Neon Nails - Mani Monday

Starting the week off with a bang with this bright manicure. My sister Emma and I had a really fun movie night this weekend! We watched some great animated classics from our childhood and did each others nails. It seems that 1995 was the year of all of our favorite movies: The Thief and the Cobbler, Pocahontas, The Pebble and the Penguin, and The Swan Princess. 

I'm not a fan of bare nails and some polish, so I did a quick coat of Sally Hansen 'Shall We Dance'. It's a pretty ballet pink from the Complete Salon Manicure line, so I skipped a base coat.

Once the nails were super, super dry, we used scotch tape to make diagonal shapes along the nail. One coat of Milani 'Pink Hottie' was plenty to give the bright pink color I was looking for. Once it was dry I peeled off the tape, and there you have it!

 I wasn't a my house, so theses pics are pre-top coat, but I suggest adding one to smooth out the lines and give more longevity to your manicure. I truly love the look of pairing a neon color with a neutral, whether its clothes, shoes, makeup, or nails.
