Demeter's Star Dust - Skittelette
Today's mani is inspired by Marta from Chit Chat Nails, the queen of skittelette manis (I read she even invented the name). I just love her blog and her awesome pictures, if you don't know it yet, you should definitely check it out.
My base color is Picture Polish Demeter, a gorgeous slightly red toned chocolate brown filled with scattered holo particles. This polish is one of the Picture Polish Collaboration Shades and was created by Katie from Harlow & Co. Application was a breeze, I used two easy coats for full opacity.
My ring finger shows three coats of Kosmetik Kosmo Sternenstaub (Star Dust), a shimmering duochrome shifting from gold to pink/mauve. The color shift was very hard to capture, but easily visible in real life.
My middle finger and thumb I stamped with Pueen plate 49 and Kiko 630 (Mirror Collection, on their homepage this color is called Golden Rose). I finished this mani with one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
Picture Polish are available at Llarowe, Harlow & Co.. Overall Beauty and Mei Mei's Signatures.
You'll find Kosmetik Kosmo polishes at their own store (European Union and Switzerland only).
