My First Skittlette! Elevation Jengish Chokusu, Nararsuk, and Sinful Alfresco!

Good morning, readers! I have a really fun mani to show you today. I recently saw that Marta from ChitChatNails did a guest post over at So Nailicious with a bit of a tutorial on how to create your own "skittlette look." The term was new to me so I really loved reading the how-to and wanted to recreate my own! Here is a little excerpt from the tutorial so you get the general idea:

"skit·tle·tte: Not quite a full skittles look, a skittlette manicure is one with at least two different accent nails.  Pick any formation you wish, but for a true skittlette at least two nails need to be the same (the others can all be different) OR two pairs of identical nails and a different nail."

You can see the full post HERE

The best part of the skittlette for me is that I can use three(or more) untried polishes and it won't take as long as doing nail art on the entire hand because I can do it on 2 nails instead. There are tons of possibilities and I grabbed three untried polishes that I felt complimented each other well and set to work.

Two of the polishes were new-to-me Elevation Polishes: Nararsuk and Jengish Chokusu. The third is Sinful Shine Alfresco. 

Thumb: three coats of Elevation Jengish Chokusu.
Index: two coats of Sinful Shine Alfresco.
Middle: gradient with Jengish Chokusu and Alfresco, topped with one coat of Elevation Nararsuk.
Ring: gradient with Jengish Chokusu and Alfresco, topped with one coat of Elevation Nararsuk.
Pinky: three coats of Elevation Jengish Chokusu.

I even tried out Marta's hand pose for the skittlette:

I love the glitter combo in Nararsuk! It is definitely unique in my large glitter collection.

What do you think of my first Skittlette? I super loved it and wore it for a few days! I can't wait to come up with more combos to try. Thanks for reading!
