Perfect Neon Blue Polish: Cirque Rehab

Perfect Neon Blue Polish: Cirque Rehab

I realised recently that I didn’t have a good neon blue polish. In fact I didn’t have a true neon blue polish at all.  Some of them were bright, but there was nothing that glows under UV light, which is the sign of a true neon. I asked around forums and groups for recommendations, but came across Cirque Rehab which it turns out is my Perfect Neon Blue Polish.

Frank Stella nail art Monochrome Lines

Fabiana set this art-inspired challenge on NailArtNation this week, and she definitely had me in mind! His artwork is a mixture of colour and monochrome pieces, and I loved the monochrome line work, which had an almost op-art quality about it. I’d like to present my Frank Stella nail art!

Neon Watermarble Starburst Success

After my woeful attempt at watermarbling with my pastel neons (you can click on that if you want to feel better about your own skills) I decided that I needed some neon polishes that were suitable for the job.  I shopped around, and with the able assistance of my US-based polish mule, I got my digits on the Fun Days and Neon Craze collection from In The Name of Polish.  I had to start with a Neon Watermarble Starburst to test them out.

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it.  It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design.  I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines. Read More

Neon Pastel Rainbow Easy Nail Art

After my semi-fail of a pastel neon watermarble, I couldn’t face trying to achieve anything half-decent on my right hand.  I had to wear this for a couple of days, so I used the same polishes plus some holo top coat to create this blurry, Pastel Rainbow effect. Read More

Pastel Neon Watermarble Wednesday

Since I’ve joined apolishedcolleen’s July Watermarble challenge, there was no way I could avoid a neon design. Since we’ve already established I don’t have any true neon polishes that cooperate, I decided to try a Pastel Neon Watermarble. Read More

Peacock Feather

I had a bit of a mani disaster and needed something easy to cover my nails with. I’d already started with a white base so I decided to use a set of Peacock Feather water decals from Milv. I picked these up at the Professional Beauty show in London earlier this year.  Read More
