Zoya Skittles

When Zoya had the "Green Friday" deal to celebrate the biggest shopping day of the year, I partook of the their offer and snagged 6 free GREEN polishes.
Of course I put 5 of them on my nails to create a green skittle manicure.

(thumb to pinky) Envy, Suvi, Irene, Midori and Tangy. (3 coats each, SV top coat)

Now let me tell you about a HORRIBLE new candy I just tried...you all know Skittles right, catch a rainbow..blah, blah., blah. I like this candy, and it allows me to indulge in my favorite (semi- OCD) habit of eating my candy in rainbow order.

(This all stems from years of loving Unicorns and Lisa Frank stickers!!)

Well skittles has a new flavor collection out in a blue bag. Its called "Fizzl'd Fruits", and they are so gross!

They fizz in your mouth, no, no, not like "young/hip" pop rocks, more like "old/indigestion" Alka-Seltzer...UUGGHH!

So I ask what made Skittles put out a product that is literally dusted with Alka-seltzer dust? I mean..really?

I tried each flavor and once the fizzle had fizzled out the skittle part was fine, but the foam action in my mouth was unpleasant. Maybe if the foam had a flavor...maybe?The fizzle was more along the lines of baking soda...just writing this makes me sick.

Needless to say once I gagged a couple down, I shared the pain with my co-workers, and their reactions were the same...GROSS!

So here's my tip for the day, RUN FROM this abomination of a candy, but RUN TO ZOYA's site and get yourself enough polish to make a skittle manicure of your own...HA!...Zoya need's to pay me for this one...HA!

Keep it sweet ladies!
Pin It!

@ Michelle- Suvi is so pretty, but Irene is my favorite of the 6. This photo was taken by my co-workers camera phone, long before I even thought about blogging let alone taking pics. of my manicures :)
