Oh the woe of being a nail polish blogger - waiting and hoping for mail to come. Right now I'm waiting on a whole bunch of new glitter and I can't wait to try it. Every night I sit and stare longingly at the little pots of glitter scattered across my table but I must be patient so I don't burn out on my mermaid scale nails. This rather long-winded segue leads me to tonight's mani, something a little different to what I normally do. Inspired by this post, I decided to crack open my second favourite type of polish after glitter - neon - and play with some tape.
First up, I added two coats of each of Neon Red, Neon Orange, Neon Yellow, Neon Blue and Neon Purple, all from American Apparel. I've talked about these before but they're my favourite for neons that aren't streaky or annoying to apply. Next, I lay three to four strips of striping tape across my nails and added a coat of my favourite black, Rimmel Black Satin. Remove the tape and viola!
The Verdict: American Apparel make great neons and I love how they look with the black. Adding a super glossy top coat makes these so pretty <3
Very pretty! I love how there's just a pop of colour because of the striping tape. :)ReplyDelete
