Neon Gradient.. Splattered!

I got the idea for this gradient mani with splatter activity over HERE - I originally wanted to copy her awesome colour choices, but then I glanced over and saw my newly beloved neon polish blaring at my retinas, and I knew what I had to do.

I started with a coat of Orly White Out as a base for my neons.. Then I think I used 3-4 thin coats of Essie Action, and waited for that all to dry. Then I just sponged on some Essie Lights.. THEN I globbed some Orly White Out on my ever-handy paper, dipped my trusty straw in and attempted to splatter up my nails. I still haven't mastered this technique, but I will. It is my new life mission. I may or may not be joking.


I'm going to say that this orange is absolutely AH-MAY-ZING! It is exceptionally bright.. I actually got some nail mail earlier.. And that had a neon polish within it.. and it is searingly gorgeous. I cannot wait to share that sweet gem with you all!

I hope everyone is having a great Friday! I will be back with something for all of you again very soon!!

I love the splatter effect! I want to try it but, the mess keeps me away for some reason! heheh When I saw the thumbnail, I actually thought you, somehow, did a gradient using pink and orange crackle polishes over a white base! LOL

Thank you all - I quite like them.. So bold and in-your-face!

Ooh and @kellie: You should try it! I am all for the mess and anarchy, but you could tape around your nails and such - waaay less cleanup that way! And just remember to use some newspaper/paper and all should be well. And your adorable bunny icon is breaking my heart and making me incredibly happy, all at the same time! Actually, now that you mention it, it does kind of look like that! I like it - though I bet that would be insanely difficult to do (:

Awh I am so glad you did these! They look so pretty! I love neon splatters honestly! It looks killer with black splats!
haha I use a poster board when I am doing nail art so mess stays on there. Tape helps load with clean up, and if you don't have tape Vaseline will do the job just as well.

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
