Best way to die my urine all of the ROY G. BIV rainbow colors? [Not all at once, one color at a time.] The brighter and more vibrant, the better.

As part of an art project, I need to produce some colored urine (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet). Most of my googling has turned up results of people trying to avoid such a thing, or academic/medical articles that are hard to parse. I'm hoping that someone has some life experience or anecdotal evidence (or non-anecdotal evidence) that will help me produce a rainbow of pee.
These are my concerns, in order of importance:
Safety: Anything toxic, poisonous, carcinogenic, etc. is out. Even if 100 grams of aspartame gives me blue urine, I'm not interested.
Speed: I'm hoping to find stuff with near instantaneous results. A mouthful of food coloring and green pee that night would be awesome, eating carrots for a month for orange pee, not so much.
Body Side-Effects: I would prefer to do without discolored tongue and lips for days on end, or different skin tone or colored sweat or anything like that, but I'll do it if necessary.
Anyone know any foolproof, safe and easy ways to produce a clear, dramatic change in my urine from normal yellow to any of the colors of the rainbow?
P.S. I hear large quantities of blue curacao or creme de menthe work for blue and green... anyone know anything about that?
