So apparently I'm a bit broken as no sooner did I finish my nice, staid monochrome dot gradient mani that I took it off and replaced it with a mani so eyeball-punchingly neon and rainbow glittered that my brain still hurts. Yeah. Glitter and neon, baby! You didn't need your eyes in solid format, anyway, right?
I started this monstrosity off with three coats of American Apparel Neon Yellow. I'm quite fond of this polish as not only is it a true highlighter yellow, it covers well without being too streaky. That's often a problem with the neons but this one was fine, even without underwear. Then, using my usual technique, I added the rainbow glitter stripes to my thumb and ring fingers. As that wasn't enough, I mattified the other fingers, cos you know, why not. Cameras cannot possibly be expected to handle this level of neon but trust me, this is very very bright.
The Verdict: This may not be my most sophisticated effort but I love the combination of the neon and rainbow glitter, and the matte. This is so eye-catching that my male Project Manager at work commented on it, it's so in your face. Hooray!
