FingerFood's Theme Buffet:Rainbow Chakra nails

Hi friends

Well I hope you all had a good week and are enjoying your weekend so far?
I have been unwell lately but trying to catch up on my blog posts/nail art I am a little late in posting my nailart for FingerFood's Theme Buffet: theme Rainbows

 I decided to do a spiritual theme for this prompt Chakras

What is a Chakra?

In many spiritual and healing disciplines, and in the world of complementary medicine the words Chakra pops up quite a bit. That’s fine if you know it they meana; not so great, and I must say pretty confusing, if you don’t. Here’s our simple summary of the 7 Chakras that covers what a Chakra is, and what the Chakra System is all about?

The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through.

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex like, powerhouse of energy. Within our bodies you have seven of these major energy centres and many more minor ones.

You can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries.

They are charged and recharged through contact with the stream of cosmic energy in the atmosphere in much the same way that your home is connected to a central power source within a city – the only difference is that this cosmic energy source is free.

Here is a list below of the items I used to create my Chakra nailart.

  • Saffron glitter topper.
  • Tarastalons polish in No 186 (Holo)
  • Sinful colors polish in  Dream on.
  • Tarastalons polish in No 193.(purple)
  • Barry M Gelly polish in Blueberry.
  • Technic party brights polish in AYA NAPA.
  • Rimmel polish in Spring Yellow.
  • Tarastalons polish in Tigerlilly.
  • BeautyUK polish in Coral Burst.
  • Laval polish in White.
  • Make-up sponge.
  • Rhinestones
  • Marker pen in Black.

I started with the Tarastalons holo polish as a base for all the nails apart from the thumb nail.
I did a gradient effect on the thumb using a make-up sponge using some of the polishes above to make a rainbow gradient effect.
I then used the glitter topper to blend it all and then I hand drawn the Buddha's face with the marker pen.
I placed the Rhinestones down the centre of the ring finger and used the dotting tool to dot the Chakra colours down each nail. but to make the dotted colours pop I dotted the white polishes first then went over it with the colours.all done :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and my nailart.
