Neon Splash Abstract Design

WOOHOO!!! Summer is here and School is OUT!!!!! (And I haven't posted in 3 months...) Wonderful... But I promise to make it up to you with lots of posts this summer :)

So today's post is inspired by one of the first designs I did, found here. I loved that toe design so much, I decided to change it up for a manicure.

 I love the look of these three polishes together, and it's a perfect mani for summer!!! Unfortunately, the weather here in Maryland is overcast, so the photos don't even quite capture the brilliance of the sparkly pink background.
 This design is so cute, and so simple to emulate!!!! Really, all I did was use some nail art polishes (the green and blue) to add some stripey lines. It took not even fifteen minutes, but turns out really well.

I really loved the way my thumb turned out, and you can somewhat see it blurred above...
 This shows a head-on view of most of the nails. As you can see, there's no real pattern, but that's what makes it unique and one-of-a-kind. :)
 Now this is how my other hand turned out. It's not as great (still learning how to paint with my right hand better :), but still came out nicely. This is one manicure that is really great to practice using your non-dominant hand with. It's very forgiving, and since there's no uniform pattern, you "can't mess up"!!! How great is that?
And here's a final parting shot of my left hand. I tried to get more creative with my poses... What do you think?

Thanks for reading, and feel free to leave thoughts and ideas below in the comments!! :)

Polishes Used:

  • Color Fever Petites: Raspberry Ice (this was a couple dollars at the local pharmacy, but is such a gorgeous color!!!)
  • Sinful Colors Nail Art: Sour Apple and Hey Dear! (these brushes are wonderful for freehand designs)
:) Trendy T :)
