Black and white skittelette

Nail Art Sunday at Lelack and today's theme is "skittelette". When I first heard about the "new thing" (a couple of months ago) and learned what it was I was a bit surprised, because it was something old but just with a new fancy name, the old accent nail(s) was re-vamped. But with that said, I love manicures with accent nails and skittelettes has become a trend which means many people does it, which means that I have an easier access to nail art I like. I don't like all skittelettes out there though, a few are too incohesive. With that in mind I decided to color match my skittelette to make it super-cohesive. I think I'm quite happy with the result, it's black and white, and that always work even though I still wonder if it wouldn't have been better with black creme nails.








The rules of a skittelette apparently are to have two accent nails with some sort of decoration/design, one glitter or texture nail and two creme polished nails in any order even if the above seems to be the most common skittelette order.

Polishes used:
HM - 
Nordic Cap - NP12
Nordic Cap - NP13
W7 - Salt N' Pepper
diamond shaped metal stud rhinestones


What do you think about skittelettes? Are there any you don't like? Have you tried it? Did you like my black and white version? Looking forward to hear from you. ;)

  7. Väldigt tjusigt och avancerat! Tycker det blev fint med de vita krämnaglarna men visst, svart hade säkert också varit snyggt!

  9. These are gorgeous, I love how artsy this is and the gold studs make it so unique! I know what you mean about skillettes, sometimes they are so randomly paired and it just looks bizarre so I really like that you kept to a colour scheme!

    1. Thank you! :D good, then it's just not me..except colors, finishes and tecniques etc can hold it together too but when everything is mixed like super crazy I think it easily gets too much, the thin line between genius and crazy.. ;)

  11. Jag hade nog föredragit svarta krämnaglar framför vita men det är bara jag det. Annars gillar jag lång- och ringfingret, snyggt som attan.

    1. Tack! Ja, jag funderade ju på det om svarta inte varit bättre och skulle nästan byta men eftersom mitt glitterlack var vitt så tänkte jag att det svarta skulle stå ut för mycket, sådär "in the making" av manikyren. Men jag får helt enkelt testa någon gång. :)

    1. Tack, ja antar att splattret kanske bidrar mest till stimmigheten i kombination med att det är en skittlette men kul ändå :P

  16. to be honest, I've never heard of skittelettes 'till today...
    I think, mostly it looks a bit weird and too complicated...

    but. I like yours! it's been about 5 skittelettes in my news today... and for sure - yours is the best one! ;)

    1. That is not weird that you haven't heard the word before since it's a very new word in the nail polish community. I agree with you, sometime there's too many techniques, colors and finishes in the same manicure so it gets messy, but I like some of them. And I'm happy you liked mine, thank you! :D
