Maybelline Bleached Neons Dry Brushed and Stamped.

Hey Guys!

Happy Saturday! I am glad it is the weekend, although the cooler weather we have been having, I am not on board with yet! I am still not quite ready for fall and today's nails are a testament of that, since they are anything but fall colours! A while back, I mentioned that I had won a giveaway, and there was some really awesome polishes in it. Well one of the prizes was the Maybelline Bleached Neons. Today's post features a few of them!




First things first, although the bleached neons, apply alright, not great but alright, they had a terrible self leveling issue. I gave up after 3 coats. Maybe today wasn't my day, or I have been spoiled to much by awesome to apply polishes,  but either way, I advise super extreme caution when applying these, since they had more then a few hiccups and some of my images show that :l I still love the colours, even if they weren't the most fun to work with though!

To get this look, I started with a base of  Maybelline Day Glow Teal on my pointer, Maybelline Ultra Violet on my thumb (not shown)  and pinky, and Rica Whiteout on my middle and ring fingers. Once that was dry, I did a glitter gradient on my pinky using Loaded Lacquer Fluffy Macaroons, which is a super fun and whimsical glitter.  I then took Day Glow Teal, Ultra Violet, and Citrus Collide and did the dry brush technique over Whiteout, once I was satisfied with the coverage of my dry brush, I top coated to speed up dry time, and then stamped over it, with  MoYou London Princess Plate 14 in Mundo De Unas Peach. I then top coated everything with HK Girl.

I really love how fun and whimsical this is, and even though it is much more suited to spring/summer then fall, I still love it. As I said before, I am totally not ready for fall yet, so I am still squeezing in some spring/summer manis! :P Is anyone else totally not ready for fall yet? Or have you totally embraced everything fall??

Alright guys and gals, I think that covers it all for today! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I am relaxing and trying to soak up some sun. Till next time Kittens! <3
