happy monday! hope you had a great weekend... it seems like there's never enough time to do all the fun things i want to do (even if it's just taking a nap or reading a book), but i won't complain... :D
it's summertime! that means NEON everything... you want to make sure that you stand out and make a statement. what better way to do that than sport some neon colored nails!
i turned to my Pinterest boards for inspiration on this one, and i have the original idea starter and photo credit below my finished manicure.
i picked "Pool Party" by China Glaze for this one... it's such a great bright pink, and it's really easy to apply. I wanted to make sure that i had a mani that would work with the cute Old Navy shirt i bought (one of those $10 tees they have during summertime--uber comfy and uber cute!)
now, when i removed my old polish, i actually had some staining/ yellowing of my nails, and i knew i had to apply a nice blush pink as a base for my funky french manicure. i used Essie's "Ballet Slippers" for that base (a few coats and i was covered) that i got from my sister--what a sweetie! it's the perfect color for the base on any french tip you want to do, even if you're going neon! :D

and this is the photo i looked at to start... you can see that i don't have the same bow image for Konad stamping (mine was the M3 plate) from amazon.com, but i think that the effect was awesome all the same.
so let me know what you think! thanks for checking in!
