Salt 'n Pepper Skittles

Hello friends! Today I have a fun skittles mani to share with you. Since I pretty much have polish coming out of my ears I have a lot of untrieds sitting around - so lately I have been doing skittle manis a bunch so that I can play with multiple polishes at a time. I did that recently with several polishes from Enchanted Polish. I started out with Horizontal Running, a bubblegum pink creme holo, Water for Unicorns, a bright sky blue creme holo, and Mercy, a dusty purple creme holo. To tie it all together I topped it all off with Seven Nation Army, a mix of white and black microglitter in a sheer holo shimmery base. Take a look!

On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off base coat
2 coats each Enchanted Polish Horizontal Running/Mercy/Water for Unicorns
1 coat Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army
1 coat KB Shimmer Clearly On Top

I am really glad I started doing more skittles lately; aside from getting a chance to use more of my polishes I love how it gives me more of an opportunity to be creative with my nails than just one color, even when I don't have time to do actual legit nail art. I used to not be a fan of skittles because I thought they typically didn't look very put together, but I think the key to that is using polishes with the same kind of finish (in this case, creme holos). Of course putting the same effect topcoat over everything helps pull it together also (and has the bonus of getting to use even more polish all in one go - win win!)

You can find Enchanted Polish at their website, Mei Mei's Signatures, Nail Polish Canada, and Pshiiit Boutique and be sure to check out their Facebook~

Have an enchanting day! ♥
