Skittlette "Seafoam" featuring Models Own Bloo Bloo

Finally time to practise Skittlettes. Marta from Chit Chat Nails really got me hooked on them. Again I started out with a polish that sat already since a while in my stash of untrieds: Models Own Bloo Bloo. I got that one in a duo along with Models Own Indian Ocean. Please meet Bloo Bloo's pals:

From left to right: Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream, Max Factor Dazling Blue, Models Own Bloo Bloo, Opi Skull & Glossbones, Ellen Gold Crystal Opala

I found Models Own Bloo Bloo a bit thick and not entirely selflevelling - I probably should have waited longer in between applying the layers. Still it was pretty easy to apply and it is such a lovely soft blue, I just love it.

Ring of left hand and middle of my right hand and both thumbs: three thinner coats of Models Own Bloo Bloo

Index of left hand and pinkie of right hand: two coats of Models Own and one coat of Max Factor Dazling Blue (Dazling Blue is very sheer and I use it for layering only).

Pinkie of left hand and index of right hand: three coats of Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream

Middle of left hand and ring of right hand: two coats of Opi Skull & Glossbones (sigh - one of my Opi favourites). On my middle finger I applied one coat of Ellen Gold Crystal Opal (what a pity, I could not get the holo particles to really sparkle - it is so sparkly IRL)

I used Nailstickers from MAX which I got from my lovely Dutch Instagram friend!!!

I used China Glaze Ridge Filler as Base Coat and Essie Good to Go as Top Coat.

I ordered Models Own Bloo Bloo with Harlow & Co, Deborah Lipmmann Mermaid's Dream with Revolve Clothing. The Opi and Max Factor I bought with a local beauty store. Ellen Gold Crystal Opala was in the epic nail mail from my wonderful sister in polish <3 <3 <3

So what do you think of this skittlette? What is your latest mani-experiment?

Looking forward to reading your comments!!!

Thanks for reading!!
