Neon KOTD and POTD

By  | 

Today I have a creme neon green for you. It’s from LCN and the shade name is Neon 9. I’ve had this one in my stash for quite some time now, but I was a bit afraid of putting it on. I thought it would be too sheer and it wouldn’t go with my skin tone. I was partly right. It is sheer, but not as much as I feared. However, I was totally wrong about clashing with my skin tone. I think it looks nice on me.

LCN - Neon 9Because I knew I was going to sponge over the tips, I didn’t care for the sheerness. I used OPI‘s Go On Green! for the sponging part.


The tips looked like they were frozen. Cool effect!

Next I added some Konad. I used IP m24.

Sponge + Konad

I used Avon‘s Silver Foil nail polish for stamping. What do you think? Did I overdo it? I mean, I can’t decide whether I liked it better only sponged or konaded. :think:

Next I have neon orange pedicure for you. I’m very shy with my toes, but I decided to show them to you anyway…

Gabrini - 374

And I love those Ipanemas! I’ve had them for three years now and I wear them all the time in the summer. And they are still in very good condition.

I'm also on: Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest. My e-mail: maestra(at)parokeets(dot)com

    :cool: That is a gorgeous green on you. I like the sponging effect. It’s really a cool technique. I also love the Konad on top also. Very pretty manicure. The green polish does look really nice with your skin color. Don’t be shy about your toes! They look cute with the neon orange. The sandals are also fantastic looking.

    Thank to both! :rose:

    bubbles, I really don’t know when I’m going to do a tutorial on sponge technique. But I can tell it’s very very simple. Just use any sponge you have left (I used the one used in the kitchen  :wink: ), apply small amount of polish on it and sponge your nail with it.

    awesomevegan, what ended on your nails? Oh yes, practice makes perfect! :biggrin:
