Coffee Skittlette

If you missed my post earlier this morning, go enter my 1-Year Blogiversary Giveaway

Today's my first day back to regular school and dance after my trip to Europe and spring break; it's been really nice, but time to get back to regular life!  Today I've got some random skittlette nail art that I did sometime last week; I really like the nail art in neutral colours!  :)

My index finger is A England Jane Eyre with white acrylic paint.  My ring finger is black acrylic paint over Essie Gym Dandy, which I picked up last week while I was waiting for my mom in the dentist.  She was in there for over 2 hours and there's only so long one can sit in Starbucks alone, so buying nail polish was bound to happen. 

The rest of my nails are gradients with OPI Don't Touch My Tutu! and Essie Gym Dandy, with Born Pretty Store black rhinestones.  The whole look (especially the gradients) were looking very coffee-ish to me, so on my right thumb I did a watermarble with the same two polishes to look like the pretty foamy swirls you get in the top of your coffee!

I wasn't so sure about this look when I first did it, but it grew on me and I ended up wearing it for almost three days!  I was pretty sad when I had to take it off to swatch some stuff.  :P

Posting probably won't be quite a frequent for the next few months until the school year is over.  I'm graduating this year, so it's pretty important that I stay on top of my school work.  On top of that, we're charging head-first into rehearsals for multiple shows, and I've still got to try to keep up with the blogging!  I'll  still post as often as I can (hopefully at least 3-4 times per week); I hope you all understand!  :) 


  1. Love it! The design on your index finger is my favourite :)

  2. This looks gorgeous! The gradient goes so well with the other designs :)

  3. gorgeous mani, but where is the giveaway?? I clecked on the link but I couldn't find it :(

  4. The stripes you did are so neat! <3

  5. I really like the different designs in this manicure, and I instantly thought of coffee before I even read your post.

  6. I really love these nail arts with each nail painted different. I also like the colours, I wear a lot neutrals, because they match with everything! :D
