Entry for Sincerely Stephanie's Skittles contest!

Today I have for you my contest entry for Sincerely Stephanie's Skittle nail art contest! :)

As I mentioned before, I'm always quite hesitant about skittles because I'm afraid each nail won't "blend" with the others... there's a fine line between a coalescent skittle manicure and a mis-matched mess.

With that said... I've been meaning to do this contest entry for a couple weeks and the other day I finally got the inspiration kick I needed... and I came up with this...

Stephanie's rules for the contest were as follows:

She states that: "Skittles are easy to create, each nail just has to be different! Each nail can be in the same colours with just a different design, or each nail can be completely different colours! As long as you don't exactly repeat a nail then you have a skittle"
