Neon Manicure with FingerPaints Think Outside the Box


Happy Saturday polished world!  How are you all today?  I hope your first day of Spring was awesome and you have some warmer weather where you are.  I would love to say that we are experiencing some Spring like weather here, but we are most certainly not.  It snowed a good portion of the day yesterday, but at least it melted.  All we really have left are those dirty and disgusting snow mounds.  Nothing is grosser than black snow.

Anywho, today I am sharing a manicure I did a few weeks ago when I was really getting annoyed with winter.  I decided to bust out some neon polishes and pretend that it was summer time.  Plus, I got an awesome new black and white matte glitter polish I had been dying to use, and these types of glitter toppers look amazing against neons.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Salon Perfect - Tickled Pink
  • Salon Perfect - Flamingo Flair
  • FingerPaints - Patent Black
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache
  • FingerPaints - Think Outside the Box
So much neon that my camera freaked out a tad!  I won 12 bottles of Salon Perfect neon polishes last year during a #NailGlossip twitter chat, and they are such a great prize!  I cannot wait to start using all them again!  Especially for gradients because I truly believe that neon polishes are the best to use when it comes to creating them!

Think Outside the Box by FingerPaints is an awesome black and white matte glitter topper.  There are numerous sized glitters, some even larger than what I put onto my nail.  I applied one, yes one, coat to my index and pinkie finger and got complete coverage.  You can see how there literally are micro to large mixed in with those black bar glitters.  My only suggestion to FingerPaints would be to lessen up on the bar glitter, but that's a personal preference thing because I am not a huge fan of that shape.



See, the amount of bar glitter was heavier on the index versus the pinkie.  If you go with a lighter hand you can leave some of the bars on the brush.  Overall, it is great.

What do you think of the manicure?  Does it remind you of summer?  Does it make you crave summer??

Think Outside the Box is one of FingerPaints new polishes which is part of their permanent line, and is available now at Sally Beauty Supply stores.

The Salon Perfects I believe are available still at Walmart.  Some of the colors are identical to China Glaze core neons so you should be able to snag them either way.  Flamingo Flair is very similar to ChG Flip Flop Fantasy, and Tickled Pink I believe is similar to Shocking Pink.  I don't own the pink ChG so I can't be positive, but that's the color that pops into my head when I think of this Salon Perfect.  Don't you just love that China Glaze bottles their polishes and sells them cheaper in the Salon Perfect line?

Until next time, <3.
