Hey all!  I have a fun neon look to share this time.  All the neons I used this time are China Glaze polishes.  Quick neon tip: first I started with white undies so my neons would have that neon POP.

To get this look I did a Tri-sponge technique alternating three neons on every other nail.  Color combos are as such:

Pinks/orange/yellow called Love’s a Beach/Japanese Koi/Celtic Sun                                                                 Greens/Blues/Purples called In the Lime Light/Turned up Turquoise/Dune Our Thing

Basically I sponged on the tri-color combos and alternated nails; just that easy.  I am really happy with how the neons blended together on each nail.  Then I added a funky stamp from Bundle Monster + Sloteazzy BM XL210 blogger designed images.  I love how the swirl looks on the neons; super fun for summer.  I also used a matte top coat to finish.

Hope all your neons are popping!!!  ❤

This nail of the day is a dark romantic look.  I used three colors to get this look along with some stamp layering.  On my thumb, index and little finger I used Square Hue Sierra Sunset.  Sierra Sunset is a dusty frosty dark rose red, so so beautiful.  On my middle and ring fingers I used a Square Hue dark grey called Y2K.  Playing with Pueen buffet plate 80 I added rose images in the opposite color to start with and then to add another layer I added another rose image using Konad black stamping polish.  I really love these black rose nails, my only wish is that my camera would pick up the complexity of this manicure.  But you get the idea…enjoy!

The nail of the day “hues” are absolutely gorgeous.

To get this look I used a sponge to apply and blend two colors.  The color closest to the cuticle is Square Hue Drop Out and the tip color is Watergate.  These are both duo chrome colors so I thought they would look really great as a sponge gradient.  Watergate is purple with blue flash and Drop out is blue with purple flash.  They almost match too much, in some light you almost could not tell that I had two colors on.  But regardless both of these colors are gorgeous, showstoppers.

Oh well my one complaint is the SHRINK **gasp** ugh nothing worse than spending all that time and your tips shrink, super annoying. For that very reason I didn’t get to wear this fab combo too long, my nail OCD just wouldn’t allow it.  But if you look beyond the dreaded SHRINK on the tips this combo is pretty rad.

I have a fun colorful skittle manicure to share with you all today.  This manicure is a perfect example of what happens when you get a new polish line and can’t decide on any one color.  The majority of these colors are from the 2016 Zoya Sunset collection.  This color combo makes me think of California sunsets and palm trees <3.

Here is a list of the colors I used to do this look:

From thumb to little finger I used these five colors Square hue St. Lucia, Zoya Cam, Zoya Dixie, Zoya Brynn and Zoya Liv.  Really love this summery sunset look.

Happy 4th of July!  I have a super festive manicure to share today.

I started with Square Hue Stars as my base white polish.  This off white creme has a shimmer finish, it is a real pretty base for my nail art.  Using Square Hue Bird Fling I added red to my tips using the dry brush technique.  Basically you get the brush real dry and brush on your color, it gives a worn distressed look.  Over that red I added some Square Hue holo pink glitter that I LOVE called Fireworks.  This glitter is heaven in a bottle.  Plus it looks amazing over the red

Using a Fingerpaints electric blue called Magritte’s Masterpiece I stamped on some random fireworks images from Bundle Monster plate BM-S211.   I really love how this turned out.  I was a bit skeptical at first but it really came together.  The Fireworks glitter really sets this look off.

Hope you all have a fantastic holiday!
