Skittlette: multicoloured waterfall nails

Hey all!

I've been enjoying creating skittlette manicures, inspired by Marta at Chit Chat Nails - they're a great way to mix up your manis and incorporate different textures and patterns.

Today is my birthday so I wanted to create some bright, festive birthday nails! I took inspiration from Sammy at The Nailasaurus who has done some lovely waterfall manicures.

On my thumb and index nails I used 2 coats of Ulta3 Eighties Fuchsia - I have two bottles of this that look slightly different, I used the pinker version.

On my middle, ring, and pinky I used 2 coats of Ulta3 Lily White. I followed that up with stripes of Ulta3 Eighties Fuchsia, Carrp Top (orange), Jelly (green), and L.A Colors Color Craze Sea Siren (blue). On my pinky I added two coats of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday.

I was really happy with these, they're so bright and fun, plus I love the waterfall nails - they look like bright streamers :)
