The Nail Files: Neon + Sparkles

Step One: Paint
 Step Two: Glitter
 Step Three: Top Coat
 Step Four: Nail Partay!!!

Hi there and happy Sunday!

I thought I would start doing occasional posts on something I am slightly majorly obsessed with- NAIL POLISH! I am totally the girl who paints her nails every week (sometimes twice) and I love trying new fun colors, adding glitter, and I am even known to dabble in some nail art here and there (when I have time).

So when my fabulous co-worker Maria got some new Forever 21 polishes sent to her(jealous) and volunteered them to the office gals, you know myself and Carlina jumped at the chance! I chose to go with this fluorescent pink which was just screaming my name. I had also just purchased the Spoiled neon orange (pictured above) and thought they would be so fun together.

To start I painted all my nails the new Forever 21 pink except my ring finger which was painted the orange. Each of these polishes needed three coats to get the saturated effect that I liked. I then used my favorite Forever 21 Love&Beauty glitter to paint just the tips- using two coats to get the nice gradient effent. Then finished it off with my Sally Hansen top coat and Voila!

I hope you enjoyed my first mani post! :-) There will be more in the future!

  1. How fun! I am also a bit of a nail polish addict, and recently did a pastel rainbow mani with each finger a different color. Love neons, too!
