I'm kind of obsessing over these nails - I love them so much! I've been bitten by the neon bug, what can I say?!
These nails were inspired by a photo I found on Instagram by @lifeisbetterpolished and her #bestietwinnails with @just1nail. I LOVED it at first sight! And I knew I needed to try it out. I even used some of the same nail polishes :)
Polishes Used: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, Zoya Purity, and OPI My Favorite Ornament
Yes, I had to edit to color-correct, and yes, that made my skin a little orangey. Gross. BUT - these photos still don't quite capture how incredibly bright Flip Flop Fantasy is - but it's one of my favorite polishes! And it looks especially bright with my hands an iota tanner - I sat outside for half an hour at lunch on Monday (it was gloriously hot outside, so I got my much-needed vitamin D the sunny way), and tanned my hands right up!
Anyways, these are free-hand lines. I think that the inspiration nails were done using tape, but for whatever reason my brain thinks tape takes longer, and I'm never really all that successful with tape. So I free-handed. I usually do, anyway. They are not perfect, and I was a little sleepy, but I think they turned out pretty decent on the whole.
What do you think? Are you craving neons now that summer is finally here and getting hot? I know I am!
Thanks for reading!
