Digit-al Dozen; Skittles, Day 5


Today is the last day of the Digit-al Dozen Skittles challenge for this month. The ladies in the group have simply outdid themselves this week....the mani's have been fantastic....so creative and we all have come up with such different takes on the theme.......well, I think that happens every challenge! This my Day 5 mani.


Started with a base coat of skittles, starting at thumb, used Duri Taming of the Shrew, L'Oreal Hyde Park, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, NYX White, and Essie Avenue Maintain, all two coats, topped with SV.


Stamped using Fun charcoal stamping polish using FUN 7.



I had made a stamper decal and filled it in with a combination of Konad special polishes and acrylic paints.



After a layer of clear, placed the stamper decal on my finger.



Um, Houston, we have a problem!  I tried to use acetone to remove the overage on the stamping decal but it wasn't very successful, so I ended up trimming the decal down with scissors as best I could around the shape of my nail.  This was a little tricky considering the decal was still on my nail, but eventually, I got it to work, I suppose!  After touching up the decal a bit with some polish (see the white at the bottom in the pix above?  I had a huge, honking decal and could have placed it down further on the nail to avoid this, but of course, that's not where I fit it on my nail, so filled in a little using polishes as can be seen below), topped with SV to finish.




Here's the other ladies Day 5 skittle mani's!





Thanks for looking!
