Leap Day Mani!
Happy Leap Day!! In honor of this extra day, I'm giving you all an extra mani! (Like one mani doubles as the base for another, sort of thing.) Okay, so I recently bought Sinful Colors' neon pink #920 and I was SO excited to finally find a neon that I liked! (The other "neons" that I found before just weren't that bright and, well, neon.) I did two coats of it and it was totally solid. Also, it dries somewhat matte, so that's good if you're into that. (I prefer shiny.) Anyways, I couldn't deal with just plain neon on my nails, so I did one coat of China Glaze's Fairy Dust... it sparkles so much! So I left it that way for like a day, but it was still too neony for me (I know, I'm ridiculous), so I decided to pair it with Ulta's Smoke Screen. I taped my pieces of tape diagonally across each nail, did one coat of the charcoal, let it dry, then did a second coat and peeled off the tape right after I applied the second coat. (I waited to remove the tape after the second coat on one nail and it got too gunky and just made it gross and uneven.) Did one coat of my top coat to seal it all and done! It might sound complicated, but it truly isn't. I got several compliments on them, with one girl even saying she was going to do them the same! Hope you all enjoyed your extra day!
