for my rainbow prompt i really wanted to do the balloons from up. i’d seen this manicure a few times before (here are some examples). i should have re-looked at these before doing mine. i went way overboard with the balloons. and the strings. eh.
i do really like the base color i used though (essie saltwater happy). to be honest i cheated with that color – i don’t have any / many blues in my collection. this one i painted the base coat while at walgreens today. i’m too cheap for this habit!! i love essie polishes but $8.50 a bottle is killing me! who knows though – i like this one enough i may go buy it anyway.
