My Epic LGBT Pride Rainbow Mani

Hi my loves!

  It was a busy weekend and I didn't have time to do Muffin Monday because Mr. LTHP is traveling this week. Muffin will be back next week and hopefully Truffle won't butt in haha. Maybe I'll have Truffle do a guest appearance this week to make up for the lack Muffin today.

  So instead since I've been seeing some lovely gals do some LGBT Pride nails I decided to do some as well. What better way to show my support for my friends in the community than with some awesome, kick-ass nails!? This is probably the most fun I've had working on a mani in a while. I used a total of 15 colors and that is a record for me. For this mani I stuck to an all Bettina Rainbow because their cremes and colors are just perfect! So without further delay here are my LGBT Pride Nails!
And what is a Gay Pride mani without some Glitter? Instead of listing what I used I posted a picture of all the colors in order. I think if I try to list all the colors here I will start confusing myself lol. I think the planning for this mani took longer than the actual doing of the mani. This was seriously a lot of fun and I hope I did my friends proud!


So here is all the colors I used. The one with the black cap is #28. The brush was wonky so I had to replace it with an empty bottle brush lol. But anywho, here are all the colors I used, in order.

**EDIT** Bettina purchases!!! Lovelies wanting information of pricing, shipping and purchasing Bettina polishes please shoot an email to janetmrosado@gmail.com (Rosama Distributors-authorized distributors Bettina cosmetics)

Will you be sporting Rainbow Nails this month?

  16. Wow! This is seriously cool! I love that it's fun and looks really intricate but would be really simple with tape and a glitter striper.

  18. Wow, this is awesome! Again! You can't do a failed mani, can you? :) It's not in your system, I suspect. :D It's also a lovely way to support the LGBT community. If I'll have the time, I'll post a rainbow mani for sure! Yours is a masterpiece!

  22. I like to sport my LGBT pride nails at least once a month. Not only does it show support for my community, but it's FREAKING ADORABLE. Who doesn't love rainbows?

    You did an awesome job on this one, the colour choices are fantastic, and I love the glitter streaking! Lovelovelovelovelove. <3

  23. This is PERFECT!!! I absolutely LOVE it! I am so supportive of the LGBT community and equal rights, especially because my best friend in the entire world is gay. For some reason I had never thought of combining that with my love for nails! I will definitely be using this mani as inspiration! Thanks for posting :)

  32. Amazing! This is something I never have seen or would have dreamed of doing! I have a bunch of those really thin brush glitter polishes used for lining/nail art. I AM going to try a Gay Pride mani! And yes, totally agree - has to have glitter! I have been doing a line of silver across the tip of my pedis lately - getting lots of pos. compliments.

  33. This is so awesome! I posted the link on my fb to show to my friend and lots of them thought it was an awesome mani! I'm going to Toronto's Pride on Sunday and this is definitely an inspiration for whatever mani I end up doing. So awesome!!!
