The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Skittles - China Glaze For Audrey Skittle


It's another month which means another Nail Challenge Collaborative theme! This is my second month doing this challenge and I love it! This month's theme is: Skittles! And today is probably one of my most classy manis ever! I think I finally have the skittle technique down! Woot! Check that off my list! :)


Look! It's so classy even the thumb got involved and decided to make an appearance! Bringing out the big guns here but with little nubs. Tried a Gel Polish Mani, didn't last that long (four days!) but it totally wrecked my nails. Now they are all bendy and scratched/cut up. So sad. But I am still loving this mani on the nubs!

I wanted to do a really classy mani so I immediately thought of China Glaze For Audrey and I knew I had to pair it with silver. 
Starting with my thumb: OPI Glitter Off, China Glaze For Audrey (two coats), and Essence Romeo.
Index: China Glaze for Audrey (two coats), BarryM Foil Effects Silver, Emily de Molly EDM04.
Middle: China Glaze For Audrey and clear rhinestone.
Ring: OPI Glitter Off, OPI Solitaire (two coats).
Pinkie: China Glaze For Audrey (two coats), BarryM Foil Effects Silver, Vivid Lacquer VL 020.
And of course all but my ring finger have HK Girl Top Coat!

I totally love this mani! And this was my first time keep jewels on my nails for longer than the picture! They lasted (at the time of me writing this post) 3 whole days! And two of those were work days too! Didn't think they'd last! :)


Don't forget to check out the others and their day 1 Skittles!

  6. This is one of the prettiest manis I've seen! Love not only your polish selections, but the various designs on them. They all look fabulous, but 'together', if that makes sense. Just beautiful!

  7. Gah this one is definitely one of your best! Color choice is spot on amd the whole thing is so well balanced. I feel like it's so easy to overdo a skittle but you spanked it!
