Today I have a very spring mani to share with you today. I have never really done the "skittle" look on my nails other than one time I can recall as a teenager. Even then it wasn't quite right, I only owned a few polishes and it was hard to find the right polish and finish that worked well together.
Now that my polish collection has fully expanded, I have many polishes to choose from which I can group together to use for one mani. For my spring skittle mani I used the following polishes from pinky to thumb:
Color Club's Take Me To Your Chateau, a very light pastel blue.
American Apparel's L'esprit, a medium toned pastel purple.
American Apparel's Summer Peach, a very light pastel orange.
China Glaze's Lemon Fizz, a light yet bright pastel yellow.
All of these polishes applied wonderfully with the exception of Lemon Fizz. I have always had application issues with this polish. Once I added thinner application became easier. Other than the China Glaze polish I have never worn any of these polishes before, although I was very happy with them :) If applied carfully I could have gotten away with only one coat, but I chose to go with two.
I love the way this turned out, after applying this I went for a walk with my brother to pick up a PS3 game and got a compliment from the cashier :)
This was just the base for my Easter mani which I will show you tomorrow. What do you ladies think of the skittle look? I really enjoyed the pastels because I feel it as a softer take on the usually bright skittle I have seen in the past.
