I've been wanting to jump into this challenge but I don't have enough polish to do rainbow! I've been reading the polish thread so I know I'm a weirdo with only three polishes for the past five years. I have rainbow glitter but tomorrow I have a meeting requiring conservative nails. Maybe later in the week.

Hey, toes count too! I did mine in Zoya Storm (black with holographic glitter), I never take pictures of my toes though because I really slop it on and then the edges don't get cleaned up until I take a shower.

Ahh I love everyone's rainbow manis.

I'd be into it but I'm a bridesmaid on Thursday so I had to do something boring and neutral to go with my coral dress.

I have an idea I think will turn out cool, but I need to pick up a yellow (I have none) and maybe a green creme. I looked at the drugstore on Sunday with no luck. So I might have to revise my idea.

Everyone else's are so cute!

Rainbow! The red is Wet n Wild I Red a Good Book, the orange is Wet n Wild Club Havana (looks redder here than it is in person), the yellow is Milani Yellow Whiz (really), the green is Essie Pretty Edgy (purchased ages ago), and the blue is Color Club Insta-This. I like these rainbow nails, except for the yellow. Words cannot describe how much I hate that yellow against my skin tone. It looks even worse in reality because this picture is skewing pretty warm. I've yet to meet a bright yellow that didn't look awful on me, though.

Kitteh and amandabear--love it!

WnW Listening to Blue Reed might be my new favorite polish name.

Sorry for the ginormous picture! I had that pared down practically to avatar size at photobucket because it kept saying it was too big. Grr...

Anyway, I wasn't going to do rainbow this week. I had an obnoxiously bright turquoise and yellow manicure for free week last week because I had a team thing going on (team colors) and I wanted something sedate this week because I was sick of looking at it! But I had all the colors I needed, so I caved.

Red is a pregan Essie that a friend sent me years ago, orange is Zoya Thandie, yellow is Zoya Darcy, green is an old Sinful Colors kelly green that presumably had a name once but there's no sticker, blue is a Zoya color I don't recall the name of*, and purple is OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries (I know OPI is questionable due to parent company issues, but I have a bunch.) Ate Berries is a bright pinkish purple on its own, but layered over the blue, it came out nice and purple!

*It might be Rocky because that's from the same collection as the other two, but it's not ringing any bells. Sorry.

That looks so cute, monkeytoes!

I'm frustrated this week. I've looked at a bunch of stores for the colors I need (yellow and green, preferably creme) and every place has the exact colors I want but in stupid Sally Hansen, Essie and NYC. I don't have a Sally nearby. Blah. I guess I should just get more creative in my interpretation of rainbow but I'm stuck on one idea that I need those colors for.

What's up next? My current mani (pink w/ rainbow glitters - sorry no pics!) has about had it, and I have a day off tomorrow.

You guys have inspired me. I've been painting my nails for a few months, inspired by the main nail polish thread, and now the challenge thread has drawn me out of ppk-posting-hibernation. I have on Zoya Feifei, which I'm counting as rainbow because of the multicolor glitter thing it has going on. I love it.

Well, since bluedawg mentioned she'll be wearing nudes next week for her vacation, how about warm nudes? I say warm so we can use 'cool nudes' in the winter. Summery nudes? I'm immediately thinking of this:

This is after a couple days so there is some wear, but I've been enjoying this! Bonus that it happened to match my crocs. BL cake hole, silly billy, wellies, DL on the beach, OPI iris I was thinner (worst name ever!).

Butternut, I love your rainbow! So bright and fun. I need to get BL Cake Hole.

I will be searching my stash for warm nudes... I was thisclose to buying All Hail the Queen recently, but I held out because I just ordered a bunch of Zoyas. Actually I think one of those (Flynn) will work for this too. MBM, what China Glaze is that? Fast Track? Because I love it.

My choice for Challenge: Warm Nudes (I like to imagine the Chairman from Iron Chef saying that) was Flynn from Zoya's new Cashmere collection. I ended up getting the whole set while they were running their "CAMO" promo, and Flynn was the only one I had doubts about, but I actually love it! It looks really close to my skin color here, but it's a bit darker in person - it reminds me of that camel color that's always popular for coats and stuff in the fall.

Haha, apparently I painted (punz) myself into a corner with this one because I barely have any nudes and Fast Track is definitely the only one that qualifies as 'warm'. The rest are a couple of cool taupes in various shades which i'm not even sure counts as nude.
