Follower Friday Request: Holo Skittles

This manicure is brought to you by the letter K for Kvacka. :) 

She wanted to see OPI DS "Shimmer" layered over other colors, so here they are sweetie.











































Thumb to Pinkie (2 coats each):
OPI "Funky Dunkey"
Orly "Red Flare"
China Glaze "Happy Go Lucky"
Art Deco "Green"
The Face Shop "Blue"

Then I added 1 coat of OPI DS "Shimmer" and wallah....















Wow! 1 coat of OPI DS "Shimmer" and it will make any color a holo...sweet!!!!















The red came out nice, I can see my self doing this again.















The green is my awesome, I mean wow, this one totally caught my eye, once I stepped outside.  the yellow was a bit of a disappointment. :(   But my favorites...of course.... were the...















Blue and the purple, how awesome did these 2 turn out...LOVE IT!!!!

wow, this really looks amazing! especially over blue and purple, too bad I can't get ds shimmer anywhere. I would totally try it over emerald green :)

Want! What a great idea, and the result is great as well! Too bad from the yellow, but the other 4 make up for that =)

Those ARE awesome! You should consider working some of these pics into the header of your pages...it matches your candy theme perfectly!

Love this! I used to do rainbow-skittle nails in high school but the holo really makes them pop!

KarenD said...

What a fun mani! I once did rainbow skittles with MAAH layered over the top but this is better.

Awesome! I loved all the colors with AND without the shimmer. Wouls you used them this way, one nail of each color? I´m going to try it!

I lovelovelove this mani, it is so cute! DS Shimmer is such an amazing polish! I had to track down a second bottle because I felt I NEEDED to have a backup.

cathryn said...

tell me you didnt use the art deco brush to paint your whole nail, LOL.

that is a type of dedicated patience i DONT have!

Silke said...

Absolutely love it! Excellent idea for people like me who can't decide what to wear;)

(oh, it's embarrasing, I was wondering all the time what Skittles mean, translator couldn't find it and after thinking about it (it took hours;)suddenly I remembered, it's a candy brand!!!!)

Kvacka said...

OMG, this is the coolest thing ever!! =))
Thank you so much, this looks GORGEOUS!!!
Now I really want this polish even more badly! ;D
I love the colors and this manicure is so bright and fun! And HOLO!!! =))

Lovely! I didn't realize DS Shimmer can be layered like that. I thought it was more opaque.

Zara said...

Okay, now I have to have DS Shimmer!
