Neon On Neutral

I have some exciting news to share with you! You may or may not have noticed but last week I purchased my own domain name! This means that you can now visit this blog directly at http://preciouspolish.com! Yay (:

Now for what you came here for: the nails! I'm really into pairing neons with neutrals for spring. The pop of bright colour is so fun (: This design is an adaptation of the popular fishtail manicure. I didn't use the same method for it though so there are less layers of polish, I think. I really like the look on my thumbs especially so I think I'm going to give it another go with some different colours.


To start I used a base of American Apparel California Trooper on all nails. I used a black striping polish to map out the design and filled in the spaces accordingly with China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and China Glaze Liquid Leather. I did the arrow pattern on top of the pick with the black striping polish and did the french tips with the same method.

Have a fantastic work week and see you soon!
