Neon Dots

I’ve gotten in the habit of practicing nail art on the polish I’m about to remove.  It’s a great way to try new techniques or designs – if it looks terrible, you were going to remove it anyway, and if it looks great, you can keep it for another day or two.  I don’t have a lot of neon nail polishes, but I really wanted to try a new one I bought the other day, and I think it turned out pretty well.

I’ve always loved the idea of toning down a neon with a nude.  I don’t know that I would wear full-on neon nails, but it does make a great accent.  For this mani, I started with the base of Zoya Jacqueline that I was already wearing and just used a dotting tool and China Glaze Japanese Koi for the dots.  Orange is easily my favorite shade of neon, and I really love the tone of Japanese Koi (you have to see it in person, it’s nearly impossible to capture neons on camera).  I got mine in the normal display at Sally’s so you should be able to find it.

I’m not sure I like the dots all that much, but I do really like the colors.  I think I will be using Japanese Koi a lot come summer.

Do you like neon polishes?  What’s your favorite one?
