Rainbow nail designs are a great way to satiate your need for color. They make great nail designs for summer, and although they often look complicated, it might surprise you when you find out how easy they are to create.
Most rainbow nail designs use the basic shades of the rainbowâ€”red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. However, different hues can be used to create different fun effects. Consider neon rainbow nail designs or pastel rainbow nail designs, for instance. Also, if you don’t have all of the colors of the rainbow, you can use just the colors you have or mix primary colors of nail polish to make secondary colors.
