Neon French

Well hello there.  So glad you stopped by to see this crazy fun mani today.  So- always in the Summer neon polishes come out to play and I know the Summer is almost over so I wanted to play with some neon.  Here's what came of that adventure:

 Yes, neon can be obnoxious, but when it's only worn once in a blue moon I think it can be really fun and obviously youthful...maybe too youthful ;).  Remember, if you want to give this look a try- always apply your neon polishes over a coat or two of white opaque polish to really make the neon pop.  Had I applied the yellow directly over the green base polish- this look would not have achieved the wattage you see here.

Here is the base polish, Misa The Grass is Greener on My Side on it's own:
 You're looking at two coats and it's a bit opalescent isn't it- and it dries semi-matte.

Here is Princessa Neon Yellow on it's own:
You're looking at two coats of the yellow over two coats of white.  Sometimes that's what makes neons tricky is that you end up having a few more layers on your nails than you normally would so you just have to increase the drying time a bit.

So- are you a neon lover?  Can you rock some neon nails in the Summer? What about any other time of year?  I hope you're having a great day today so far and that you kick off your Labor Day weekend with a bang!
