Hiding in Skittles - Artsy Wednesday

 
I guess it’s a sign that you are old, when you have to Google the word Skittles to learn what it is… :)
They are this week’s challenge in Artsy Wednesday, and I realized that they would fit right in to my “Hiding in X” series. I tried to find the polishes closest to the photos of Skittles that I found on the internet, and the green and the orange could have been closer, but I guess that means I do not have enough polishes – right???
I started out with painting my nails white with OPI Alpine snow, and then I dotted the Skittles with China Glaze: Turned Up Turquise (greenish) + Sunshine Pop (yellow) + Hey Sailor (red), Orly Orange Punch and Absolute Nails Precious. Finally I top coated.
It was a fun and bright mani to wear on a rainy day…
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle Lab Muffin,  Alanna Pretty Purple Polish, Holly Hooked, Tif Polished Genious, Lyndsey Nails by Ms. Lizard, Sofie Swååfie, Catrine Unnakednails, Melanie Nail & Polish, Jessica Beauty Gnome

Det er nok et tegn på, at man er gammel, når man er nødt til at Google ordet Skittles for at finde ud af hvad det er :) 
De er denne uges udfordring i Artsy Wednesday, og jeg tænkte hurtigt at de ville passe perfekt ind i min ”Hiding in x” camouflage serie. Jeg prøvede at finde de lakker, der var tættest på de billeder jeg havde fundet af Skittles, men den grønne og den orange kunne havde været bedre, men det er jo bare et tegn på, at jeg har for få neglelakker, ikke…?
Jeg startede med et lag OPI Alpine snow, og derefter dottede jeg Skittles med China Glaze: Turned Up Turquise (greenish) + Sunshine Pop (yellow) + Hey Sailor (red), Orly Orange Punch og Absolute Nails Precious. Til sidst lagde jeg toplak!
Det var et sjovt og farverigt design, som jeg lavede en grå og regnfuld dag…

  5. Det ser rigtig festligt og sommerligt ud. Tror jeg skal kaste mig ud i dette look en dag.
    Hvordan dækker OPI Alpine Snow? Jeg mangler nemlig en rigtig god, hvid neglelak, uden noget shimmer eller andet. Kunne Alpine Snow efter din meing være et bud på dette?

    1. Tusind tak Louise :) Alpine Snow er en utroligt dejlig HVID hvid, der er dækker superfint - her brugte jeg kun et lag, men hvis den bliver mere synlig bruger jeg som regel to - det er helt klart "min" HVIDE hvide farve!

  26. This manicure is so cheerful and surely looks yummy! :-)

    The thing that you wrote to Nail Crazy made me smile...You know, something like 10 years ago when I lived with my parents, once my father made some sound like he feels the pain, so I asked "Where do you feel the pain, what is the problem?" and he answered "My birth certificate is the problem!"

    Well, our birth certificates tell the truth about our age, but I think there are many many ways and many many things to do to continue feeling young in our heads, in this way we are happier and we appear happier and younger also to the others! :-)
    Playing with nail polishes and nail art is one of these ways that makes us feel better, happier and younger! :-)

    And, yes, I think you need some more nail polishes! Well, what answer did you expect from the "nail-polish-holic" like me? I can only tell you that you need more and more... I think I also dreamed about nail polishes the other night... Does it mean my illness is getting worse? :-)))

    1. LOL, thank you for telling me this lovely story, Raggio di Luna, your father is wise LOL
      Nail polish has for sure helped me through the last surgeries in neck and shoulders - have brought so much joy and happiness - especially after I started the blog and got so many virtual friends - I appreciate so much, that it's hard to describe!

      Yes I'm afraid your illness is getting worse, much worse - you need to send all your polishes to me, never open any blog or google nail art or polish ever again ;)
      Nahh, just kidding, I would miss you too much LOL
