Alphabet Challenge: N is for... Nein! Neon-Dotted Tips

Good day, my friends! On this nice Sunday afternoon I have some N-inspired nails for you:

Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine, you can put dots on top of me

I just love neons in the summer :D Let's break it down!

The tips are OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! -- the bottle you see in the pic. Nice creamy dark grey, in which some say they swear they can see green tones. I can't... maybe my bottle is defective, or perhaps my brain is. Either way it's a nice grey, and two coats covered the tips quite well.

The neons I used for the dots are Sinful Colors Irish Green and Neon Melon (yellow), and China Glaze Shocking Pink (Neon). I used two sizes of dotting tool to create this look, putting down white dots first to make the neon pop against the dark background. I also used my black striper to line the tips, neatening them up--plus I liked the contrast; it makes it easy to see that the tips themselves are grey rather than black.

Finally, topcoated with NYC Matte Me Crazy. This is a bit less matte than some of the others I've seen... it's almost a wax-finish, which suits me fine. The other wax-finish topcoats I've looked at were fairly expensive, and this was $2.99! So I'll take it in a heartbeat.

Claw hands! Another pose with the bottle.

And one in the sun, which really shows off how bright the neons were compared to the rest :D

Neons make me look tan! *pose*

That's all for now, folks. I stayed away from holographics for a whole post! Next time we won't be so lucky... muahaha, I shall assault you with rainbows again :D see you then! xoxo
