Around the World Challenge: 4 – Rio de Janeiro

The obvious choice for Rio de Janeiro would have been carnival, but I wanted to look at a different but equally colourful aspect of this city. I’ve always associated Rio with bright colours and the pictures of its street art I’ve seen have probably contributed to my imagining it as a bright and vibrant place.

A quick google search confirmed that there really is a lot of colourful street art there with one of the most interesting being this project where 34 buildings were painted with bright rainbow stripes to create a community artwork. I loved this inspirational idea and thought it was definitely worth trying to recreate on my nails!


I was feeling a bit too lazy to do the design on both hands, so my right hand just has rainbow stripes rather than the whole building effect.


I used: My Boyfriend Scales Walls – OPI, Warwick Avenue – Nails Inc, Sensation – Color Addict, St James’s – Nails Inc, Psychedelic Orange – Rimmel, Light Blue – Kiko, Matte Aqua – BYS, Where’s My Chauffeur? – Essie, Take it Mint – Catrice, Def Defying – China Glaze, Mellow Yellow – Sally Hansen, Yellow – Sweets Sweet, Miss Grey – GOSH, Dreamer – Revlon.
