A Maiden Skittlette In Blue

Another saturday, another skittlette mani, another nod to Skittlette-Queen Marta from Chit Chat Nails :-)

My index finger shows three coats of OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam (Holland Collection), a light grey-ish blue with lots of silver shimmer.

On my middle and ring finger I'm wearing three coats of Elevation Polish Jungfrau, a medium, slightly navy-leaning blue with small flakes shifting from aqua to green. Jungfrau is, as far as I've seen, the only Elevation Polish named after a Swiss Mountain, located in the Berner Oberland next to Eiger and Mönch and part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I've never been on top of Jungfrau but I once had the chance to take a helicopter ride around Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, a absolutely wonderufl sight. I didn't know it before, so I didn't bring a camera and can't show you pictures, though.

A little absolutely non polish related trivia for my non german speaking readers: Jungfrau means maiden/virgin, and because she should stay a virgin, the mountain Mönch (= monk) is placed between her and the (male) mountain Eiger ;-)

My pinkie and thumb show three coats of Nubar Boyfriend Jeans, a muted denim blue with grey untertones, topped with a stamping using Color Club Lumin-Icecent, a pale blue foil polish, and Messy Mansion plate A31.

Elevation Polish are available at their own store and at Llarowe.


  1. Loving the pinky! :-) But it looks great all combined too. You are such an artist.

    1. Thank you so much for your nice words, Melissa! You made me blush now :-)

    1. Thank you, Deborah! It's probably the only (funny) trivia I know about a mountain :-D
