Digit-al Dozen: Abstract Festive Skittles!

Today I've got some funky abstract festively-colored skittles for you! Sometimes I like just doing whatever pops into my head as I go along, so here's a great example of that.

Don't they sort of remind you of ugly Christmas sweaters?! I hand placed the glitters on my middle nail and the glitter on my pinkie is a holiday top coat I handmixed. The only caveat about using red and green together is that they are complimentary colors, and layered they make brown. I used gold in these skittles because I think of gold more frequently paired with red and green - like in poinsettias and the tops of ornaments. What colors make you think of the holidays?

Don't forget to check out the other nails for today! All the newbies are putting me to shame so far this week


  1. Love these! Bah! I have no patience for hand placing glitters, but yours look great! :)
