin stripes, lay down the “rainbows” colour by colour into the white spaces you desire. I started with the red and worked my way to the blue (on the tail). Also, fill in the sun with the yellow.
Step 4: Mix a darker blue colour this time (add less white) and begin carefully outlining the rainbows. Add the little curlicue clouds around the sun, as well as the “feathers” on the ring finger to represent the wings. Make a smaller circle of Purple within the white of the eye to create an iris.
Step 5: Finish off the whole look by adding the pupil into the eye, and carefully outlining the top half of the eye. Add some small lashes on the outer side of the eye, and two small white circles to create life in the iris.
Step 6: Add a topcoat, and enjoy your awesome new manicure!!!
