This post is kind of a hodge podge of polish. I wanted to do nail striping skittles but I also wanted to use some blue and purple polishes... and clearly was too lazy to do a separate mani for each color so.... the striping tape skittle mani was born.
The base color of this circus is BYS Yabba Dabba Blue, now let me take you on a tour through each finger:
Index- China Glaze Blue Hawaiian (color that I'm holding in my hand). Blue Hawaiian is a sheer light blue jelly that has round small holographic glitter in it and it is a great top coat! I'll be using this one to do a full post soon.
Middle- I taped off a design, in this case 3 lines, using nail striping tape and then painted over it with Wet N Wild Stream of Wonder which is a silver shimmery medium blue.
Ring- I used nail striping tape and taped off my nail in a plaid pattern and used Wet N Wild Disturbia over it. Disturbia is a deep purple with lots of shimmer to it, it really demands attention and was a good contrast between Stream of Wonder and Grape Juice.
Little- Taped off my pinky with nanil striping tape and painted over it with China Glaze's Grape Juice which is a really pretty purple that leans towards being a foil but looks like it has micro glitter in it. This polish is super fun and I plan on doing a full mani with it soon.

There's also a YouTube I did on how to use the striping tape.
