GOT Polish Challenge: Skittle: Turquoise and Navy Skittlette

For this week’s theme in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge I’ve done a turquoise and navy skittle.

I’ve used two old Ciate polishes that came with their 2012 advent calendar: Headliner, which is turquoise, and Power Dressing, which is navy. I love both these colours.

I’ve teamed them with white and used a variety of techniques: a gradient, a dotticure, chevrons and a cling film (saran wrap) manicure.

Beautiful! 🙂


This is stunning! I just love your ideas! The colour combination is great – it works particularly well for the dotticure! 🙂

Thanks. I think the dots are my favourite too. Can’t believe that I wouldn’t try them until fairly recently. They’re so easy; I don’t know what I was so scared of!

Great colours, and those dots… love ’em!


Perfect mani. Such a beautiful combination! 😀

Ha ha – thanks – although I agonised over this manicure. I even drew it all beforehand, which I haven’t done before!
