Possibly my favorite nail art ever? The SF-Inspired Rainbow Manicure

Atop Bernal Hill

This weekend I painted possibly my favorite-ever manicure! It’s in close competition with my New Years glitter half moon manicure. But unlike that one, this requires pretty much no skills at all! Just a wide selection of polish and a willingness to screw and unscrew a lot of caps. It was a gorgeous San Francisco spring day, almost 80 degrees, sunny, with a light wind. Spring and fall weather is usually a lot better than the foggy summers, so I wanted to celebrate it with a fun manicure.

Here’s the details of each hand:

Hot pink, dark red, red-orange, orange, and yellow

I realized it’s silly for me to paint the same colors on all my nails. I should make better use of my wide selection of polish (combined with my roommates also-substantial stash).

Mint green, emerald green, turquoise, royal blue, and purple from thumb to pinkie.

Hope you enjoy this look and try it out for yourself! It’s hard not to smile every time I look down.
