True Blood Inspired Nails for Tonight's Premiere

I've been watching True Blood since episode one, and granted with Billith and all, it's gone a little off its original path, I can't wait for tonight's premiere. I've only read through book four but I'm hoping to catch up to season 6. I have to admit the books don't grab me as much as a show (shhhh yes I'm a literature lover so please don't tell on me).

Well apparently, I'm in such a daze, I almost forgot about tonight's premiere. Jen from My Nail Polish Obsession asked me what nails I was going to do for the premiere, and I can't believe I forgot. I threw this "skittlette" mani together in about twenty minutes and I'm proud! Skittlette manicures are manicures with two design nails and then plain nails to complement the design.

Index: 3 coats of OPI Solitaire (although two would have sufficed).
Thumb/pinky: 2 coats of Essie Bonded
Design accents: Gradient of Orly Au Champagne, Zoya Sookie (appropriate, right?), and Loreal Raven's Strength topped with Sonoma Nail Art Deadly Zins.

I LOVE the end result. I was nervous the mix of textures/glitters would be too much and contradicting but I don't think so. Hope you enjoy!
