Skittlette Mani with Tutorials on the Accent Nails

 Hi guys. Happy Monday. How was your weekend ?

Today I am sharing another fun nail look with the polishes I mentioned HERE last week. I have a full review on the two colours in the link. Along with the 2 gorgeous polishes, NailCandi send me some Chevron tape, and I bought the Liquid Palisade earlier this year , so I will be showing how it works in my little tutorials in the end too. 

But first onto the skittlette mani -  can I just take a moment to say I'm completely in love with how gorgeous this is ? This mani is so me - I love Chevron pint - and the Nail Candi Chevron Tape is one of the easiest ones I have used. The peel of super easily - and they don't peel of your polish underneath. One of the reasons I prefer to sponge on the colour on top - I feel you get a much neater look in the end . 

I bought the Nail Candi Liquid Palisade earlier this year for gradients / glitter gradients - and it's such an amazing product . They make clean up super easy. It applies like a polish (I prefer to apply it a little thicker ) and after you do a gradient - you peel off and voila -no messy clean up. Which is one of the main reasons I usually HATED doing gradient nail art. 

One of the reasons I love it for glitter gradients - some glitters are soooo jam packed with glitter that it's hard to apply evenly onto the nail with the brush (As was the case with the Glitter Me This glitter ) .

So onto the photos of this mani - 

 And onto the tutorials -

Tutorial for the Chevron Nail :

1. Apply White Nail Polish on nail ( I used Essence White on White )
2. Apply  Liquid Palisade on cuticle
3. Let it dry for a few minutes
4. Start cutting your Chevron strips
5. Apply chevron tape to nails ( I applied three )
6. Using a little bit of a make-up sponge I applied Black Nail polish onto the sponge
7. Sponge the polish onto the nail
8. Remove the chevron tape
9. Remove the Liquid Palisade and topcoat - and Voila no clean up needed.

Tutorial for Glitter Nail :

1. Apply black nail polish to nail ( I used Essence Black is Back )
2. Apply Liquid Palisade on cuticle
3. Let it dry a few minutes.
4. Using a little bit of a make-up sponge I applied Glitter me This on the sponge
5. Sponge the glitter onto the nail
6, Remove the Liquid Palisade and topcoat.
