Hi everyone! It's Thursday, and a GREAT one at that! My last class of the day was cancelled, and I don't have to work today because I'm going to a concert tonight! Yup, another country concert.. I've gone to at least thirteen this year. Definitely my guilty pleasure (besides nail polish...).

I wanted to do a sort of... closure manicure. Closure of the end of summer. The last full out neon manicure before they sit in my melmers until next spring/summer. Not that I strictly follow color/season rules but I like wearing darker colors in the fall and winter. Here's what I came up with.


I used Nina Ultra Pro Solar Flare and China Glaze Pool Party. I have a serious weakness for China Glaze neons.. they are just beautiful! This manicure didn't photograph too well. I personally like how it looks in person better. I used Konad stamp m57, which had both a zebra and a cheetah print stamp. I used Fingerpaints Black Expressionism to stamp. This manicure is so much fun. I actually really like the yellow. I layered two coats of each polish over two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. Using white for a base under neons makes them really really bright, as you can see above.

What do you think? 


  1. Wow, this is so beautiful and bright!!! And I have such a weakness for CG neons too!!! Can't get enough of them, especially this years collection!!

  2. soo so cute. adore neon animal print manis!

  3. OOoh i love this look! very cute!

    i just started my own blog if you would like to check it out!

  4. I'm kind of sad to say goodbye to neons.. Love this mani.. Neon & animal print are one of my favorites :)

  5. Cannot have enough live music in our lives in my book! Going to hear a group play locally tonight one of 'those' Americana labeled groups which what the heck really is Americana? Was Roots-Rock not a good label? Seems Americana has singer-songwriters, roots, country, blue-grass and about 15 other generas lumped in there - but they got a classification out of the Grammy Awards which has been cutting out generas to recognize. Nice job here on mutli animal prints.


Thank you for your kind words! I read every single comment and I love hearing from my readers. I will comment back on your blog if you have one; I love making new blogging friends! Have a great day!
