Recipe for the Skittlette:
La Couleur Couture 1977
A England Camelot
Pinkie and index: two coats of Dior Diablotine
Ring and middle: I separated the nail diagonally with striping tape painting the reversing halfs with La Couleur Couture 1977 and Dior Diablotine. I sealed it with A England The Shield Top Coat, waited a couple of minutes and taped it with two stripes in the reversed direction, then simply added one coat of A England Camelot.
I really grew fond of striping tape manis and could not resist to add some more ;-) as you can see I intentionally left my thumb plain red.
Observations and remarks: I seem to not have really firmly pressed down the striping tape on my middle and ring finger because there was just the tiniest black cloud visible. When working with striping tape it is really crucial that you press it firmly down on the nail before applying the next color to prevent the color bleeding. As you can see on my pinkie and index I learnt my lesson ;-)
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
