Making Pinterest Real: Rainbow Cupcakes & Rainbow Nails!

Posted By: Leah

In honor of St. Paddy's Day this weekend, here are two rainbow-themed projects I attempted from Pinterest:

Pinterest Project #1 - Rainbow Cupcakes
The above pic is from pinterest. I found the air heads sour colorful ribbons in the $1 section at Target, Score! I had wanted to make them forever, and ended up making them for my sister's 22nd birthday.

 I had a white box cake mix and white frosting. I added lots of food coloring to the batter.
 They turned out really well!
Except for the rainbows on top. They totally slid off the frosting :/

Pinterest Project #2 - Rainbow Swirl Nails

BF sent me this pic he found on Pinterest. He loves color. And lots of it.  Here's a pic I snapped of the shoes he got when we were in NYC. We go out, he wears them and gets non-stop complements:
 Anyway, so to do the color swirl nails, you get a bowl of water, drop a bunch of nail polish colors in, swirl with a toothpick, then dip your nails in.

... and here's my result.  

Yeah... kind of gross. Maybe if I used fancy china glaze nail polish like in the pic above they might have turned out better? I won't call this one a total fail, but it wasn't pretty.

Have you made anything from Pinterest for St Patrick's Day?


  1. that whole nail polish thing sees so messy. was it terrible?
