BFF Challenge: Neon!!

Kerrie's second theme for this week of the BFF Challenge is NEON! I love neon, but they're such a pain to photograph. Ah well, this mani is super fun and I really like it. Let's get into it!

I did two coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, a coat of SV, then taped it off and did some off-center neon portions. So far I've been using my Orly neons as my go-to neons this summer, but my China Glaze neons looked lonely! So I did some rainbow-y skittles. From pointer to pinkie, the taped neon portions are Surfin' for Boys, Orange You Hot?, Sun-Kissed, and I'm With the Lifeguard. I dabbled one coat of Dollish Polish Puttin' on the Ritz on top and did a final coat of SV. In person the white glitter stands out over the white creme portion more, and it looks really cool.

These nails remind me of collars on dalmation dogs - like 101 Dalmations! Which is wonderful and cute because it relates to Kerrie's other theme, animals. The orange neon on my middle finger seriously reminds me of delicious Cheetos dust, too. Before I take these off I will probably snap some extra pictures because I don't 100% love the ones I took.

Don't forget to check out the other neon nails for today's challenge!
