I was in the mood for something different this week, so I pulled out the neons. I like neons, but I don’t really like them on me. Still, I’ve acquired quite a few of them. I decided to go all out and go for the neon yellow. I have a terrible habit of putting on neons at night, loving them, and then kind of hating them the next morning in the sun. They’re just so damn bright, even though I guess that’s the point. So, instead of taking it off, I decided to add some designs using striping tape. I think they turned out pretty cool (even my dad complimented them!), but I still couldn’t wear them for more than a day. Baby steps.
The neon yellow is Nina Ultra Pro Solar Flare over white. Once it was dry, I created the designs with striping tape and painted on Essie Power Clutch before peeling the tape off.
The thumb is my favorite, but it too soooo long! I definitely need some more striping tape practice. I copied most of these designs from The Nailasaurus, who is ah-mazing!
What do you think of this mani? When I have another three hours (yes, it took that long to do both hands), I will definitely try this again with different colors.
