I used those polishes (from left):
Girly Bits Hippity Hop, Opi Pirouette my Whistle, Perola Paris Torre Eiffel, Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, Essie Lovie Dovie and Essence Icy Princess:

I used two coats of each base colour over Essence XXL Nail Thickener for a start.
For the ring finger of my right hand and thumb of my left hand I used some of the pretty nail stickers I received from my lovely Dutch Instagram friend - thank you so much again, it's so much fun to use them!!!!
Thumb on right hand: one coat of Opi Whistle my Pirouette
Ring finger of left hand: one coat of Girly Bits Hippity Hop and one coat of Opi Whistle my Pirouette
Looking at the result I was 95 % happy - hmmm something was not quite there yet. So I mattified Perola Paris Torre Eiffel using one coat of Orly Matte Top. It translates to a matte finish though with a silky shine. I occasionally prefer this over a plain matte like Essie Matte About You.
I was so happy to have managed a skittle I liked on the first go, I could not stop taking pictures. For good measure I add two of them I took right after application. Despite the pictures being taken before clean-up I still could not resist adding them here..... ;-) The below pictures show the grey of Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather better - in my daylight pictures it looks charcoal.

Do you also have some Blogs that are a strong inspiration to you? Which ones are they? Do you like skittles?
I look forward to reading your comments!!!
Thanks for reading!!
