Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Sally Hansen White On
2 Coats China Glaze Pelican Gray (r. middle, thumb, l. thumb, ring)
5 Coats SinfulColors Queen of Beauty (l. ring, r. pointer)

My inspiration for this manicure actually came from a manicure I pinned on Pinterest...

c/o little-nails.blogspot.com

I pinned this over a year ago, so, it's taken me quite a while to actually attempt to recreate the look. Sadly, this blog hasn't been updated in a looooong time which is really sad, because I enjoyed a lot of the looks she created! She was one of the first blogs I found that featured short nails!

When I painted these last night, I was already wearing Sally Hansen White On. That made the application and removal of striping tape sooooo much easier. It's definitely my recommended method... :) Rather than using just gray and white polish, I opted for a silver glitter accent nail to add in a little something extra, and then I decided that I needed to do another nail on each hand to balance everything out, so I added gray on the top halves of 2 nails.

Overall, I'm really happy with how this set of skittles turned out. I'm loving the simplicity and clean lines with just a liiiittle hint of sparkle. I mean... come on, it's me. There's GOT to be sparkle! :)
