Pool Day Mani: Hot Pink & Chevrons

I hope everyone has been having an enjoyable week so far. I had a pretty shitastic Tuesday yesterday, so I've got high hopes for Wednesday being better.

Story time: My dad is a real estate agent. Yesterday he needed a house opened up for a client to do a final walk through, but his (my dad's) flight wouldn't get in on time to accommodate this. So I drove 45 mins both ways to the house to unlock it for him, only to get there and find out that it was a combo lock and I didn't need to be there. The not-so-awesome agent could have just told us that and saved me an hour and a half. And then on the way home I got a flat tire. And said multiple curse words. I wasn't a happy camper, but I did feel like a BAMF because I had that tire changed in under 15 minutes and I was on my way again. So anyways, as far as I'm concerned that stupid guy owes me a new tire. 

Anyways, on to the nails. I did these for pool day with the girls on Saturday. I've had this idea in the back of my head and I knew I'd seen it before. After checking my Pinterest, I found this pin with this link, but I can't find the original picture. If you know who the original artist was, be sure to let me know so I can credit them properly. 

To accomplish this look I painted China Glaze Pool Party on my thumb, pointer, and pinkies. On my middle finger I put down a base of Sally Hansen Ivory Skull and stamped it using Konad Black with a design from plate Mash 45. My ring finger got the bling treatment with China Glaze Glistening Snow. 

What do you think of skittle looks? Are they for you?

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

    1. He does. It really just saves him a trip to come do it himself. I really loved these nails. I want to try a more muted combo.
