A Skittle, Layered.
Hello, Fireflies! Today's skittle is a little different. I wanted to see how layering a polish over different bases created the mani.
I started with (thumb to pinky): Chick Nail Polish Once Upon A Time, a pink with orange shimmer; Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, a sunny yellow creme; Cult Nails Kiss, a matte tomato red; I Love Nail Polish Undenied, a metallic purple duochrome; and Wet 'n Wild Black Creme.
I built up the thumb with a few more layers of Chick Nail Polish Once Upon A Time, and then put that same polish over all the other nails. What a cool transformation!
It turned Mellow Yellow into an orange sunburst, and the black creme into a dark, purple shimmer.
But, I think my fave has to be the effect over I Love Nail Polish Undenied. It amplified the duochrome, and now there's all kinds of reds and purples in it. Neat-o Jet!
As different as all the colors were, now they could almost pass for an ombre' mani. Do you ever layer polishes for different effects?
