Freehand Acrylic-Gradient Rainbow/Prism!

Hi everyone! I wanted to create a rainbow gradient with a difference. I began with a white polish and once dry began to add triangles of each colour with my bamboo brush and acrylic paints (it looked like a pin wheel) I then mixed the colours to try and blend all those triangle colours into their neighboring colours. It was quite time consuming but I really like the outcome!

'Acrylic-Gradients' - is a term I sorta made up because I never know what to call what I do in a lot of my manicures. Its acrylic paints blended...instead of a nail polish ombre. I can't remember the last time I even used polish for a gradient. I just think this style looks quite unique and I find them so relaxing to paint.
