Worker Bee nail art for Manchester stamping decals

The events in Manchester last week really shocked me. The audience for an Ariana Grande concert are young people and children, their parents, so it felt particularly callous to me.  It’s part of my job to react and deal publicly with these sort of things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a serving police officer or anything, but I did spend the whole day working on reacting professionally to the bombing, so when I got home all the emotions got to me at once.   I decided to add a Worker Bee for Manchester to my nails, to show my respect and support in my own way.

Danger High Voltage Electric Nail Art with Superchic Lacquer Pheromone

Superchic Lacquer is a new brand to Rainbow Connection (where Annette helpfully enables my polish addiction) and Pheromone is a stand out colour for me. It’s a very bright, chartreuse-leaning yellow holographic.   I decided to create some Electric Nail Art to match the bright colour.

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.
