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!!!  ❤

Have you seen the new SCKJsatin trendmatters polish, more specifically Sinful Colors Konstellation?  This is my new favorite color.  It’s a color shifter and it dries streak free.  The SC website describes it as a mysterious pink and green duo-chrome shadeTo me the green is more of a teal.  This color is memorizing and it dries as a satin matte.  I really did not have high hopes for King Kylie’s Sinful line but this color really makes me want to head to Target and seek the other colors.  Sinful Colors Konstellation is a must have!!!

Often my manicures reflect the seasons or holidays.  This mani reflects April showers bringing May flowers.  And wow I can’t wait for the May flowers.  Bring on warm weather.

This is a 3:2 look.  The 3 nails are my April showers.  The showers are two colors sponged on the nail using SquareHue mint green Duval Street on the bottom part of the nail closest to the tip and sky blue St John on the cuticle side.  I was thinking rain and grass.  Then using Konad white and Bundle Monster plate BM-S229 I stamped on a stormy/windy cloud image.

The 2 nails are my flowers.  For this look I sponged on two pinks and a sherbet orange.  The pinks are SquareHue Eiger and Mallory Street and the orange is also SquareHue Temple Bar.  I was thinking this is a perfect combo to stamp flowers over.  Using the same Bundle Monster plate I stamped on a flower image using Konad black.  Then I added a Northern Lights holo top coat over the 2 flower nails.

This is cute… although it looked better in my mind.

Hope you get to enjoy some May flowers soon!!

I am a little behind on sharing but here is my 2016 St Pat mani.

I got this idea from You Tuber Simplynailogical, I really loved how it turned out.

Used Square Hue MEGA holo glitter Night Fever as my sparkle base.  Then using liquid highlighters I made rainbow nails ❤  I recommend this technique super quick and easy!!

Merry Christmas Eve friends!!  I can’t tell you how excited I am for this weekend.  It has been a great day so far; snuggles on the couch with my cute little family.  Now I am just getting settled in my mani cave to watch the movie The Holiday and stamp over my matte green nails.

But first I wanted to share my Christmas nails from last week.  I loved this look so much that I wore it all week.  That has to be some sort of holiday nail record for me.

Colors used for my look are:

Square Hue hot stuff red called Bird Fling on my thumb, index and middle fingers.  This might be my new favorite red creme.  It goes on like a dream and is oh so high gloss, love it!   My Ringer finger base is Zoya Genesis as state on Zoya Website Genesis by Zoya can be best described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish – designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust! Such a perfect base for Christmas nail stamping (ignore my shrinkage–I have a love hate relationship with seche vite fast dry top coat).  My littlest fingers are China Glaze This is Tree-Mendous, a lovely green/gold micro glitter that dries a lot like a pixie dust would.

About the nail stamping:

On my thumb I stamped on an ugly Christmas sweater image from Bundle Monster plate BM-S215 using Konad white.

On my index finger I did Candy cane stripes from BM-022. ❤

On my middle finger we have Rudy; used BM-Ho1 with Zoya Desiree and of course I dotted on a red nose using the red previously mentioned above and some black eyes.

And there you have it.  Random skittle Christmas nails.  I got lots of compliments on my nails at my new job; they are starting to figure out that I love nail art 🙂

You guys have a joyous holiday.
