12 MoC: Christmas Skittles 2.0

Last time, I showed you how to mix it up with non-traditional colors for your nails. If you're looking for a more traditional festive and fun manicure, these skittles might be just the thing to try!

This isn't the first time I've done Christmas Skittles, but I do like this version better than the one I did last year. I think because of the variation in colors and finishes. Amazonian is a dark evergreen with small green sparkles that is just perfect for Holiday nail art. (Especially Christmas Trees!) Queen of Beauty and Champagne Siren are silver and gold glitters respectively. I love how they looked mixed together. It's seriously thee perfect blend of gold and silver, and it never gets old! Devious is a bright red creme with a slightly jelly finish. I definitely had some VNL because of that. Exotic Green is a grass green jelly polish that I've been lemming for quite a while. Soooo glad I picked it up. I really like the shade of green AND the finish! Then, there's Ravishing, Dahling and Twinkle Lights...

Originally, I had planned to simply put a coat of Twinkle Lights over Ravishing, Dahling. But, because Twinkle Lights is so densely packed with glitter, that didn't really work. So what did I do? Paint on another coat, of course, which only made things worse, and I thought I'd have to start over! Thankfully, I decided to try to go over the glitter with another coat of Ravishing, Dahling, instead! That ended up making the gorgeous darker red jelly glitter sandwich you see above!

What do you think of Christmas Skittles 2.0?
