The Digit-al Dozen Does Skittles: Orange & Green Skittle set inspired by Pretty & Polished Glowstick

(Press Sample)

Today's skittles are inspired by one of the Pretty & Polished Halloween polishes I showed you yesterday, the green glow in the dark polish named Glowstick. I love how cheery and cute Glowstick is because it's great for Halloween (yay! glow!) but it's also great for autumn in general (and spring, because it's green, and summer because it's neon...). Basically I am in love and felt like it deserved some fun nail art to go with it, loosely inspired by pumpkins! Take a look!

I balanced out the fun and vibrant shades of green and orange with some earthy brown; this is meant to be more a light-hearted autumn mani vs. a Halloween one (hence why I didn't pick black). This is not something I would normally think to do, but I like it a lot and it's definitely giving me that happy pumpkin patch + apple cider + cardigan wearing vibe I was hoping for.

As usual this week, I won't go into super detail about each nail but I am more than happy to chat about a particular technique if you're curious about what I did (let me know in the comments, or tweet me @manicurity)!! My main polishes for this were Deborah Lippmann Lara's Theme (orange), Orly Fresh (bright green), and China Glaze Mahogany Magic (brown). I really like all of my nails pretty equally in this this skittle, so no playing favorites today :p Altho I do like the mini french tip on my Glowstick nail; I think that really ties it allllll together!

Don't forget to check out the other skittle nails for today, the Digit-al Dozen ladies have been killing it this week!
