The Skittles manicure is the latest Instagram nail trend to try in 2019
Taste the rainbow
Sure, the inspiration for winning formulations often come from the unlikeliest of places (e.g. Glossier's Milky Jelly Cleanser was borne from contact lens solution), there remains a source consistently relied upon within the beauty industry: food. Kale, avocado, and acai don't just belong in the kitchen anymore. They are also served in jars, bottles, and squeezy tubes as star ingredients in the latest skincare and makeup. Some are even packaged to look like baked goods, if you can believe it.
Our obsession with beautifying food hasn't nearly come to a close — food-inspired art has found its way onto our talons as of late, with a certain candy taking centre stage. We're talking about the Skittles mani, an array of rainbow, multi-coloured nails to ease all polish-picking anxieties. Spotted on the likes of our Internet's favourite girls Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, we say it's only a matter of time before the trend finds its way to our shores. Stay ahead of the curve by perusing our roundup of the best colour combinations, below.
