Once in a long while, a holiday comes along that just feels like it's meant for you. And when I found out today was National Nail Polish Day, how could I not want to take part in it? Enter my rainbow manicure ... because a holiday this good deserves more than one color to celebrate!

When I was thinking about the perfect manicure to celebrate National Nail Polish Day, I took a few factors into consideration...

1) Should I use my all-time favorite nail polish color?
2) Should I use a brand that I loved, but try a new color?
3) Should I use five different colors to spread out the nail polish love a little bit?

Obviously I went with option 3 -- because I really felt like I was being too limiting by only using one color on such an important day. I didn't want to leave out some of my favorite brands! But what I ended up doing was choosing five nail polish brands I love, and using colors from each that are in my collection but don't get used often enough. It was a win win!

The five brands I chose really were a no brainer. All hold special places in my heart (and on my nails). I wanted five shades that would complement each other in a rainbow manicure, and surprisingly, these five came together within only a couple minutes of swatching on a piece of notebook paper! These are the shades I chose:

Chanel Coromandel: deep, true candy apple red
butter LONDON Jaffa: bright, almost neon orange
M.A.C Cosmetics Style Matters: the one metallic of the bunch -- a shimmery Kelly green
Deborah Lippmann On the Beach: rich turquoise
Essie All Access Pass: bold, deep purple

I seriously love this manicure even more than I thought possible. I love how all five colors play together and play off of each other. Can it be National Nail Polish Day every day?

How are you celebrating today? What's on your nails? Let me know in the comments!

  2. A loooong time ago, when we were moving to Philadelphia, my mother pointed out a woman at the airport restaurant who had every nail painted a different color. I was mesmerized, and I've always remembered it. So of course, I'm transfixed by your mani!
