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.

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
