You ask me any given day about the color combination of teal/turquoise and magenta/pink and I turn all green and start doing ugly noises and go nooooooo wayyyyyyyyyy this is too eighties, early nineties. You fill these colors in nail polish bottles and my brain starts spinning of how to throw them together - there, finally something seemed to have stuck somewhere from those decades inside me, eh?
For the below Skittelette I choose a more peach than pink cream to frame my else turqoise/teal choices. As of late and with the longer days I get round to practise basic nailart techniques and grandients would be so cool - if I could ever muster them... So the other day, I was doing gradients and yes, I am showing mercy and save you from the view of if, and with all tolerance, understanding and justifying only one nail per hand made it to my standard of acceptable. Let's put a veil of ignorance over the fail of the others and rather look at what I teamed up with my lone, single gradient per hand:
Pinkie and index: two coats of Picture Polish Marine
Ring: two coats of Elevation Polish Pa'ako
Middle: Picture Polish Marine and Picture Polish Honey Dew sponged over white
The turquoise colored stud I placed on my ring lifted the mani from a tad bland to more complete if you know what I mean?
Final thoughts: I think those Skittelettes are really the best way to conceal my inability to produce 10 similar looking designs - LOL! My trick is that I paint 2-3 nails per hand with a certain technique keeping only the one or twos I like best and compose the Skittelette around it.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
