Braided Skittle Manicures

These are my to recent manicures. This was my first attempt on braided nail art. I had to choose three one-coaters and it was tough to find three that would somehow match. This was the best of my efforts and I quite like the colour scheme.

I like the technique, but I was always worried that there will be lots of bubbles… and guess what… this is bubble mayhem! And I’m out of Essie GTG :-/ so nothing much I can do about them. Anyhow… I love the overall look (from far far away…)

This pink-red-black skittle / ombre mani was originally intended for trying out an interesting layering polish from Gabriela Salvete, so I tried it out over various colos to see how it looked. Then I did another braid with the base colours, just to practice and I liked the result quite a lot 😉

The Gabriela Salvete is bright red jelly with midsized pinkish flecks and I love how it looks over the black.
