Silver and blue skittlette

Hi everyone!

Guess what? This is my 100th blog post! I didn’t realise until I started typing this up so I didn’t do anything specific for it, but I do love today’s nails πŸ˜€ You probably know by now that I love silver and blue together so I decided to use them for a fun skittlette combining stamping, glitter and texture. sally-hansen-pacific-blue-tip-top-nail-chic-armourplate-rocky-road-glitter-opi-liquid-sand-it's-frosty-outside-kiss-me-at-midnight-stamped-moyou-sailor-collection--3For my index finger, I did 2 coats of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue followed by 2 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic Rocky Road Glitter, which is the most gorgeous glitter topped filled with different sized holographic glitters.
