If you've been here a while, you'll know that if I come across a good thing, I'm going to keep doing that thing til I run it into the ground. Turns out to be a good thing if you can put a twist on it. My neon nails from a few days ago were really popular and I was just going to leave it at that until someone on Reddit mused about said nails under blacklight. I have a black light bulb so it's the perfect excuse to do even more complicated neon nails. SO. GLAD. I. DID. Cos LOOOK:
I didn't say a lot about how I did the last nails because I didn't have the adhesion technique quite down pat. Turns out, if you do three coats of a black polish - in this case China Glaze Liquid Leather - a bung a lot of top coat on it, studs pressed into it will stay. I mean, you will lose a bunch off the ends but it's worth it. Most will stay. Oh, but do make sure you do whole nails at once, don't stop and start like I did. That's how you get inconsistent spacing. If you're not into that.
The Verdict: I nearly died when I first shined the blacklight on these nails. I mean, LOOK AT THEM. Even the colours that aren't that bright just ignite. I wish some of them were a little straighter but I think it turned out ok. Dammit, now I have to think of something else to do....
