Neon & nude roses!

Hay guys! Okay, so I wore those nails based on that dress for seriously only a day short of a week, which is officially the longest I think I've ever worn any nail art. I mean I liked it a lot, but it was more that I just hadn't had time to change it (as usual). So last night I went out with a friend and got home a little late but I was just like, okay Whitney, it's time. Saddle up and change your nails. This is getting ridiculous.


I wanted to do something that wouldn't be too time-consuming and I've also been wanting to do something with neon and nude together for a really long time, and the desire was even stronger because I had an untried neon pink AND an untried neutral sitting on my shelf. This is basically unheard of because these are 2 of my favorite color types right now, so I usually have to use them as soon as I buy them.


These nails are loosely based off this flowery manicure that I did a couple months back and really liked. That one was easy to execute even with a bunch of colors, so I knew it would probably require the short time commitment I wanted last night if I did it in just 2 colors.


I think these little flowers are pretty cute, and they seriously could not be easier to do. All I did was blob color on using the polish brush and then use a black striping polish to draw some rose-looking curvy lines around and inside the blobs. This is another one of those manicures that's really fun and easy to do because it's not supposed to be perfect!


The neon pink is Orly - Beach Cruiser, and it's seriously my favorite neon pink EVER (and this is coming from someone who definitely owns too many neon pinks for one person because I LOVE THEM I CAN'T HELP IT). It's SO bright in person, has a super easy application, and is the perfect shade of pink - not too red and not too blue. I'm in love. The neutral is OPI - Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? and I super like it too. It's got a nice formula and the color is so pretty. I love the OPI brush more than anything, I always have to do the least cleanup when I use that brush.

Alright, that's all for today! See you guys tomorrow!

    1. Thanks girl! I really like alternating colors of a design on accent nails... I think it keeps it kinda simple while making it more visually interesting :)
