My favorite manicure this summer...so far!

I SERIOUSLY hated taking this one off! I loved it so much, I'm contemplating doing it again...LOL!










































LOVED THIS!!

It was super easy too, I did three coats of China Glaze "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" on one half and 3 coats of China Glaze "Towel Boy Toy" on the other.  Let them dry and then I slapped OPI "Navy Shatter" on top, and topped with my usual 2 coats of top coat.

That's it!














There were some parts where the 2 base colors overlapped, and that created this really cool green/ aqua color.














I also played with the idea of alternating the colors on each nail, just to keep things interesting :) Do you like?



























Next time I'll do a base of white under the neon's, to really make them pop! :);)

Happy Friday!
Pin It!

I like this! It reminds me of Monster Energy drink for some reason.
I bet it would look extra fab with some white stuff underneath. n_n

That is absolutely gorgeous! I can see why you didn't want to remove it :)

LOVE! I think I might have to try this, but with CC Electro Candy since I don't have the ChG neons. WIN!!

this looks super pretty. it looks like you used black shatter over the yellow though. i was shocked when you said you used navy shatter.
