KB Shimmer had a sale last week or so; I indulged.  My latest mani is a couple polishes I picked up from that sale.  This is a 3:2 mani which means I couldn’t decide on one color so I did 2 🙂

My three is a KB Shimmer neon Color me bad it is so bright even without white undies–totally on fleek.  My two is Salt Water Sassy, a teal cream full of multi colors and sizes of glitter–they call this a crelly glitter.  I love this combo; what a super fun summer look.


Happy polishing!

This is a perfect mani if you are having a hard time saying goodbye to summer.

I finally ordered Zoya summer 2016 NEON collection.  YAY!  Took my long enough but I got them on a BOGO sale, SCORE!

This mani started with white undies of course as recommended for all neon polish to make them really POP.  Then using my makeup sponge I applied a Zoya neon and nude polish to get this look.  My neon is called Bisca and my nude is Cala.  

I really love a nude nail with a pop of color on the tips.  It’s like a french with a TWIST or as I say “Funky French”.

What do you think would you do this combo?

This manicure started as a nude/neon gradient.  Using Zoya Cala and China Glaze Celtic Sun(neon) I did some sponge nail art, I thought it turned out super cute.  A nude nail with a pop of color on the tip is always fun.  And neon is a perfect summer hue.

After one day of my nude/neon I just had to add a stamp.  Using Bundle Monster plate S110 and Zoya Liv an orchid purple polish I stamped on random images over my nude/neon.  This really turned out cute.  I felt like “OM” yoga nails; this look is very zen.   Honestly I really had a hard time taking it off because it was cute.

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!!!  ❤

Hello polish lovers!  I am excited to share some super fun summer nails with you this time.

Since I found the latex barrier I have been obsessed with sponging on my polish, it makes clean up a snap.  Plus I can pick three colors if I can’t choose just one.  This is a really cool neon combo with a happy flower stamp.

Colors used I used:

Closest to the cuticle China Glaze neon green Shore Enuff, the middle white is Pure Ice Super Star!, and the neon pink on the tip is China Glaze Shocking Pink.   I did not use a white undie this time.  I just sponged this trio right on to my naked nail.

Of course I had to add a stamp.  I have so many plates now it gets harder and harder to choose an image but I decided to go with one of my newest Pueen plate 112 using Konad black stamping polish.

I love how this turned out so bright and summery absolutely perfect for a summertime manicure.

Happy polishing!

Hello happy hump day! I have some wild nails to share with you this time.

While shopping for a friends b-day present the other day I ran into the Sinful Colors neon collection at the local Walgreens.  HaHa funny story when I first saw these I thought awwww I don’t need any more neon polish so I quickly shopped for my friend and left.  Needless to say I went back in less than three hours and bought all the neon colors they had, 6 in total.  This collection is different due to the packaging, the bottles are actually covered so you don’t see the true color through the glass; odd I know.  That is why I was a little put off at first but then I decided I must try these neons for myself.

I decided to do a neon skittle jelly sandwich:

Thumbs: Orange/yellow neon Rays of bright

Index: Orange/red neon Vivid a try

Middle: pink neon Bright to the point

Ring: dark pink neon Bright B4 UR eyes

Pinky: Pink/Purple neon neON and on

I did use a white undie for these neons.  And just for fun since these are jelly like…I stamped them with animal print image from my newest Bundle Monster plate from Time machine collection BM-XL136 using black konad polish.  Then I added one last thin layer of polish over my stamp.  Like a cheetah skittle jelly sandwich 😉

Overall I am pretty happy with how these turned out; my only complaint is that my pinks are a little too similar but oh wells.

BTW I hope to stay on top of the blog, but be warned I have decided to join the local gym so I can get in some evening workouts.  I have some (ok lots of) stubborn pounds I am trying to go after so if my posts seem kind of sparse that is why.  My intentions are to work this fat off, keep fab nails and keep blogging plus all the regular normal day to day stuff so wish me luck.  I feel like I can do it all 🙂  Burn baby Burn; bye fat bye.

Happy polishing!
