My first Skittlette!


Hello, Fireflies!

This month, the NCC challenge theme is the Skittle.  According to ChitChatNails, there are several formulas for a skittlette, of which I chose the most common - Creme, Creme, Stamp, Stamp, Glitter. I figured, since it was my first one, I should take it slow and steady.

I used Ulta Whatever Floats Your Moat, a blue jelly; OPI I Have A Herring Problem, a grey-blue with silver shimmer; and Liquid Lacquer A Calm Does Not Suit Me, a milky white base with blue and purple glitters.

I used Revlon Spirit and Dashika Big SdP-L to make this pattern over the OPI.

And, for the pièce de résistance, I chose some grey-blue rhinestones and placed them in my Nail Veil, which I then attached to my thumb with some topcoat.

I love that I can color-coordinate my Nail Veil!

I'm not sure how I feel about skittlettes - or even skittles - but I love nail jewelry.  What say y'all?

    1. That's the Nail Veil - it's real, reusable jewelry. I can put whatever stones I want in it, and it can be cleaned with acetone. It's really pretty sturdy.
