Orly floral pastel skittles manicure
Today's manicure is inspired by a pedicure design I saw in Nail Max Collections magazine Vol. 7 which I picked up in HK late last year. As soon as I saw the design I knew it would be the perfect manicure to try out polishes from the Orly Sweet collection I recently received in swaps!
Isn't it cute?!! And perfect for Summer too. Too bad Sydney is having some very wet weather at the moment! I used 2 coats of Orly Gumdrop for thumbs, 2 coats of Cotton Candy for index fingers, 3 coats of Lemonade for middle fingers, 2 coats of Lollipop for ring fingers and 2 coats of Snowcone on pinkies.
I then applied 1 coat of Essence Space Queen which I received in my Xmas package from Christina for a glittery finish. I finished off with some floral Pa nail stickers on my thumbs as I don't use acrylics and added some silver beads which you can just see. Topped it all off with a coat of Color Club Vivid Intensifying top coat for a glossy finish.
I seem to be doing a lot of skittles manis at the moment! I hope you don't mind but it's Summer here Down Under so I thought it would be fun =) I want to scan my nail mags but I've got such a huge backlog of posts and things I need to do, including organising and photographing items for my blog shop! Hopefully I'll have some scans up soon for you all. I'm trying to coerce my sis into scanning the mags for me haha.
Thanks for looking!
