Hey guys! Today I have a beautiful neon manicure to share with you! I actually did this mani just for fun, but then realized it totally worked for the FingerFood Theme Buffet prompt this week!
This is a manicure I've done before on my mom, as she LOVES rainbows and neon, but have never done it on myself. It's a really fun look, and so easy to achieve!
I just started these with a coat of white and then dabbed on neons using the brush from the bottle. I added a coat of fast drying top coat and waited about 20 minutes before applying pieces of striping tape in fun designs. I then painted on a thick coat of black polish and removed the tape one nail at a time.
I had a bit of a mishap on my thumb where the polish wasn't as dry as I thought and I pulled some up. However I was able to fix it with a black striper, and while it isn't perfect, it wasn't super noticeable.
I was also able to get some shots of these with a black light since my boyfriend just got a pen with a black light and flashlight in the top. These shots aren't as nice as I'd like them to be, but it is a penlight!
The only problem with black light photos is you can see every bit of mess left on my cuticles! I didn't know there WAS any polish there, but the black light shows all.
You may also have noticed these are on my right hand. I was actually wearing them at the same time I was wearing the mani from the last FingerFood prompt!
I really loved this mani, even though the purples I used weren't really neon enough to show up with the black light, I still think it's a cool effect! I wish I'd been able to play laser tag in these, how cool would that have been?
So there you have it, my crazy neon manicure! What do you think about neons? Are they something you like to wear or are they too much for you? Don't forget to check out the other ladies' manicures!
