31-Day Challenge #9: rainbow tie-dye

The "colors" section of the 31DC is wrapping up with the prompt "rainbow", which just screams tie-dye to me. I decided to try the needle drag method; it's not perfect, and I definitely pressed too hard at times, but for a first attempt I think it came out pretty well.

For some reason my camera couldn't capture the orange at all, even though to the eye it looks quite distinct from the yellow. Maybe because it's neon?

Anyway, I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and added a coat of Out the Door. Then I painted on the rainbow stripes and dragged the tip of a safety pin from the pink down to the purple. The colors I used for the rainbow:
  • pink: Zoya Ali
  • orange: Color Club Psychedelic Scene
  • yellow: Julep Abbie
  • green: Essie Shake Your $$ Maker
  • blue: Zoya Robyn
  • purple: Essie DJ Play That Song

To celebrate the end of this part of 31DC, I made a compilation image of all my color-themed manis! (You can click on each one to see the post.)
