Manicure Monday - Pride Rainbow Accent Nails

Ciao everyone - I'm home from Italy (and a little tired), but I'm slowly getting back in to everything! 

The OPI polish was received as a PR sample - this post contains affiliate links

This month the #CBBxManiMonday group is switching it up a little bit this month and the theme is Allyship - June is both Pride Month and Indigenous History Month. Each week we will be sharing manis based on our allyship with these causes and sharing resources to help draw attention to, informative information or agencies in our areas that are assisting people. 

I'm also taking my allyship one step farther this month, and each week along with my information and mani, I'm going to be donating $100 to a different organization each week. While I think education and information are fantastic, I also want action and support to come through! 

The products that I used for this week's manicure are:
  • Essie polish is Sugarplum Fairytale 
  • Bundle Monster Art Club red nail art polish
  • Kiss orange nail art polish
  • OPI Don't Tell A Sol polish 
  • Color Club light green nail art polish 
  • Charlotte Russe blue nail art polish
  • OPI polish in Hello Pretty
  • Moyra Top Coat for Nail Stamping
I also used a nail art polish brush for this manicure. 

For this manicure, I started with a base coat and two coats of light shimmery polish as the base coat. Then I freehanded an arc of a rainbow in the corner of the nails - red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple then I finished with a top coat! 

And, of course because I'm doing rainbow nails for Pride month, I'm picking a local Calgary 2SLGBTQIA+ charity to support this week! Calgary Outlink is a community-based, not-for-profit charity dedicated to providing support, education, outreach, and referrals for the 2SLGBTQIA+ and allied communities in Calgary, Alberta. Calgary Outlink is a hub that promotes support and community connectedness for all gender and sexually diverse people. They offer a variety of programs and mentorship in an inclusive space.

I hope you all have a great week - I'm hoping to get back in to posting regularly as soon as I catch up on my sleep! As always, make sure to check out Cosmetic Proof and Prairie Beauty Love to see their allyship nails too!
