12 MoC: Christmas Skittles

by - 12/17/2013

Nothing says Merry Christmas like festive skittles, right? Right! Let's get festive, festive, fes-tive...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Pointsettia (r. thumb, l. pinky)
3 Coats China Glaze Glittering Garland (r. pointer, l. ring)
3 Coats China Glaze Ravishing Dahling (r&l middle)
5 Coats China Glaze Twinkle Lights (r. ring, l. pointer)
3 Coats China Glaze Holly-Day (r. pinky, l. thumb)
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I wore this manicure for quite a while. It was at least 4 days, possibly 5. (That's a long time for me.) I didn't set out with the idea of using all China Glaze polishes... it just happened to work out that way! And if you're humming, oneofthesethingsisnotliketheother... dingdingding! You are correct!!! Ravishing Dahling is the only polish that wasn't part of the Holiday 2011 "Let it Snow" Collection.

I really like the way this turned out, and it was fun to wear, too. So festive! Although, I would probably replace Holly-Day with a lighter green. I wasn't expecting it to be so close to the shade of green in Glittering Garland. Oh, well. Can't win 'em all, right?

I don't wear skittle manicures that often, but the concept really works when it comes to Christmas nails. I might do another one for this series... maybe something more winterish/wintery (take your pick) next time. I'm thinking silvers, blues, possibly white, if it decides to cooperate... White polish and I have NAWT been getting along lately. I'm in search of a non-streaky, self-leveling one. Any recommendations? Please and thanks if you do!

What colors would you use in a Christmas Skittle mani?
