Tutorial: How to Create Rainbow Nails

Rainbow nails are the perfect way to achieve a bold, unique gel nail look quickly and without fuss. The only challenge is choosing the right colours. But don’t worry, we’ve put together the perfect colour combination for you, as well as a step-by-step application tutorial. 


WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Sensationail White Lily gel nail polish


Sensational Pink Chiffon gel nail polish


Sensational Precious Peony gel nail polish


Sensational Jelly Sherbert gel nail polish


Sensational Scarlet Red gel nail polish


Sensational Base & Top coat


An LED lamp to cure your nails between coats


You'll also need...

A buffer

A sponge and dotting tool

A cleanser

We recommend the Sensational Exclusive Deluxe Kit, which contains everything you’ll need to achieve this and many, many more fabulous gel nail looks. It includes 10 colours of your choice, plus tools, nail polish remover and an LED lamp.


STEP ONE: PREPARING YOUR NAILS

To prepare your nails, buff the whole surface of the nail and cleanse. 

STEP TWO

Apply White Lily to your thumb nail. If you’re using your natural nails, you’ll need to apply a base coat first. Cure for 30 seconds under the Sensational LED lamp after each application. Repeat until you have the perfect coverage. 

Then finish off with a coat of Sensational Base & Top Coat and cure for 15 seconds. 

STEP THREE

Apply Pink Chiffon to your forefinger. 

STEP FOUR

Apply Precious Peony to your middle finger. 

STEP FIVE

Apply Jelly Sherbert to your ring finger. 

STEP SIX

Apply Scarlet Red to your little finger. 

For each finger, repeat the same process as in step one, layering the polish until you have the perfect coverage, curing between coats, and finishing off with Top & Base Coat. 

STEP SEVEN

Cleanse your nails to finish.

That's it! You have a perfectly matching set of rainbow gel nails.
