MSMD Monday: Skittle Nail Art


I'm excited about today's MSMD because it's something I've wanted to try for a while, skittle nail art. One of the queens of this technique is Sammy of The Nailasaurus, in my opinion, so I'm using one of hers for my basic inspiration. You can see it by clicking here.

I've been having a yen to pair a moss green with a pretty purple in a manicure, and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity, so here's what I did:

Skittle mani!

Skittle mani in the shade

Skittle mani--direct sun

So here's what I did. All fingers have Revlon Muse as the base color:

Index finger: One thick coat of Different Demension That's so Fetch (Indie Alert!)

Middle finger: gradient done with Zoya Tru, topped with Ulta Purple Xing

Ring Finger: Stamped with Zoya True using LeaLac plate LLC-A (I will review this plate shortly), centers dotted with Ulta Purple Xing

Pinkie finger: purple gleequins, with one coat of gelous on top, and a coat of Seche Vite

I really love the way this came out! This type of manicure is so fun, with something different going on with each nail, but it still looks clean and pulled together. I also really love how That's So Fetch looks over Muse--the color combination is amazing. :)

I hope you saw something here you like! Please check out all of the other MSMD manicures, linked below. :)



  1. The colour combination is very pretty - and I like how all the designs are different yet go together well))

  2. I am rather in love with the art on the middle and ring fingers.

  3. These are such cute combinations! I loooove that indie polish on your index finger!

    1. Thank you! Isn't that polish great? It's even prettier IRL, believe it or not. :)

  4. Love your ringfinger, its so pretty!

    1. I love that image. It's so fun and retro '60s. :)

  5. I love it, this is a fabulous mani!

    1. Thank you so much, I still have it on, and will be wearing it tomorrow, so you know I love it, lol!


Make my day--leave me a comment!
