Twinsie Tuesday - Skittle Mani

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to another Twinsie Tuesday ;0).

Today's theme was to post a skittle manicure.  For those who aren't familiar with this term, a skittle mani is when  you have a different polish color on each nail.  This was my first time doing one of these.  While I love the look, it is way out of my comfort zone to have a different color on each nail.  For me, it's one color for my manicure.  I'll throw in an accent nail, sure, but that's pretty much the extreme of it.  Also, a skittle mani is not very appropriate for my job.

On to the mani!  Here's a pic of the polishes I used:


Sally Hansen Fuschia Power, Revlon Lily, Sally Hansen Jade Jump, OPI Pink Friday, and POP Beauty Baby Blue
Can you tell I was going for a spring look? 

Here's how the mani turned out:

For the base, I used Essie All in One Base and my top coat was Seche Vite Fast Dry.  I used two coats of each polish.

I really like the way this mani turned out.  It definitely put me in a fun mood. 

What do you guys think?  Have you done a skittle mani before?






Don't forget to check out my twinsies!!  I'm looking forward to seeing what colors they chose.

  15. I'm a lot like you, girl. Just one color for my manis. I guess I'm a fan of the uniformity. Accent nails are fun sometimes though.

    Your skittles turned out cute though!

  18. Despite the fact that you say this is out of your comfort zone, the colors you chose are AWESOME!
    I like how they play together!
    I haven't tried a skittles manicure but have enjoyed the gradient/ombré look. Maybe that would be a more subtle shift that you would like too!?
