Hi guys, today I decided to try a skittle manicure with some grayed out tones that I have. Here is the effect:

From left to right, I used: OPI Tickle My France-y, Essie Merino Cool, Essie Chinchilly and Essie Sew-psyched.

These were 2 coats each and 1 coat of Essie's Good to Go topcoat for the extra glossy effect.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the colors mesh together even though they are quite different. Despite the difference, they are actually quite cohesive.

What do you think of this mani? Would you try skittling?

Well, that's it for now! Thanks for reading! ❤


  1. Ooooh Chinchilly and Sew Psyched! <3 <3

  2. You picked great colors for it! I haven't tried a skittlemani, but this looks nice :)

  3. @JQ: I love those colors too!

    @Shiny!: Thanks! You should definitely try a skittlemani, I think they're super fun and definitely a way to try out more colors :P

  4. They look great together, well chosen!

  5. Thanks guys! I really appreciate your comments! <3

  6. I have and love "Sew Psyched". And now I definitely have to get my hands on "Merino Cool" and "Chinchilly"!

  7. Thank you sooo much for this post, exactly what I was looking for... Seeing Merino Cool right next to Chinchilly. Awesome.
