Pastel Rainbow Pinwheels , Pink Lemonade , and New Nail Shape

When I got the Lime Crime Polishes set that I reviewed here,  I knew I had to create some nail art with them. So when I was swatching them I had the pink and the yellow together and Pink Lemonade popped into my mind. I have to say it wasn't the big success I had imagined for it but it still turned out well. If I branched out into other polishes I think it would have been better but since I was sticking just to the Lime Crimes I didn't have access to the extra variety of colors. Mostly the white color was not white enough for it to stand out against the yellow so I had to bring in the orange to make the lemon segments pop out some. Now since the pink lemonade did not use all the colors I wanted to do one more design. Months ago I did Rainbow Nail Art where I used the colors of the rainbow.  I LOVED it so much I wanted to try it again.  I knew I could easily use of of the colors together and recreate that look using the pastel Lime Crimes. This one really hit the spot!
At the very bottom you will see that I've recently changed the shape of my nail. I've been wanting a change. I was gonna do a chop but then this time around I remembered how after I chop down my nails I always go I should have tried a dramatic Almond nail shape. Well I finally succeeded in remembering before it was too late! I admit I was very nervous since I'm not very familiar with the Shape. However I was okay if I didn't succeed because if it looked really bad then I was prepared to cut to nubbins. I've always thought the pointy stiletto was a bit too much for my taste but it's really growing on me. I know from experience that I can't really do a rounded nail shape because of my clawed index finger. Looking at some of my older posts really help me remember that clearly! So I'm curious to see how this new shape will work out. So Far I love it, My nails look all thin and lean now! If only I could reshape the rest of my body so easily.... one can wish! 
fyi... still have some older posts I need to get through so there will be some flip flopping of different nail shapes and lengths till I get fully caught up! I don't know many bloggers who have had so many nail identities like me! hah But what can I say sometimes I just gotta have change!

    1. There's a mini tutorial on here: http://www.manicureaddict.com/2011/11/challenge-day-9-rainbow-nails.html I just basically did one swirl and just kept building on the one swirl with the next colors. It looks complex but it's rather simple just takes a little time

  7. Loving the new shape, I've always envied super long nails because I always wanted to try a stiletto shape (I think that's what it's called)
    I'll second the notion on the serious need for the invention of a body file...
