#nailartmay Day 7: Neon

Hi there,

I am a couple days late for this post. Today's theme is neon. I love doing neons as you can see in a lot of my posts. I wanted to do something different today and I'm not sure how I feel as to how these came out. They are a little psychedelic which is the look I was going for. These are definitely NOT a pretty design.

I Used Sally Hansen "White On" and neon acrylic paint for this design.

Color Blocking

I went for it and submitted into the Sally Hansen "I Heart Nail Art Contest for May". I entered on the last day and this is what I came up with...

It is similar to my  post here. With this design I used more colors. I wanted to use a color theme for each nail, It came out OK. I wish my lines were cleaner. i probably shouldn't drink coffee before I paint my nails. Oh well. These were fun to wear. I used a thin nail art brush to paint the squares with the polish and then I outlines them with black acrylic paint. I used some Sally Hansen Xtreme wear polishes and some other polishes.

#nailartmay Day 4 "Star Wars"

Hello Hello,

Today's nail challenge is Star Wars. Unfortunately I am not a big fan. I have seen only one of the movies all the way through once. They're cool, just not my thing. Anyways, after searching online for about an hour at pictures I finally found what I was looking for.

These little guys were so cute and exactly what I wanted. I was originally going to pick 5 characters but, when I saw these it had exactly 10. How perfect is that?

So here they are...

These were only so hard to do because I has to do something so different for each of my 10 nails. I used a long nail art brush, dotting tool, small nail art brush, polish and acrylic paint.
I am so happy with how these came out. It was just how I envisioned it.
I would list the polishes I used but, there were too many. I hope you like :)

Yes I'm going to do this! I need some inspiration to keep posting and this is going to give me that extra push.

Today is day 1 and the theme is "flowers". I'm glad because I've been in a floral mood since it's spring time!

I've had this floral design in my head for a while so I decided to use it for today's challenge. The flowers are suppose to be blotches of paint with the messy outline of flowers.I originally wanted to use a white background and at the last minute used a grey. I think that it would have looked better with the white. I will have to try that out next time. maybe with some neon colors.

As for my liking on this I say "Eh" . They cam out OK. Not exactly how envisioned them. Oh Well. I know the neons will be way better.

Colors I used:

OPI "Oh Waiter"
Sally Hansen "Mellow Yellow"
Charming Charlie "Such a Peach"& "Lovely in Lilac"
Essie "First time"
Orly "White Tips"
