Feathered Skittlette

Hi everyone!  Since yesterday was the first day of spring, I really felt like having a little bit of random fun!  Here's what I ended up with ..


I started off with two coats of Sally Hansen Coral Reef, a bright coral creme, on my index and pinkie fingers, and three coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, a white creme, on my middle and ring fingers.


Next, I applied one coat of SV to my middle finger and placed a small feather over my nail.  Once smoothed down, I added another coat of SV, then trimmed the feather down and filed it for a smooth tip that was flush with my nail edge.


For a little touch of sparkle, I added two coats of China Glaze Nova, a clear coat with mini and micro silver holographic glitters.  I followed with one coat of SV.


Finally, I added a small silver stud to the top of my index and ring fingers.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I am super happy with the final result!  It's such a fun look to wear!!


I really hope you enjoyed today's mani as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Happy Painting!




Colors: Sally Hansen Coral Reef, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, China Glaze Nova

  3. So cute. I love that coral color. I actually had it in my hand at the store earlier and put it down thinking I could get it cheaper at another store. And then the other store didn't even carry that color! I had forgotten and was over it until I saw this mani and now I really want to go back and get this polish. I was actually looking for a stray bottle of Sally Hansen Shrimply Devine and found this little beauty and stupid me, I put it back on the shelf. But yeah, your mani is really cute and fun!
