Clean Palette

I was challenged to do a neutral themed mani and this is what I came up with.  I used ORLY Gilded Coral over Zoya Jacqueline, using a nail stencil from @whatsupnails .  I couple rotten eggs hung on when I peeled them off, but then I figured I'd break up the monotony of the mani with a few blank spots. Well, surprise! They hung onto my nails as I peeled off the stencil!  I was going to peel them off with tweezers but decided it gave an almost geek-sheek look to the mani so I kept them.

I love using Jacqueline. I think of my mother every time I use it <3 It's been nearly two years since she lost her battle with cancer and I still think of her often. She found me a 1927 penny the other day.  That's pretty cool.

Colors by Llarowe 'Blonde Ambition'

Here is the bombshell, CbL 'Blonde Ambition'. The holo is strong on this one. So so strong. Stronger than the force.

Why thank you Panera, for some lovely holo lighting. The flame is just ridiculous.

Then I added a little Cbl 'Vincent' to the party. Ignore my pinky and it's stupid, non-loyal, patch.

ILNP 'Electric Carnival'

Don't know how I went so long without I Love Nail Polish's flakies....But I'm going to need more. Lots more.

Here it is over Dance Legend 'Waswowski'.

And it was so pretty over OPI 'I Sing in Color' that I'm going to share even with the sheet mark.

Shinespark 80's Gradient with M Polish Metallic

I did a sponged on gradient with Shinespark's 80's Neon Creams (which turned out beautifully if I do say so myself).

Then I topped them off with 'Iron' from the M Polish Metallic collection (using Pet'la 'The Perfect One' plate).

Dance Legend Sulley

This is my swatch of Dance Legend Chameleon Collection 'Sulley' 069.

With a little added nail art. Haha, #MyNailsAndMyCorolla .  The natural light was just playing so nice with this polish.

And last but not least, a short clip showing the redic shift on this polish. This is probably my favorite of the entire Chameleon Collection (excuse the gym shoes and background music).

Shinespark 90's Kids Collection.

Here are my swatches for the Shinespark 90's kids collection.  They are neon jellies, swatched with two fingers having a white undie, and two without. They also leadlight like a dream for you stampers out there.

There are so many fun things you can do with these jellies. This is the pink mani I shared with you last week. I  simply used OPI Liquid Sand 'Solitaire' as a base, then applied a layer of jelly and, bam! Textured neon nails! (I also added a coat of Barry M glitter on this one).

Individual swatches of the neon jellies will be highlighted at later dates on the blog so be sure to check back! But for now, if you're wondering if you need the whole set, you do!
