Before & After: Mesh neon gradient

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


Why, why, why do neons freak out cameras? Why is it so difficult to get full neon awesomeness recorded for posterity?? Sigh...

For today's manicure I wanted to do something bright and fun and happy...summer neons will be on their way out soon, and form some reason I just felt that bite from the neon bug.

I pulled out some of my old standby China Glaze Neons, Surfin' For Boys, Beach Cruise-R, and Surreal Appeal (not a neon), and made a gradient with them:

Then I picked a fun pattern from Messy Mansion's Symetrika 05 to stamp them with, and used Sally Hansen Lightning for my stamping polish:

This is pretty in the pics, but so much more bright and neon-y in person! I love how the pinks and oranges and yellows all play off of each other--I totally want a bikini like this. Oh, and, the sexy body to go in that bikini...;-)


Happy stamping!
