The One With the Lime Green Zebra Print Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Happy Friday!!!!  Finally, the week is over!!!  Who else is ready for the weekend??  I know I am.  Especially because the weather is going to take a turn and be BEAUTIFUL.  We are going to ignore the fact that it's in the 30s today and possibly snow.  We instead are going to look forward to that lovely 68 degree weather they're forecasting.  Sure, I'll get a sinus infection from these temperature fluctuations, but I'll survive.

Since it's going to be in the 30s today and I'm craving warmer weather, it's only fitting that I share a bright, neon manicure.  Last week (or maybe it was the week before) I received the ORLY Summer collection since I signed up for the ORLY color pass.  The collection consists of 6 gorgeous neon shades which I have yet to play with.  After seeing them, I decided to revisit some of my old neons before focusing on them.

As we know, China Glaze has some of the best neons out there.  I decided to use Lime After Lime and do a fun zebra design since I haven't done one in a loooong time.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Lime After Lime
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ILNP - Mega X
I was absolutely in love with this manicure.  Originally when I painted on my white base, I wasn't going to sponge Lime After Lime on, but I'm super happy I did.  Years ago I did a similar zebra design using a pink polish and loved how I lightly sponged the color on the white.  I could have done a gradient, but I think I prefer this look.

Mega X by ILNP is one of my all time favorite silver holos.  Me and my silver holo accents.  How can you go wrong though?  The holo effect is so strong in natural light and in room light.  I need to purchase some back up bottles of this.  A little expensive, but well worth the price.

Lime After Lime is a gorgeous neon green.  Two coats and full coverage.  It isn't patchy, dries semi glossy.  I added a top coat to make it fully glossed.  I think this is my favorite neon green polish.  I honestly forgot that I purchased this last year and am upset that I didn't get back ups.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Fan of Mega X or Lime After Lime??

Until next time, <3.
