I Tried a Skittle…

This is my attempt at a skittle mani.  I may have used too many colors, but I think it turned out ok.  I’m not completely sold on the color combo, but it is definitely something a little different for me.  Also – believe it or not – this is my first leopard print!  I can’t believe I’ve never done one before.


I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, OPI Black Onyx, OPI Jade is the New Black, China Glaze Fade into Hue, and Sephora by OPI Hippo to be Square.


I think I need a little more practice with skittles – and maybe to try one with two or three colors instead of five – but this isn’t bad for my first shot.  I do think the leopard print turned out surprisingly well – I wasn’t expecting my first try to actually resemble leopard spots.  What do you think?

  1. Love this! Skittle manicures have always made me nervous because I can never come up with different patterns that work cohesively.

    • Thank you! Me too, but I learned that I really like the look of graphic patterns combined with one animal or floral print – that usually works for me as long as the colors are the same.

  3. I love this design so much! I do nail art too but the one thing that gets me is free-hand leopard print! The fact that this is your first attempt – crazy! Love the colours for the leopard-print one too, would never have thought of putting them together! 🙂
