NOTD: Wild Skittles

4 years ago

I have been feeling a bit uninspired with my manicures recently (which is probably why you`ve been seeing mostly solid colored manicures/reviews, rather than nail art/designs). I decided I would try to force myself out of this slump by going with something loud and obnoxious. I think it worked. For this skittle manicure I used 5 shimmery/foil finish polishes. I actually had a lot of Zoya`s dumped out on the floor and was having a hard time selecting five. Heck, I should have just done 10: one different color for each nail. However, I chose Bijou, Myrta, Apple, Charla, and Dannii. I continued the pattern of color straight from my left hand to the right. So, my left hand (from pink to thumb) is Bijou, Myrta, Apple, Charla, Dannii. Then the pink restarts on the right hand at the thumb and works its way across and ends with Dannii on the pinky finger. I tried to get a decent photo of both hands together, but I don`t have a tripod and every time I tried to prop my camera the photos were goofy looking. As if shimmering multi-colored finger nails weren`t enough, I decided to then stripe on some zebra-esque patterns onto them. Oh yes, and then decided to make them white AND black (where normally I`d have chosen one or the other.... come on, guys, I was REALLY trying to force myself out of my slump). I used two striping polishes from Sinful Colors. I like the Art Deco ones, too, but find that the brushes on the Sinful Colors are thinner and don`t gloop up as easily. My striping wasn`t perfect but the macro shots really emphasize any and all smudges and unclean edges of the markings. In person they look much more precise. The top coat also smeared some of the colors into one another, but over all I`m really happy with this manicure. It gives an upbeat feel with the bright colors and fun pattern. Oh, and don`t mind the oddball shape/length of my nails right now. One finger got caught and snapped when I was doing house cleaning (thumb) and another broke at a corner. So, my thumb is a severe nubbin and the others are kind of rounded off. I think they`re all getting chopped down this weekend though so they`ll be uniform and more squared. Zoya`s is still going on.
