I was inspired to do these after watching this nail art tutorial video by cutepolish. It's so simple to do and doesn't take long (around 25 minutes) but I think it looks like you spent so much longer on them. All you need to do them is a dotting tool (free DIY dotting tool) and your colours! If I do these again I think I will do them a mint green changing into a pink and a lilac and pale blue as I think that would look so cute but for this time I just went with the rainbow theme.

Starting with your first colour do a couple of larger dots at the bottom of your nail
Using the same colour but a smaller dotting tool fill in some of the gaps with small dots
Once you've done that just do the same with the next colour in your rainbow just above where the first one finished off
Repeat his until your whole nail is done and then you're finished!

To save time I did all my nails with the lilac, then with the blue etc instead of completing each nail completely before moving onto the next one as it speeds it up and means you don't have to keep cleaning your dotting tools so much.

I can't wait to do this again using different colours as I think it would be really cute! As always please send me a photo if you recreate this nail art look using my tutorial for rainbow dotty nails as I would love to see!
