...And now it's back to the polish. Have you overdone it with the neon this summer, yet still want a little colour in your life? If so, you feel exactly as I felt when I did this mani. I've done way too many neon manis, but I'm not ready to switch to the October dark hues yet, so I compromised.
Luckily, my ever so thoughtful fiance surprised me with a box of nail art supplies he'd bought for me! I'll be doing a review of the products in a later post but for now I'll just say the Shany stamping plates and striping polishes are very good so far.
-I started with my usual clear base coat, then Sinful Colours polish in "Secret Admirer." Two coats gave me a mostly opaque finish, albeit a little streaky on one or two nails.
-I used my Konad stamping set with white Konad special nail polish to apply my stamp. The pattern came from Shany's "SH22" image plate.
-I used Shany's striping polishes in 1 (lime green with a pearly finish), 3 (neon yellow), 4 (neon pink), 18 (neon blue) and 23 (neon orange) to colour the triangles in. I left a few triangles white here and there.
-I finished with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear topcoat in "Invisible."
I later decided I wanted some more neon so I stamped my thumbnails as well, but it's up to you whether you want to do one accent nail, multiple accent nails, or...stamp all the nails!!!!!!
