Zoe Foster Blake’s rainbow mani is weirdly wearable

Zoe Foster Blake’s Incredibly Wearable Rainbow Manicure

It’s actually *work appropriate*

Beauty Crew Junior Beauty Writer / May 15 2019

Want to rock a rainbow mani but worried it might turn a few too many heads (especially those of HR) at your corporate nine-to-five gig?

Yeahhh, we feel you… Well, actually we don’t, because even an at-desk masking sesh will fly with our boss over here at Beauty Crew HQ (all in the name of research, obvs) – but that’s beside the point…

Beauty guru Zoe Foster Blake has (yet again) come up with a beauty fix that we’re sure would comply with even the strictest of workplace dress codes.

Rainbow manicure but make it neutral 💅 At least my nails are ready for #Meccaland, even if my face - scratched by a one-year old savage a day after I'd had laser - isn't. (I put the bottles/brands/colours in my stories for anyone wanting a similar gel lewk. Mostly cos it took ages to get the graduation of lighter to darker tones right and I don't need any of you wasting good time on that shit.)

Isn’t it snazzy?! We like!

The subtle variation of pink and nude tones gives a gorgeous rainbow-like effect, without the usual “LOOK AT ME” brightness of your regular rainbow nail look. It’s subtle, sophisticated, but also a lil fun!

So next time you’re sitting in the nail salon asking yourself “to rainbow, or not to rainbow?” simply whip out this pic and let your nail tech go to town with a multi-tonal mani.

And if you’re feeling really wild, you could even take it up a notch by adding in a feature nail with a subtle sparkle.
