April Showers Challenge - A Rainbow After The Rain

Hello everyone :)
Another April Showers Challenge post from me today :) This one was so much fun, I had so many designs I thought about doing. You can google rainbow nails and get so many different kinds of nail art, I was overwhelmed with things to try :P In the end I settled on something, so here it is...
I decided I wanted to do a pretty blue sky and rainbow and cloud kind of design after the gloomy colours from the last mani. So I sponged OPI What's With The Cattitude? over OPI Alpine Snow to look like the sky. I then used a dotting tool to create the rainbow design with H&M Berry Love (red), OPI In My Back Pocket (orange), China Glaze Happy Go Lucky (yellow) and Models Own Jade Stone (green).
For the ring finger I sponged H&M Berry Love, OPI In My Back Pocket & China Glaze Happy Go Lucky onto my bare nail. I really love how this sponged nail worked out. I really like how it looks over a bare nail, I think doing it over a white base would have made it brighter and would have taken too much focus away from the other nails.

I really want to try this again with my nail art brushes to create the rainbow, I think it'd be a lot smoother that way. This will be a really great mani for the summer moths, I think I'll be sporting it quite often :P

Have you used sponged in mani's before? What tips do you? Let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)
