For all of you, who don’t know, what a Skittles manicure is. Skittles candies are similar to M&M’s or Smarties and they looks like this…

So, the Skittles manicure is called when every nail is painted in another shade. For the start, I did a light version of Skittles manicure and picked out shades from a similar color family. And because the manicure is a bit silly, so be the picture…

Skittles manicureAll polishes are from N.Y.C. I bought them, when I was in NYC. The shades are: Times Square Tangerine Creme, Pink Promenade Creme, Big Apple Red Creme, Love Me Red Creme and Fuchsia Shock Creme. I didn’t have any application issues. All are applied with two coats. The only shimmery shade is the Love Me Red Creme, which has a light red base and magenta shimmer.

My boyfriend also picked Love Me Red Creme to be my pedicure shade.

So, what do you think about the skittles manicure? Well, I quite like it.

  1. Love the skittles manicure. The polishes look a little close in color. Maybe the nails look more different in person. Your nails do look pretty.

  2. Zelo lepa, pisana manikura! :biggrin:
    Čeprav bi jo lahko imenovali tudi M&M’s ali pa Smarties manikura… :wink: :biggrin:

  3. N., to bo naslednji korak.  :wink: Zdaj imam uvajanje :silly: Sicer pa si na fotki res izgledajo bolj podobni, kot so si v resnici. npr. big apple red creme je precej temnejši od ostalih dveh. Še najbolj sta si podobna Love Me Red Creme in Pink Promenade Creme, a od tega ima LMRC ta magenta šimer, ki ga pod določenim kotom naredi čisto drugačnega. Fotka je narejena na močnem soncu in zato zgledajo vsi rdeči malo “sprani”.

    Gejba, točno tako :silly: Vendar odtenki niso zmeraj stilsko skombinirani. :biggrin:

  4. Meni pa bi bila boljša, če bil kak noht še zelen, rumen in moder, ker trije rdeči odtenki niso pretirano različni, vsaj s fotke ni videti.
