CC Tangerine Scream :D ★★★★★

Good morning everyone!!

Today I have another one of the Color Club shimmery neons to show you. Tangerine Scream is a fabulous orange neon with aqua shimmer that has now become my all-time favorite orange!! It will also be making its entrance into my running top 20 as soon as I figure out which color it will be replacing :D This is 3 thin coats topped with Out the Door.

And as if the color itself wasn't awesome enough, I had to add some subtle Konad on top ;) I decided to go with plate M73 and the Konad Psyche Pink polish so as not to detract too much from the base color.

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

Nubar Mellow Yellow ★★★☆☆

Good evening everyone!

Another one of my recent manis, this time not as successful... Nubar Mellow Yellow is a super pretty canary yellow, but I really dislike the finish which is a little bit frosty. I didn't really have any problems with brush strokes, but I just don't tend to like frosts :/ I'm most likely in the minority on this though so this color should appeal to a lot of you!

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

ChG Custom Kicks :D ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Good evening everyone!!

Here is another of my recent NOTDs, China Glaze Custom Kicks. It's a very pretty and summery turquoise with greenish shimmer that applies very well :D I would actually prefer it without the shimmer, but it is still pretty awesome and will appeal to shimmer lovers among you!! The color is greener in real life than in the pic, but I couldn't get any closer.

And of course I added some Konad on the second day, using plate M70 and the special white polish :D

Enjoy and have a great night! :D

Misa Sandals, Flip Flops, and Hip Hop :D ★★★★★

Good morning everyone!

Here is another of my recent NOTD, Misa Sandals, Flip Flops, and Hip Hop, another one from the Misa neon collection :) This one is a hot pink neon that is just slightly jellyish with a glossy top coat, and it just pops on my skin! Unfortunately, neon pinks are always very hard to photograph accurately, so all I have is my KOTD pic taken in indirect light which looks closer, but definitely not as bright. I used Konad special polish in Black Chrome with the leopard pattern from plate M57 :)

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

GOSH Wild Lilac :) ★★★★★

Good evening everyone!!

Here's a very nice lilac creme from the GOSH spring/summer (?) line :) It applied beautifully in only 2 coats, and pops just enough on my neutral-warm skin!

And this was my Easter mani: a cute flower pattern from image plate M74 in Nubar Baby Pink :)

Enjoy and have a great evening!!

CC Volt Of Light :D ★★★★★

Good afternoon everyone!!

Today for you I have one of the colors from the latest Color Club neon collection! Volt Of Light is an amazing highlighter yellow, but with a surprise aqua shimmer! It's just fabulous :D It applies pretty well, but as with other neon yellow, it does need more than 3 coats to obtain bottle color, which is why I used 2 coats of VOL over 2 thin coats of white.

And of course I had to add some Konad to it, so I chose a full nail design from plate M73 and China Glaze Adore :)

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

LA Girl Flare Tropical :D ★★★★★

Good evening everyone!!

Here's one of last week's NOTD, LA Girl Flare Tropical. In real life it is a fabulous green turquoise neon creme and just looks awesome on my neutral-warm skin! It also only took me 2 coats to get perfect coverage :D This pic is actually a swatch from last summer ;)

Enjoy! :D

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

Nubar Hot Lime Green :D ★★★★☆

Good afternoon everyone!

I've just finished moving into my new apartment! Just 5-6 boxes left to unpack and everything will be settled :D Anyways, here's a mani I did earlier in March, Nubar Hot Lime Green. Honestly, I don't think it is the best green on my skin tone, but yet I really like it!! It's just like the name says, an almost neon lime green :) Here's 3 very thin coats under artificial daylight.

Hope you enjoy!! :D
