Nude and Neon Leopard Nails

I’m on a leopard print kick!  So here’s another fun catty mani for you!

If you’d like to see a tutorial, Polish Alcoholic has a nice one here: TUTORIAL.  A year ago I commented on her tutorial that I loved it…  why did it take me so long to try it?  I have no clue!

  • I started with a base of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth
  • then did two coats of OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around
  • then quickly made some pink, blue and green splotches using 3 neon nail lacquers from Cynthia Rowley
  • then I outlined the neon dots using a black skinny striper polish from L.A. Colors
  • lastly, I finished with a coat of seche vite

Hope you survived the week.  Living for the weekend, amiright?  Have a great one everybody!

Neon Nails

Day 22 of Julie’s Nail Art Challenge is all about neon nails!

For this mani I used 3 of my absolute brightest polishes:

China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

China Glaze Sun Worshiper

Cynthia Rowley Un-named Pink

I also sponged some of the colors over each other – just to blend it a little bit.  Maybe that’s why the french tips look more coral than pink.  I can’t believe how bright this is… plus, it was super-quick and easy.  What great no-fuss look for the summer!  I think I’m ready for my vacay now please! 😀
