I've Been Attacked By Highlighter's!!

Juuust kidding!  Hello dolls :)  I'm still sick.  Alas, that is the way of things and I'm hoping it shall pass soon...

In down time, I've been looking for new nail techniques and inspirations.  I've found a lot of things that I'm excited to try (and I will do my best to give credit where credit is due, as usual).  I am amazed at the things I've stumbled across on the inter-webs.  And so many great tutorials on YouTube!I saw a technique using a fan brush by Simple Nail Art Designs that I had to try...

fan brush, neon, highlighter, stripes, bright, colorful, fun, nail art, nail design, mani
Colors Used: Finger Paints - Inkblot Blue, China Glaze - Pool Party, China Glaze - Celtic Sun

Aaaahhhh I love it so much!!

 More after the jump...

I started with a white base and then I followed by example (not quite the way she does it in the video but the same concept).  I swear I didn't touch these photo's up at all!  My point-and-shoot did all of the work lol.

My hubby said it looked like I scribbled on my nails with a highlighter.  He also called them awesome. He has a unique way of giving compliments lol.

This technique required some patience but it was a lot of fun!  It took me about 35-40 mins from base coat to top coat to finish.  I watched an episode of Castle while do it :)  I love this mani so much That I'm going to keep it on until tomorrow at least lol...

Here is a link to the video :)

I hope you enjoy this mani as much as I do...

Until next time!
