I'm so sorry to have abandoned you over the weekend. I had a going away party Friday (miss you Olive!!), a wedding on Saturday and a "welcome back" party on Sunday. I'm all partied out! I'm also very tuckered out and am in need of a pick-me-up, so I've decided to rock neons all week :D I'm hoping to get at least 4 mani's done and posted this week, 5 if I'm lucky ;)
Colors Used: Cosmetic Arts - Explosive, China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy, Wet n Wild - Nerd Alert Screech, Daisy Nail Lacquer - White Diamond, Lush Lacquer - Clowning Around
Explosive is the first neon polish that I ever bought back when I started my polish journey. I found it at Ross for $2-$3 and figured if I didn't like it, it wasn't the end of the world. I fell head over heels for it and that is where my love for neon began. I have to admit that I am not into neon fashion, I think it looks ridiculous lol. But I looooove me a good neon polish!
I started with a white base on all of my nails. White polish just really helps neon colors *POP!*. I've also found that it helps me to even out streaking that can occur if I were to use the neon alone. Index finger was done with a striper and a lot of patience. Middle finger got 2 coats of Clowning Around and the rest of my nails got 3 coats of Explosive.
On a sad note... I broke my bottle of Explosive when trying to get it open, snapped the mouth of the bottle right off (just call me Miss Hulk lol). Thankfully I saw China Glaze's Sun Worshiper (a comparable color) at my local nail supplier the other day and since they sell CG's for $2... well, I'll call that a win!
Alrighty, I'm off to go catch up on some house work *bleh*. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and that Monday didn't treat you terribly :)
Until next time!
