The Digit-al Dozen Does Skittles: Accidental Dayglow Skittles + Studs

I really loved the colors of today's nail art, even if my camera just couldn't comprehend them! For the last day of skittle week I did some random geometric freehand nails inspired by my guinea pigs' cage liner (yep, they're really styling in their neon orange + pink fleece) then some simple blue studs to complement the orange. Ch-ch-check it out!

 The two main polishes for these skittles are OPI Kiss Me on my Tulips (loveeee the pro-wide brush on this hot pink), and Deborah Lippmann Lara's Theme (surprise! just kidding! I use this polish like every single time!). The random lines were done with a medium striper brush, but they're a little wider than I wish they were.

To add some spice to my first two nails that were 'boring' (i.e. can't leave a good bright orange creme alone), I added some rectangular metallic blue bar studs and tried to do some fun small details with China Glaze First Mate.

Overall, I definitely love the linear pinkie and ring finger and will probably do something like that again. I love this vibrant mix of colors - so bright and awesome together - although clearly my camera gets a little confused!!

Check out the other nail arts for the last day of Skittles Week below!

TGIF! I hope you have a wonderful weekend


  1. Wow interesting combo! Love where you got the inspiration!

  2. This is SO cool. The combos you come up with are so inventive!

  3. My camera freaks out when I do pink with another color too! These look great either way though! :)
