These rainbow nails made their debut during Lindsay Degen’s DEGEN New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 showcase. This fun, colorful nail design stood out from many of the NYFW nails we have seen so far, which have consisted mostly of dark colors, matte finishes and neutrals. It also perfectly complemented her vibrant and appealing apparel and unique set.

This rainbow nail look was designed with various OPI colors including Can’t Find My Czech Book and Alpine Snow, which served as the blue background and white clouds. Push and Shove, Dating A Royal and Toucan Do It If You Try were different nail polish colors included in the rainbow design.

Like this fun NYFW nail look? Here’s how to try it.

You’ll need the following nail polish colors: red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, purple, silver/sparkle and white. In addition, you will also need a clear top coat, dotting tool and a striper nail art brush.

  • Paint your ring fingers with a coat or two of your silver/sparkle nail polish and other nails with light blue. Allow all polish to dry completely.
  • Use your white nail polish and dotting tool to create randomly placed clouds on the nails painted in blue.
  • On your ring finger, use your striping tool to create adjacent, horizontal lines with each of the remaining nail polishes. Start with purple towards your cuticle and work your way up with dark blue, green, yellow orange and finally red.
  • Finish your NYFW rainbow nail look up with a clear top coat.
