Day 6 of OMD Challenge- BAM Neon Cloud Mani!

bam_neon_cloud_mani

Welcome to day 6 of the OMD Challenge!  I’m psyched that today is NEON DAY since I have always been a huge fan of neon polishes.  The brighter, the better!  I love wearing nails that are eye catching.  I spend a lot of time on my nails- so I guess I want people to see them?  Hehehe.  Do you feel the same way?

I have the perfect polish for today’s theme!  It’s a bright green from Funky Fingers called Limelight.  I went with a ‘cloud mani’ for this design.  Have you ever tried it?  If not, you gotta!  It’s so simple and no special tools required!  Here’s an excellent photo tutorial on Nailside blog.

For this design I’m wearing:

Funky Fingers ♥ Limelight (2 easy coats)

NYC ♥ Black Lace Creme

NYC ♥ French White Tip

Cheeky CH47 Plate ♥ BAM stamp applied with Konad black polish

BAM!  It’s so bright and in your face!  Here’s a swatch of Limelight since it’s just so pretty- I couldn’t resist photographing it before I started my nail art.↓  I actually won this green from In The Gray Area’s awesome giveaway!  I feel like I could do a whole month’s worth of posts using all the cool polishes that J sent me.  15 in total!  So, if you’re out there and you haven’t won a giveaway yet- keep trying!  YOUR DAY WILL COME!  Maybe you will enter the OMD challenge and win the giveaway at the end?  Ya never know!  😀

Striping Tape Peace Signs

It’s TAPE MANI day in the April Nail Art Challenge.  Striping tape always amazes me!  Every time I use it I’m like WOW- this stuff is great!  It peels off your nail without a problem and what an easy way to get some crisp clean nail art!

I started with a few base coats of my neon green polish by Cynthia Rowley. It’s so bright and green that it really reminded me of Earth Day from earlier in the week.  I taped my nails with some inexpensive striping tape from amazon and it surprisingly didn’t take very long.  Then I topped it off with an awesome teal holo!    This scattered holo is called Teal Dimension from L.A. Girl.  I’ve swatched other holos from that collection here and here. I can’t get enough of this stuff!   Then when I peeled the tape off the neon-it was like POW against the teal!  The whole color combo and the peace sign remind me of Earth, Mother Nature, peace and love.  I hope you like it cuz it was fun for me to wear! Peace! xx
