ridiculous skittles!

As you can probably tell, this is a skittles mani post!
They're ridiculous. Ridiculously cute.
Let's just get to the pictures.

Ahhhhhh so much cute at once!
(Excuse the yellow stain on my left palm - it's ink from work!)

These nails are on their third day now, which is a lot for me lately.

Hello Kittyyyyyyyy.
And glitterrrr.
And rhinestones.
And pretty colors.

And a cupcake! Don't these nails have almost everything?! Hahaha.

I know it's a bit odd where my thumb designs go in different directions, but they wouldn't work the other way around! It's all about nail shape.

So I love these a whooooole lot.

Now I will list what I used.

The colors used are:
China Glaze - Spontaneous (purple)
China Glaze - Rich and Famous (pink)
China Glaze - For Audrey (blue)
Nicole by OPI - One Less Lonely Glitter (over Spontaneous)
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Whirlwind White (for kitty and cupcake, also mixed with Spontaneous on cupcake)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Mellow Yellow (kitty's nose!)

The middle fingers are a fishtail pattern I recently saw all over tumblr. It is sooooo cute but it takes a while to do because of drying time.

I used quite a few wheels of stones for the accessories, there are 3mm stones, 1.5mm stones, triangular ones from a mixed wheel, and a small pearl from a pearl wheel.

HK's bow came from a wheel of bows, hearts, pearls, and 3d flowers. The bow originally had tails on it but I cut them off with tiny scissors to make it more HK appropriate.

The bullion beads on the cupcake came from a wheel of bullion beads from Born Pretty. I would not recommend buying them in the wheel. The beads are just too small to be in the wheel, and they do not stay inside it, and it makes a big mess. The first wheel they sent me was terrible and they replaced it, and it isn't as bad, but still nearly impossible to work with.
They also sell these beads in 12 individual pots - which is what you should get if you want these. But they didn't have those on ebay so I bought the wheel.
Also, they are all different sizes and it would be hard to do intricate designs with them because of that. But as sprinkles, they're fine.

What's the verdict? Cute or ridiculous? Or ridiculously cute?

  4. I love these. And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks of doing random "skittles" stuff like this. I've had days where every nail is different and felt rather like a spaz. haha
