My Sister's Nails: A Simple Spring Skittlette

Hi everyone! First of all, thank you so much for all the kind words regarding my blogging milestone yesterday. I really enjoyed reading all your comments, both your responses to the blog post and the responses left in the Rafflecopter. And thank you everyone who has participated in the contest so far!

I have another instalment of my sister's nails. If you missed the last post you can see it here. I'm thinking that this will be a regular series, that is, as long as my sister wants to come over and have me do her nails! I was only able to get iPhone photos, and it was starting to get dark, so they are not as clear as I would like. But I enjoy showing you photos of nails I've done on someone else. And it's a nice change of pace. :)

Since neither of us were up for a marathon manicure session, we decided on a simple skittle manicure with a lighter spring palette. It was fun to discuss ideas with her and pull out polishes to see what she liked, didn't like, etc.

For this design, I used OPI My Vampire is Buff on all nails except the accent nails. For that I used Zoya NYX (from the Pixie Dust collection). The glitter is Lumina Lacquer Anything, and the freehand painting was done with OPI Suzi's Hungary Again! and You're Such a BudaPest.

I love how simple and fun this was, and I can't get enough of mix and match nails! :)

What do you think? Hope you don't mind the change of blog format every now and then!

  1. Hi Meghan, what a great Skittelette!!! Those are my favs to look at and to do!!! Beautiful freehand stripes and hearts and wonderful color combination. I think the pictures are great and taking photos of someone elses hands gives so many more new angles - I love it <3

    1. Thanks so much Christine! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I agree regarding taking pictures of someone else, it's nice to show a full mani, but I can't photograph both my hands. I know others do it, but they must have a good set up with a tripod. :/

  2. Beautiful mani, and the colours are great together!
    I haven't tried a skittle manicure yet, but it's on my list. There are so many things on my list!

    1. Thanks Chantal, and you must do a skittle/mix n' match mani, they are the best kind. No need to decide what polish or technique you want to use, haha! ;)

  4. I love mani time with my sister. :) She goes to college about an hour away & only comes home to work on the weekends, so she doesn't always have time, but when she does we enjoy sharing ideas & hanging out too. :)

    1. It's something that my sister and I just started doing, but I love hanging out with her even more than getting the practice in. It's great that you and your sister can do that together as well. :) And thank you for all the lovely comments on my blog.
