Discover the Top 3 Rainbow Nail Polishes – Kara Reviews the Best Rainbow Polishes of 2019!

Along with unicorns and diamonds, rainbows are trending strongly at the moment, and I can understand why. Filling us with awe and a sense of magic, who doesn’t love a rainbow. 

Rainbows are caused by the refraction and dispersion of the sun’s light by raindrops, and are usually seen when the rain isn’t falling in our specific area, but somewhere nearby, or when the sun bursts through the rain clouds. 

Comprising of seven colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, it’s a symbol of hope and wishes fulfilled, thanks to the pot of gold that’s absolutely, definitely at the end. Rainbows remind us that everything is possible, even achieving our heart’s desire.

Rainbow manicures have been popular forever, and there are a myriad of ways to create them. Nail stickers are simple to use and super quick, while airbrush kits are more complicated but offer a vast array of finishes. One easy method that creates uniquely subtle rainbow effects is to sponge the design onto your nails. 

Once you’ve prepped your nails, paint colored polish in rainbow stripes – or any other design, onto a small cube of sponge. Roll this carefully across your nail bed, leaving the excess polish on your nails. Repeat across all nails, adding more polish to the sponge as necessary, and finish with two top coats.

However, an even simpler method is to choose one of these awesome rainbow nail polishes. 

 

1) KBShimmer Nail Polish with Rainbow Glitters

What Makes it Great

This funky, fabulous polish from KBShimmer not only comes in a larger-than-average bottle, but is stunningly eye catching, uber stylish and daringly different. Rainbow colored sparkles on a dazzling white background is reminiscent of an artist’s splatter painting, but delicately pretty, too. I love it, and it lasted over two weeks before I, sadly, had to remove it due to chipping. 

Where it Could be Improved

To achieve a multilayered effect, I had to apply several coats.

If you’re looking for something really different, a polish that no one else will be wearing, choose this one. You won’t regret it!

2) Orly Nail Polish – Turn it Up

What Makes it Great

Looking at this polish in the bottle, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I used it over a white polish, but you could choose black for a darker, edgier look. Against the white, the rainbow colored sparkles pop with energy and fun, lighting up a room. I was paid so many complements whilst wearing this Orly polish, that even after nearly two weeks, I hated removing it. 

Where it Could be Improved

It obviously hated leaving me, too, as it hung on tenaciously, until after a bit of effort, I won!

3) Color Club Nail Polish – Shimmering Sky Colors

What Makes it Great

Color Club’s holographic polish contains every rainbow hue and more. Over a white base, it gains a pearlescent shimmer that’s uber stylish and chic. With full on sparkles, the effect is attention grabbing and impossible to avoid. Vegan and cruelty free, and minus the harmful chemicals that often lace polishes, it was two weeks before I saw the first chip. 

Where it Could be Improved

Like many holographic polishes, the odor was quite strong. However, an open window soon fixed that.
