I liked the pink and green St. Patty's stamping mani I did for Pink Wednesday and as I was looking at it, it hit me! Neon! It would look awesome in neon. Now I didn't want to completely copy my previous mani so I opted to paint the Irish flag on my thumb and ring finger and then used to color for that on the other three fingers. Green on pinky, white on middle, and orange on index. First I painted all my nails with two coats of my base coats franken (does any one else fraknen their nail treatments?), then two coats of Orly Au Champagne.
Here's what I used for the orange on my index finger and in the flags I used one coat of Color Club Wham! Pow! toppped with one coat of Fantasy Makers Creepy Pumpkin then one coat of Seche Vite.
For the green on my pinky and in the flags I used one coat of Cosmetic Arts unnamed neon green (might be the same as Color Club The Lime Starts Here but not sure since I don't own that one). Topped with one coat of Jesse's Girl Firefly (I know it looks white in the bottle but over this green you really only see the green flash of the glitter) and topped again with one coat of Seche Vite.For the white on my middle finger and in the flag I used one coat of Sinful Colors Smoking Hot over the already there 2 coats of Orly Au Champagne. Topped with one coat of Seche Vite.
|Obviously before clean-up. LOL!|
I then proceeded to stamp over this once dry with Color Club Wham! Pow! and Cosmetic Arts neon green using the plaid design from m60. The rest of the stamps are using Konad special polish in black using RA-116, SH12, and BM-03. I wish that the plaid had come out a bit brighter but I still love this mani. I think I will sport this one for the day and try to post some more tonight.
Hope you enjoyed this one! Much Love, The Dragon Lady
