Skittlettes Contest Entry...
Hey all! I participated in Chit Chat Nails Skittlette Contest not too long ago and thought I would share my mani here. I plan to do more of these types of mani's because I loved it! I was number 31. I did not win though :( I was so nervous to submit a mani but I want the Gals Fairy stamping plate set and have not convinced myself why I should buy MORE stamping plates. I have so many already. Anyway doing the contest prompted me to want to start my own blog so here is this miraculous design that gave me the courage.
This is called a skittlette mani. On Chit Chat Nails page this is how she defines a "skittlette" mani: "Skitt * lette : a manicure consisting of two, or three, different accent nails on each hand." For my mani I used China Glaze Pool Party (Neon Pink) as a base, China Glaze Recycle (pale grey), and Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Whirlwind White. I used the newer Cheeky plates for the stamping and a dotting tool for the dots. I dotted with Pool Party and Recycle using different size dotting tools. The stamping is done with Mash black stamping polish. I dislike Konad black. It stains so bad on my skin and is so hard to clean up. :( Pretty cute I think. What do you guys think??
