Nails ~ skittles tips

With the Summer ending, so do the neon manis.


I don't think I reach for neons that often. They're good in theory, but sometimes they're tricky to apply.


When done right, they really brighten up my day.


I got the 'inspo' for this mani when browsing through Instagram's suggested posts. An account called Nailfye posted a skittles mani with neon and pastel skittles only on the tips, sort of a french mani, and I thought, maybe I can recreate this with holos.


I added my own twist, using a gap in between the colors, and filling it with some iridescent shimmer. To me, this one looks better in pictures than IRL.


Layering Order:
Kokoist Mega Stick Base Coat  Gel (I cure it for 90 sec. with Kokoist Le Blanc in low heat)
Kokoist Excel Builder Gel (I cure it for 30 sec. with Kokoist Le Blanc)
Essie Smooth-E Base Coat
2 coats L'apogee Ametista for the gap
Color Club Cosmic Fate and Dare To Wear Coral Carnation (pinky)
Color Club Eternal Beauty and NCLA Pick Me Up at Melrose Place (ring)
Color Club Kismet and Dare To Wear Honeysuckle (middle)
Color Club Blue Heaven and Canmake 53 (index)
Guerlain Topcoat

Where to buy in the US:
The Dare to Wear neons have been discontinued. Color Club Holos are still available on their website.
