The Nail Challenge Collaborative: June 2017 - Neon

Hey there!  Today I have my third post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative June Neon theme.  I am really loving this theme if you can't already tell.  I hope to get a few more posts in before the end of the month, but I have a busy schedule so we will see!




















I started with a base of one of my favorite neon pink polishes, Zoya Lola!  This color is gorgeous and a great summer color.  It is slightly sheer though so I needed to do four coats. 




















I wanted to just do something simple for this mani and decided just to do some silver stamping.  I used Zoya Trixie and Born Pretty Store BPL-024 plate to create this look.  I thought the paisley design was fun, but not too overwhelming to take away from the pink. 




















I'm also participating in the When Colours Collide challenge which is a bi-weekly challenge where colors are selected and you can only use those for your nail art.  This week's colors were pink and silver so the timing worked out perfectly. 




















I hope you like this look.  What nail art challenges do you participate in?  Have you done any fun neon nail art?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative: June 2017 - Neon

Hey there!  Back again with my second post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative June Neon theme.  You actually get posts from me twice in one week!  For this look I decided to attempt water marbling using three colors from the Pipe Dream Polish A Night In Vegas collection to create this look.  Each photo will contain a bottle shot of one of the polishes used.   . 
 
The colors I used are Light Of Day, All In, and 110 Degrees.  I haven't done a blue, yellow, and orange water marble before and thought these colors would be fun together.  I love how they look even though there are some flaws and imperfections.  



 
It's another fun, summery look.  I especially love how my pinkie nail turned out.  I also like how the blue and yellow combined in a few spots making it look like I used a green as well. 
 
I don't water marble very often since I'm not great at it, but I always love how water marble looks on nails.  I could have added a stamp over it to hide my mistakes, but I loved this look as is.  I hope you like it as well.
 
Have you tried water marbling?  What polishes do you find work the best?

The Nail Challenge Collaborative: June 2017 - Neon

Hey there!  It's been so long since I've done a blog post, but I'm trying to get back into my nail art challenges and to focus more time on doing my nails.  Today I have my first post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative June Neon theme.  It's been 6 months since I've posted for this challenge, and I'm so excited to come back to such a fun theme. 

 
I started with a base of this gorgeous chartreuse neon mystery polish from Pahlish.  This color screams summer to me and is such a fun color.  Pahlish mysteries are just that so you never know what you're going to get, but I'm so happy I got this one.  This is two coats plus Tonic Topper topcoat.  


 


 
I didn't want to take away from this beautiful color so decided just to do some simple stamping and went with a black polish to accentuate the neon yellow.  I used at Rica Blackout with MoYou London Punk 04 plate to create this look. 


I really love how this turned out.  It's simple, but really makes a statement.  It's super fun for summer and would still be on my nails if I could wear nail art at work! 
 
I hope you love this as much as I do.  What nail art designs do you like to do with neon polishes?  I have two more looks that I'll be doing for this challenge, but hopefully more if I have time.
