Rainbow Diamonds and Dots Nail Art with Models Own Hypergels

Since it's Monday, I can't help but posting what I can probably say is one of my favourite manis to date.  I posted a tutorial for this design on Instagram on Saturday, so if you follow me there you may already have seen it.  I think the final design looks more complicated than it actually was to create.

I used mainly Models Own HyperGel polishes - the base was White Light, then in order of pale yellow to green, it was Graffiti Nails Mellow, 17 Go Go, Models Own Summer Solstice, Models Own Sundress, Models Own Purple Glaze, Models Own Blue Glint and Models Own Turquoise Gloss.

The dotty nails were very straightforward - I just used the dotting tools from the Models Own Nail Art Tool Kit*.  The diamond nails were a little more complicated.  I used the striping tape, also from the nail art tool kit, to do diagonal stripes one way, then diagonal stripes the other way.  I painted in the diamonds with the small paintbrush from the kit and then removed the tape with tweezers straightaway - if you don't do it straightaway the polish peels up.  I topped all the nails with Seche Vite.
