Digit-al Dozen; Skittles, Day 3

Here's Day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen skittle mani's; this time I decided to have some fun with textured polishes!

Started with a base of skittles; polish used on the thumb is OPI Kiss Me at Midnight, middle finger is Milani Yellow Mark, and pinky is China Glaze Of Coarse, all two coats, no topcoat.  For the index and ring finger, I didn't have textured polish in the colours I was looking for.  I remembered reading somewhere in the blogesphere (I can't remember which blog now, but will gladly give credit if I come across it again; I seem to think it's a fellow Digit-al Dozen lady.  **Edited Oct 23 2013; the blog was Bee Polished; the post is here if you want to check it out!) about using a textured polish and then topping it with a regular polish, so this is what I did for these two fingers.  I used two coats of OPI Solitaire on each finger, then did a coat of Duri Taming of the Shrew on the index finger and then Essie Navigate Her on the ring then waited for all to dry. 

Stamped using black Konad special polish using FUN 11. Unfortunately, the Elmo finger wrinkled a little because it wasn't dry enough, but I just touched it up a bit with more red polish.

Added a little character to their faces using a dotting tool using red, white and black Konad special polishes.

That's it!  I didn't topcoat this mani as I wanted the roughness of the texture polishes.

Here's the other ladies Day 3 mani's!

Thanks for looking!
