I haven’t had a chance to blog over the last fortnight because my health has taken a turn for the worse. You can read about what I got through on my sick days in my previous post A Day In The Life Of Lyme.
Yesterday was my birthday. I was dreading my birthday because on my 18th birthday I had hoped for a healthy 21st, and then on my 21st I hoped for a healthy 25th. So my 25th certainly wasn’t healthy but I enjoyed the day thanks to my family. I even got to do my nails, well one hand anyway. Today I was able to do the other hand and add to the mani. I really love the end product. Be prepared for lots of photos because neon’s are so hard to capture.

Then I decided to use four China Glaze neon’s from the Sunsational collection for a dry brush mani. The four colours I used are Bottoms Up, Neon On & On, Sun Of A Peach and That’s Shore Bright. Chalkboard Nails was the first to do a distressed mani and has a tutorial for it. The basic idea is to wipe most of the polish off the brush and then paint it on to the nail in different places. It is easy nail art for those of us with shakes, just use similar colours so that they blend together. If you add topcoat straight away it looks more watercolour like than mine. I waited to put in top coat because I wanted the drag lines on my mani.
Ooh, the matching glitter top coat is a great touch!
They match perfectly 🙂
That an awesome was of shaking up that tutorial, and that topper is super cute!
Thank you 🙂
