Neon Skittle

Today I decided to do a skittle mani with neons. For this I used:
China Glaze – Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
Franken – No 2
China Glaze – Sun Worshiper
Color Club – Poptastic

All the neons are added over a white base. I think a white base is the secret of getting nice neon nails without having a VNL and without adding lots of coats.  I’ve only used two or three coats of the neons in the pictures. The white base makes the neon color pop out more too so I’m going to continue to have a white base for the neons from now on :D

Then I played around with some candy named Non Stop taking different pictures. It was lots of fun doing that and good to eat afterwards!

    It’s good to see white bases making all the difference, definitely the way forward for swatching my neons. Like the candy props!

    What a great excuse to have to eat the candy after touching it ! :). Thanks for the advice on white bases.

    Whoa!! Those are some really fun, bright, eye-popping nails! I can tell you’re really in the mood for summer! Though I don’t have the courage to wear them myself, I love seeing them on others :D

    Jag som inte ätit godis på snart en månad, nu blev jag ju jättesugen!!

    Det där med vitt under neoner ska definitivt provas. Underbara bilder och underbara lack :)

    A Lacquered Affair: Well, I really am in the mood for summer :D And I’m so loving neons right now! You should definitely try neon skittles yourself!

    Helena: Ops, det var inte meningen! Man ska nog hålla sig borta från godis egentligen, inte mycket nyttigt när inte! Men gott :D

    Sminkan: Eller hur? Jag gillade hur naglarna nästan försvann bland godisarna :)

    shannara: Thank you! Nice to see you back :)

    Åh vad snyggt! Det var ju väldigt svårt att hitta igen naglarna bland godisarna! Väldigt rolig och bra matchning :)
