New31DC: Day 7

Hello! Today's prompt calls for ombre or skittle nails! My original plan was to do ombre. I started out with China Glaze For Audrey and mixed in varying amounts of black and white in order to make an ombre effect. The effect turned out to be too subtle, and my camera would hardly even pick up the color difference. I removed that, and instead did my favorite type of skittle manicure.
I love doing at least one nail with flowers and then different designs on the other fingers using the same colors. I'm very happy with how this one turned out, and I'm glad I didn't stick with my miserable ombre.
The grey is Xtreme Wear Wet Cement, and the light purple is Lacey Lilac. The accents on the flower are China Glaze Pucci-Licious, and the leaves are China Glaze Starboard.
Just for fun, here's my sad ombre. I tried to add glitter to improve it, I don't think it worked.


  1. I'm so glad you did this beautiful skittle mani because I am absolutely in love with it!
