Dimmed Skittles

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

A while ago I felt like doing a Skittles manicure with some more dimmed colors. I knew I wanted to try the blue Manhunt from China Glaze, And I picked a few other Fall shades to go with it.

The colors are from thumb to pinkie: China Glaze – Urban-Night, China Glaze – Manhunt, China Glaze – Concrete Catwalk, IsaDora – Jaded, China Glaze – Purr-fect Plum.

I went with two-three coats of each polish, and I’m pretty sure it’s Poshé top coat. The photos are taken in cloudy weather.



The bottle I’m holding is Urban-Night, I figured I’d go for that one since it was hard to get my thumb nail in focus with the rest to show it off. I have used most of these shades on their own as well, but I haven’t blogged about them. I usually go for cremes during the work week, and then I haven’t had the chance to get any good photos of them.

I really liked this combination!

A Midsummer Night’s Skittle

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I had big plans for my nails for Midsummer back in June, unfortunately I had a nasty cold so I had to stay home and celebrate on my own, but at least I had a fun manicure to look at =)

I decided to do a Skittles manicure with colors that more or less matched the dress I was supposed to wear.

I decided to do the colors in the reverse order on my right hand.

The polishes L-R: Lovie No. 93, H&M Bella’s Choice, KleanColor Mango, China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze Dance Baby

I think I applied about three coats of each polish, Mango needed four to get even.

And here’s a shot with the dress:

I’m all for happy colors now!
