Some purple, glitter and cloud nails

Hi everyone :) Hmm, throw in some gold too, while you're at it. I decided against adding that to the already long title :P

I was going through a purple phase awhile back and this skittle was something I came up with while trying to make a plain old crème polish look more interesting. For my index and pinky, I started with two coats of OPI Do you lilac it? before layering a coat of Essence Make it golden. For my middle nail, I applied two coats of Hello Kitty Golden girl and used Australis Blackmail and Do you lilac it? to create the cloud nail art. Finally, on my ring nail and thumb, I applied two coats of Blackmail and layered Savvy by DB purple viking over it.

I absolutely loved the way this manicure turned out and how well this tied together. And just how beautiful does purple viking look layered over a black base! :D

Skittling is one of my favourite nail art techniques - it's so simple but can create such a wonderful effect.

Thank you for reading.
