NEON!

Monday, 20 August 2012

I am very excited today as one of my lovely friends has managed to source the hallowed OPI Spotted polish, and it should be arriving at some point today...  In preparation, I decided to go for NEON nails underneath, as I've heard bright colours are best in order for them to show through underneath.

Whenever I use Neon colours, I always do a basecoat of white underneath, as it really helps the colour pop out.  These nails are BRIGHT!  It's really difficult to get them to show how bright they are, so I waited until dusk time last night to take pictures, as that helps a bit.  Does make my hands look a bit of an odd colour though, but it's definitely a bit truer to the actual brightness of the neon.

Also, for me, Neons are so horrible to apply, they really streak badly.  I think there was five or six coats of most of these and it still wasn't perfect.

I bought the Island Girl polishes in Vegas last year, they are Green (1129 Sugar Cane), Orange (1133 Waikiki Colour) and Pink (1102 Aloha Dream).  The yellow is Sinful Colors Neon Melon, and the blue isn't really a neon, it's a bright blue I bought from Primark.
