Time for some neon!

I had no idea what to try today, other than bright. A friend suggested neons, so here it is! I don't have many neons, but I've been reading about how putting it over a white base helps it to really pop. It is really bright, lol!



This is multiple coats of Essie Bazooka, the neon orange from their Poppy-razzi collection, and a nameless neon yellow from Stripe Rite striping pens. I do not like these striping pens. I bought a few because they were on clearance for $1.99 but what a pain in the butt! Thick formula, the brush is way to long and curved (Curved?!). So I ended up setting the cap aside and using my very fine nail paint brush. I'm not about to post a pic of my right hand-obviously, being ambidextrous does not extend to finely detailed work. I was about halfway through when it occurred to me this is similar to the tuxedo manicure. Minus the bow tie though.
