Put your shades on because my nails are bright!!
I couldn’t just pick one color so I went for ten.
Here are my Neon Skittle nails
Here is the list:
Starting with left hand
Pinky China Glaze Purple Panic (neon)
Ring finger China Glaze Love’s a beach
Middle finger Salon Perfect Flamingo Flare
Index finger China Glaze Orange Knockout(neon)
Thumb China Glaze Sun Worshiper
Right hand
Thumb China Glaze Celtic Sun(neon)
Index finger China Glaze I’m with the lifeguard
Middle finger Salon Perfect Gone Sailing
Ring finger China Glaze Towel Boy Toy
Pinky China Glaze Flying Dragon(neon)
Under most neons it’s good to wear underwear. I used wet n wild white creme for my base coat, it really makes the neon colors pop.
Most of these colors dried matte but I applied my Seche Vite fast dry top coat for some real in your face shine!!
I just love neon polish it makes me feel happy and tan.

Ps don’t laugh at my shorty thumb nail, it never gets long on my right hand.

Happy Friday and Happy official first day of summer!! TGIF!
Let me just say I love holographic polish!! I know I have said it before but really truly is there anything better?
This China Glaze holo polish is from the summer 2013 collection.
When Stars Collide is a beautiful deep maroon color. It’s a bit darker than I like during the summer, but the holo finish is gorgeous in the summer sun. These pictures do not do this holo justice.
I have to admit when I first put When Stars Collide on I was a bit disappointed with the holo effect. But when you see it in all it’s glory in the sun you have no choice but to fall in love.
Have a great weekend everyone!!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Just a quick simple mani, inspired by flowers in my garden.
I have these gorg. lilies in my yard, they are just lovely.
I love love love the beautiful mauve color.
I found a similar color in my polish collection, Sinful Colors Out of Bounds. This is a beautiful mauve pink Creme polish. It probably only needed one coat but I did two because I always do at least two coats.
I love the simplicity of this mani. Sometimes simple is good.
Hope the start to your week is great and filled with color.

Hump Day!!!
Ok more stamping!!! I know I can’t help it. It’s an addiction.
This time I used hearts from Pueen plate 41.
Bottom middle image on ring, middle and index fingers. On thumb and pinky double hearts.
On to the polish…
Pinky, index and thumb I used China Glaze Concrete Catwalk.
On ring finger SinfulShine Wisp white.
On middle China Glaze Love’s a Beach a neon in your face pink.
Colors used to stamp Wet n Wild French White Creme and Black Creme. Both are great stamping polishes.

I like the results. Super pleased with the stamping plate. It’s fun and bright and who doesn’t love hearts?
Have a great rest of the week. Hope the weekend comes quick.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hey polish lovers.
Theme today short, simple and neon.
I had a hard time deciding on a color today. So I asked Mr Am1e and he said red, he always says red 😉 So I picked one of my all time favorites China Glaze Rose Among Thorns (neon) this is a vintage neon red.
Love love love ❤ this neon, my bottle is actually almost half gone that never happens!
I did not have to use white underwear to make this neon pop, but however I did four coats due to VNL. If you don’t know VNL is visible nail line I try to avoid VNL if I can, just a personal preference 🙂
And look my cuticles are looking so much better, yay!!
I love how this colors makes the palest skin look tan. Bring on summer heat and pool days!!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hey polish lovers.
TGiAF!! And I get afternoon off tomorrow, bonus. I ❤ Fridays!

So it’s official I need a stamping intervention. I’m addicted to stamp designs. I am getting better and better with this technique. Not perfect but I will keep practicing, promise. I love how stamping takes my manis to a whole other level.

I’m so in ❤love❤with my SquareHue SoBe 0613 collection that I had to play with all three colors tonight.
The collection consists of Ocean Drive a pale teal which you saw in my last post. Collins Avenue a neon coral color, love love love. And last but definitely not least Lincoln Road a gorg taupe.

Pay close attention because I really jumped around with the colors just to test stamping color combos. I did the teal on my pinky fingers, neon coral on ring n middle and taupe on index and thumb.

Then I choose my Pueen plate 37. It’s the image on the left, fun circles. I really wish I had some tropical stamp to go with the SoBe theme but no such luck. Guess I better shop around wink wink.

On the teal I stamped the taupe, it’s ok. On the coral I stamped both the taupe and teal and they look identical, don’t love. On the index I stamped the coral over the taupe, which was better. But on my thumbs I stamped the teal over the taupe…ding ding…win. Wish I did them all that way. Live and learn.

Well now you know so get out there and stamp teal over taupe polish you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
