|Flip Flop February challenge.|
So, first day of the challenge as you see is Gradient or Skittle nails. I was going to do a gradient, but then I changed my mind and came up with a cute Skittle mani, I added a little more to it than just painting each nail a different color though. And I've added a little tutorial for how I did it for those interested too, so it'll get a little pic heavy, so everything has been added after the jump, just click the link below.
OH, and also, as a thing for the blog in the new year, I want to include more tutorials if I remember to do it as I do my nails. SO, I'll need to work on getting a good little method of doing them as I go. So let me know what you all thought of this format of the tutorial, or leave any feedback on how to improve it in the comments.
Now for real, click the link below to see the Mani and how to do it :)

First things first. This is the look. Half moon skittle owls. I'm actually pretty excited about how this came out. So cute! Now, here's the list of products used:
- Pinky finger is Sally Hansen Envy
- Ring finger is Sinful Colors Pull over
- Middle finger is wet n wild wild shine Sunny side up
- pointer finger is wet n wild wild shine Tickled Pink
- Thumb is La colors Bliss
- The details were done using an apple barrel acrylic paint set in primary colors.
- LA colors Rapid dry top coat
- Sally Hansen in invisible which is just a clear polish, any clear would work just as well.
And now that that's out of the way, lets get on with the rest of the post!
|they look dirty but taking black polish off is such a pain.|
|One coat of polish on each nail before clean up|
|after clean up|
|these three nails actually needed a third coat, but the green and purple only had two coats, how many you use is up to you and the colors/polishes you pick to use.|
|Belly added. Our owls start to take shape now.|
|Our owl has eyes! Well.. almost.|
|eyes are finished and our owl has a mouth!|
|Final look. Our owl is complete.|
