I have the second manicure of week 2 of the Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge to share with you guys today! I already showed you my Peculiar Inspiration manicure as the other challenge of this week, so I have the Neon challenge left. Here's what I came up with for this one:
I have had this one neon and glitter manicure pinned in my Nail Art Inspiration Pinterest board for quite a while and I have been wanting to try it myself for so long. The manicure was made by the very talented just1nail and I did my manicure quite similarly though with a bit different polishes and colors.
So first I started this manicure with three thin coats of China Glaze I'm Not Lion and I also applied couple coats of top coat over it to make it smooth. After it was all dry I taped my middle and ring finger nails with single chevron NailVinyls and then I did the gradient with Essie Sand Tropez and China Glaze Japanese Koi. I did one neon gradient manicure with these two polishes a while ago and I really loved that color combo so I thought it would be also perfect for these challenge nails with the addition of I'm Not Lion.
I really really liked this manicure, I thought it looked so much fun and the combo of sparkling glitter, neon and nude looks really great together! I should definitely wear I'm Not Lion more often too, it's just such a gorgeous polish! I thought these nails were also perfect for cheering up my mood since the weather hasn't been too perfect here in this past week. I did already priefly turn to some more fall appropriate colors, but somehow I feel like these neons suit better for this dark and rainy weather. Maybe though I will try to move towards more fall colors in my next manicures, at least next week we do have a fall manicure task in the challenge.
