There are a couple of reasons I love doing Skittelettes: it is a very creative way of composing a mani if you are no nail art wizard. It also helps overcoming polish-longing during my no-buy period (I did have a glitch in this though the other week and ordered some but am back to no-buy). And it is a perfect way to cover the fact that I am still a stamping rookie. Mostly I have a particular design or technique in my mind I want to give a try and then add the framing colors.
So the other day I had an inspiration to create a Skittelette reminiscent of some sixties-seventies colors and patterns:
Pinkie: three coats of Butter London Jaffa
Ring and middle: two coats of Essie Don't Sweater It stamped with Sailor Collection Plate 03 using Rica Stamping Polish in White
Index and thumb: two coats of A England Camelot
Another thing I like about Skittelettes: exchange the colors among themselves and you get a completely different look:
Pinkie: two coats of A England Camelot
Ring and index: two coats of Butter London Jaffa again stamped with the same pattern from the Sailor Collection Plate 03
Middle and thumb: two coats of Essie Don't Sweater It
The polishes I used:
Final thoughts: isn't it amazing how simple a total change of look can be achieved with shuffling colors?
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
