Last night I was swatching more of the Love Angeline Stuck on Love Nail Shields and decided to recycle a couple of the cross nails into this crazy mani. It’s definitely crazy! It combines all the things I love, vinyls, neons, glitter, studs and charms. I don’t think I could have added one more piece to it haha! These are the type of nails that arrive before you do and shout “Look at me! Give me your attention because I’m a needy mani!” Let’s get to it.
This eye blistering safety cone orange is China Glaze ‘Japanese Koi.’ If Japanese Koi were actually this neon I would definitely have a giant pond full of them and give them all names and we’d be BFFs. Love this color! Aren’t China Glaze neon’s the best? I layered 2 coats over1 coat China Glaze ‘White on White.’ ‘Japanese Koi’ has a nice formula, considering it’s a neon, and applied smoothly but I think a white undie is necessary for this one otherwise it will just be that sheer neon with visibile nail line. I don’t mind doing undies. I’m always kind of confused when people say they hate doing a white undie for neons but then will instead just do 4 layers of the neon when they could do 1 undie and 2 coats of the color….. ? For me at least, I end up doing less coats with an undie and I much prefer how they look over white. Why wear a neon when it’s not the brightest neon? I like when a neon is NEON haha! Can I say neon any more times?
Along with the cross vinyls I decided a skelton hand charm would go with them? Haha ok I guess. I received the skeleton charm from @msnailgasm . I was tired so I went with it but now this morning I’m like oh boy this is just a little nuts but I dig it. I also added 1 coat of China Glaze ‘Fairy Dust’ to the index nail and slapped on a little black stud.
So how about you, have you ever woke up to a mani you did the night before and been all WTF? Haha! Thanks for stopping by!
