Saturday Skittlette - inspired by a floor mosaic

It is my aim to post every Saturday a Skittlette or a Skittletini. For this week I was inspired by an oriental floor mosaic I found on Pinterest - in case you are interested on my Pinterest Pin Walls you can find me as mausishuffle - in case you have some time to go and look, I am sure you will be able to identify the photo that triggered the idea for this mani on my Pin Wall "Simply Beautiful".


the above picture shows my Skittlette indoors, the below photo outside 



Cast of polishes:
Pinkie: China Glaze I'm Not Lion
Ring: Opi Skull & Glossbones with a nail tattoo from Big Ruby Henna set
Middle: Opi Berlin There Done That, I sponged A England And the Moon Beams and China Glaze I'm Not Lion
Index and thumb: A England Galahad, stamped with Maybelline Forever Strong No 820 using a pattern from DRK-B plate

I loved this skittlette - what about you?

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
Christine

  1. Salut Christine, What a gorgeous combination of colours! a England galahad looks so perfect! And I also stamp with the MAybelline 820, it's great for stamping imo.

    1. Sali Nati, thank you so much love!!! Now guess why I use Maybelline 820 for stamping - remember I asked you once what you use for stamping since your manis always turn out so neat and beautiful? Guess who dashed to the next Coop the day when you replied? - Oui, MOI ;-)!!! It is PARFAIT for stamping - thank you for the wonderful advice xxx!!! My name on Instagram and Pinterest is mausishuffle for both sites. I have unsuccessfully tried to add the link to the Blog for the last hour or so and gave up for the moment - need to ask for advice :-S. I will search you on Pinterest now - take care and tons of bisous!!!

    1. Thank you Yun - I was just a tad shocked when I realized that each finger looked different, but then this mosaic was so intricate and held all these wonderful colors, then there were those beautiful oriental lamps - see, you got me babbling here all over it - LOL - Christine

    1. Hi Liz, welcome to my Blog - I just checked your Blog (just to re-check, your name most certainly was familiar to me already) - YOU are behind the wonderful new Collaboration shade from Picture Polish named Paradise!!! It is GORGEOUS!!! It was already sold-out when I wanted to add it to my shopping cart but I am counting on re-stock ;-)!!! And thank you so much for your lovely comment, this is such a huge compliment coming from you :-)
