Perfect for those indecisive types.
Unless you never stray from your beloved 'Masquerade', nail appointments usually begin with a spike of stress all caused by one daunting question: "What colour do you want?" When there are easily over 200 shades displayed on the nail salon's shelf, it's an understandably overwhelming decision which might be why the multi-colour, mix-and-match nail polish trend is thriving.
There are two ways to achieve a rainbow manicure: either each nail gets painted an extremely different colour or all five are painted with different shades from the one colour family. It's an inclusive look, ideal for both the decisive person who enjoys reorganizing books by colour and for the indecisive soul who can never decide on where to eat, let alone what colour to paint their nails.

RAINBOW 李 Met with @stellashaybossbae this week for a mani & mannnn I think this is my favorite ever ☺️ If you babes have been following, I got a rainbow mani last year & loved it! I wanted another with some more bright color tones & this instantly makes me so happy when I look down @stellaandshay always nailin’ it (pun intended) // I’ll post a photo of these nail colors on my stories in a second, I remembered to take a pic this time!! Lol. ALL gold rings by @jamesmichelle #FashionablyKayNails #JamesMichelle #StellaAndShay
The finished effect seems tricky to re-create without having a masters in colour theory, but there are several easy ways to get the look:
- Instead of picking one polish from salon shelf, grab as many bottles as you can hold in two hands.
- Next time you're in a hardware store, pick up one of a colour wheel and match your nails to whichever kitchen wall colour your heart desires.
- Revisit the variety of hair colours Lady Gaga wore in 2011.
- Look at a rainbow.
