Neon Yellow, Black and Holo Silver Lightning Bolts!

Having just reviewed Revlon Starry Pink and Whimsical - two very nice but very girly colours - I had something of a craving for the complete opposite.  Turns out the opposite of pastel pink nails are eye-punchingly neon yellow nails with black and silver holographic lightning bolts and I <3 them.

First up, a white base coat as I had a feeling that the yellow would be a little patchy.  Next, two coats of American Apparel Neon Yellow.  Let me say now that if you've been looking for a perfect yellow highlighter colour, look no further.  It's not possible to overstate how yellow this is.  It's so awesome.  Application was a little iffy but that's what happens with neons.  This wasn't worse than any others.  Next, coat of Seche Vite and wait for this to try properly so the tape doesn't pull up the yellow. Cutting a lightning bolt shape in a pre-palm-stuck piece of tape, I added a coat of Rimmel Black Satin, my favourite black topped with another coat of Seche Vite.  Finally, the piece de resistance, a coat of Nfu-Oh 61, a super pretty silver holo.  I've actually had this one in my drawer for a while as I tried it months ago and it just wasn't holo at all.  I didn't add a top coat to this one which seemed to help keep the rainbow.







The Verdict:  I love taping manis, especially those in neon and holo flavours.  The taping on this one could be neater but it looks cool a bit messy.  Also don't have enough good things to say about American Apparel Neon Yellow or Nfu-Oh 61, they're both so awesome, in their own ways.

  1. I did something very similar when I first started my blog. You'll notice my picture beside my name on this comment is just that! Love yours with the holo though! Good call!

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
