Wedding Skittle Manicure

Hello everyone!

By the time you're reading this I will be munchin' on a pizza and watching Germany vs. USA during the soccer world cup. Are you following the world cup? I am not a huge soccer fan, but I love the social gatherings that come with these events.
On the last weekend of May two friends got married. For this special event I wanted to create some special nails that additionally went well with my dress (a deep burgundy 50's style dress with black polka dots). So red was a must and so were roses. I ended up with these red, black and gold skittle nails.

Essie Fishnet Stockings Licorice

Black red skittle nails

The red is Essie - Fishnet Stockings, one of my favorite red polishes of all time. The black is Essie - Licorice. The rose pattern is from MoYou London Princess plate 12. For stamping on my thumb I used Essie - Penny Talk which works like a charm for nail designs like this. The stamping on my ring finger was done with the black Essence stamping polish. On my middle finger I wanted to do a gold glitter gradient. Going through my stash I realized I don't have a gold glitter polish, so I went with Ninja Polish - Color Changing Garnet. This multichrome polish changes from gold to red to green, depending on the angle.
All in all I am really happy with how this turned out, even though this is not your typical delicate wedding nail design, but these nails are so me :)

Thanks for reading and go team Germany ;P



  1. Danke dir! Das rot passte zwar nicht 100% zu dem von meinem Kleid, aber wir wollen mal nicht allzu perfektionistisch sein ;)

  2. Thanks a lot, I am really glad the stamping came out good (because I am not very skilled at it).

  3. Aweee... Thank you so much *major fangirl moment* :D
