I love the look of neon for Summer. It looks so bright, fresh and fun, perfect for the beach or a Summer pool party! One of my favourite combinations is white and neon nail art, every time I have this colour combo on I can't stop staring at my nails it's THAT gorgeous and eye-catching. I was lucky enough to get to try out these neon nail studs from Born Pretty, so I decided to try them on a white base. The white gives a clean backdrop for the neon to really pop and looks amazing against tanned Summer skin (do you think I said 'Summer' enough yet?).
The nail studs come in 6 different eye-popping colours and 2 shapes, circles and stars. I really love the look of these and will definitely be using them a lot this Summer! They are slightly raised, but sit flat on the nail and are perfectly sealed with one coat of top coat. They stayed put for 5 days until I got twitchy and picked them off =_=;; I have that problem with anything that isn't completely smooth on my nails. One thing I did notice is if I didn't do a thick coat of top coat, the nail stud's color scraped off a little if I knocked it against something. On one of my nails I hadn't done a very thick coat, so it got a little scrape on the stud which showed through silver. The other studs on the rest of my nails were perfectly fine though.
For this manicure I did 3 coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White on all nails except my ring finger, which had 3 coats of ORLY Mayhem Mentality. I then used Kiss Nail Art Paint Beach Purple to paint the triangle on my ring finger and topped it all off with the Born Pretty studs. I did a thick coat of top coat and was done! This is one of my favourite manis to date, and SO bright that even my dad noticed my nails when we were Skyping. I think I'll be using the white/neon combo a lot throughout Summer and possibly even into Fall if I can get away with it :p
