I just did my first skittlette manicure for a contest being hosted by Marta at ChitChatNails. I've never tried one, and I decided to give it a go for the contest! Take a look!
I used my three new Butter London polishes (thanks mom!) to create this nail art. The magenta-plum creme is Queen Vic, the deep pink microglitter is Fiddlesticks, and the green is Jack The Lad. The gold glequins are from the BornPrettyStore (code for 10% off: PPJ61) and the gold microglitter on my index finger is Orly Prisma Gloss Gold. Sealed with two coats of Seche Vite (Fiddlesticks is a hungry one.)
I'm not really a pink person, but without question I'll make an exception for Fiddlesticks! A rich-toned base with dark flecks and glowing microglitter? Yes, please! Queen Vic is an absolutely perfect two-coat creme, and Jack The Lad is such a stunner, although the gold glequins don't let the true beauty of this polish shine through.
I'm obviously not as talented at artsy pictures as Marta, haha! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be to come up with multiple different nails that would all look good together and form a cohesive look. I have so much respect for Marta who constantly comes up with stunning combinations for her manicures!
I'm looking forward to wearing all of these polishes alone, but I also really enjoyed wearing them together! What do you think of my first skittlette? :)
