Blue and Gold Skittle Manicure

Hi everyone! Tonight's post is a very quick one. I'm invigilating a midterm exam tomorrow, and I have to get up a bit earlier than usual. But I think this design is pretty straightforward.



When I was swatching the Models Own polishes last week, I knew that I wanted to use them in some nail art. I like blue and gold together, so I used Models Own True Blue as the base polish for some designs in gold.



For my index and pinky finger I used Stripe Rite polish in gold. The design on my index finger comes from a duvet I bought at Ikea. It's supposed to be a fish scale design but drawn rather imprecisely like a sketch. But it doesn't really fit this design. If I redid this I would make the fish scale pattern more precise and regular. On my middle finger I used Orly Luxe and some saran wrap to dab the polish on the nail. My ring finger has 2mm round studs from the Born Pretty Store.



I like this design because it was very quick, and it was nice to get some ideas out of my head. What do you think? Do you ever appreciate a design because it was quickly done?

    1. Tiffany, thank you!! Expect to see more skittle manis here, I've really been into them lately. The idea of doing the same thing on all nails just seems a bit boring now! :)

  5. Hey there! I'm 14 years old, I live in Belgium and I just started my own blog because I love nail art to! I reaaally love to check out all these other blogs, like yours. The colors you chose are really pretty and I'm very fascinated by your fish scale design. But I have a little question, how do you get such a beautiful saran wrap design? I love how it looks!

    1. Congrats on your new blog! That's very exciting. There's no secret to saran wrap nails, just use a light touch. Also, when you dab your piece of crumpled saran wrap in the gold polish, don't pick up too much - you might even blot it on a piece of paper first. And just practice. :)
