Laid-Back NEW31DC Day 7 - Ombre or Skittle

For this challenge, I have decided to do a skittle mani, since I have never done one before. I was really excited to try this out and spent quite a while trying to come up with a nice design. Take a look!

I started out with Julep Eva, then added silver & glitter accents.On my thumb, I used a pretty flakie - Zoya Chloe, and for my index finger, I used Julep Harley to stamp from BM19. On my middle finger, I did a gradient with Eva and Pure Ice Beware, then on my ring finger, I used a dotting tool to add dots, then did stamping using BM20 on my pinkie using Julep Harley again for both.

Here's a pic of my thumb when the sun randomly peeked out. Pardon the dry skin - I couldn't pass up the opportunity for sunshine for a lack of moisturizer! LOVE these flakies!

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out what everyone else did.
