Nude to neon manicure

Hi everyone!


Running awfully late for the ABC-Challenge... and basically late in general as it's about an hour past my bedtime but I really wanted to enter my manicure for the letter N so here is my nude-to-neon manicure:

indoors, no flash

I started out by painting my thumb, index and pinky with three thin coats of Cirque Colors Carpe Diem, a bright but not blinding stark white that smells like lavender.

I also painted two thin coats of KIKO 690 Misty Pink on my middle and ring finger. Misty Pink has a matte finish and as most if not all matte polishes it dries really fast so I could start on my gradient almost immediately. I used Misty Pink, Cirque Colors Vitamin D and Cirque Colors Sin City to create a nude to neon gradient. I painted two coats of ILNP My Private Rainbow (L) on top to add a little sparkle (that totally doesn't show up in the photograph so I had to resort to a picture with flash to show it a little better).

I finished by stamping an image from Born Pretty plate BP-L007 using Hit The Bottle Snowed In on my middle finger and a generous coat of Seche Vite to seal everything.

The polishes I used:

Cirque Colors Carpe Diem, KIKO 690 Misty Pink, Cirque Colors Vitamin D, Cirque Colors Sin City,
ILNP My Private Rainbow (L), Hit The Bottle Snowed In

My apologies for another quick post that is way too late. It's been crazy busy again and I'm really looking forward to the weekend where I hope to find some time to relax and do nothing. A bright note: I passed my exam! So at least no more studying for a while :)

    1. Thanks *hugs* All Cirque polishes have added lavender and sage essential oils so when I use them I turn into this weird nails sniffing lady ;)
