Colorful Explosions

Hi all! Today I have a super fun mani to show you guys! I wanted to try nailside's Explosion mani again since last time I tried I sort of failed. I wanted to do something colorful so I did skittles nails with a sort of gradient.


If you haven't already, check out Jane's tutorial. She can explain it much better than I can!!
Here are the colors I used... take a deep breath...

(from base to tips)
Pinky: Sally Hansen Pink Blink, Sally Hansen I Pink I Can, OPI Let Me Entertain You
Ring: China Glaze Refresh-Mint, Zoya Tangy, Orly Here Comes Trouble
Middle: Essie Nice is Nice, Sinful Verbena, Milani Purple Gleam
Pointer: China Glaze For Audrey, Sally Hansen Fairy Teal, Milani Blue Flash

Enlarge to see sparkley goodness


*pant pant* That's all of em! What do you think? I think this is so fun and colorful and sparkley but I don't think I'd ever be able to get it to look the same on my other hand :( It was definitely time consuming, but worth it!


Have a lovely day!
