Glowsticks & Glitter

Hello! It's getting warmer here, and with spring comes hay fever. I've been feeling under the weather, so sorry for the long time between posts. But in celebration of the sunshine, and to cheer myself up, I've been wearing neon nails, plus my new Born Pretty Store bows!

So simple, yet so fun! Click the jump for the details!

I started with the best highlighter-yellow polish around, Orly Glowstick. Two coats over a white base, which makes the neon really pop :D

The black and white glitter is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear #510 Strobe Flash. I used two coats, dabbing and placing to get them where I wanted. It spreads easily enough, but I'm fussy about the distribution of the big glitters. It's easy to move them around with the brush, which has clear bristles, so it's easy to see all the bits--even the tiny black ones that would be lost on a typical black brush! Finally, two coats of Seche Vite sealed in all the glitters and left a smooth finish.

As I mentioned earlier, my latest order from Born Pretty Store arrived, and I just had to incorporate some of my new goodies into this mani :D  Among other things, I got three colours of these little plastic bow embellishments:

So as you can see, I added a black one to my ring fingernail with a dot of nail glue. It matches this cute black bow ring, which also came from BPS.

These are so awesome! I just love bright neons. I wore these tonight with some coordinating earrings--long black chains with multicoloured neon stars :D
