Manicure Monday: First ever Skittlette manicure!

Hello Princesses!

This Monday I decided to try the infamous Skittlette Manicure, coined by the lovely ChitChatNails!

The DEFINITION:
skit·tle·tte:
Not quite a full skittles look, a skittlette manicure is one with at least two different accent nails. Pick any formation/order you wish, but for a true skittlette at least two nails need to be the same (the others can all be different) OR two pairs of identical nails and a different nail.
For those of you who like math/equations.  A skittlette can be any of the following:
AABBC, AAABC, AABCD
(in any order on your nails so that AAABC=ABCAA=AACBA)

This week I received Zoya's Pixie Dust - Godiva and OPI's Care to Danse?, and since they looked so pretty together (and I couldn't wait to wear them!) I decided to use them for my Skitlette manicure. On my pinkie finger is OPI's Second Honeymoon.
 
I am actually a little disappointed at the way this mani turned out, since Care to Danse is such a cool toned lilac, it doesn't fit all that well with Second Honeymoon which is a warm toned pink. It turns out that I don't own a cool toned pink, but if I could afford to drop nearly $30 on an OPI polish to complete my mani I would've chosen OPI's You Callin' Me A Lyre? 

I'm now itching to complete the set of Zoya Pixie Dust's and OPI's NYC Ballet Collection! >< They are just all such gorgeous colours and I want to collect them all!
