Skittles! With some nail art!

 Hey!  I did some more nail art.  I'm hoping with practice and patience I will get better.  Have you noticed how big my pictures are?  I love big pictures....though it will show the imperfections, and blurry-ness of my pics.  So we will see how long it lasts, lol!


I don't know what possessed me to do a skittles mani, but I love really like it!  I wish I hadn't ruined it with the stamping and glequins.  But that's ok, I got out of my comfort zone, so that's good.





 Here is everything I used, from L to R: Essie's Beyond Cozy and China Glaze I'm Not Lion for my thumb (not pictured), Essie's Where's My Chauffeur?, Essence That's What I Mint!, OPI Crown Me Already!, Sonia Kashuk Smoke and Mirrors (as undies for Crown Me Already!) and Urban Outfitter's Green Holo.

 Essence recently came out with a bunch of new colors and new products in their display and That's What I Mint! is one of them.  I was disappointed in this color along with another color I had gotten Hello Marshmallow! cause they both have a gorgeous shimmer running through them, but it completely disappears on the nail. The formula on both was lovely and thick, and I think that has something to do with the disappearing shimmer.  Anyone ever try thinning polishes like this?  Do you think the shimmer would be more pronounced if I did?  I would love to know what you think!
