Californails #NailArtMar Day 11: Multi-Neon Brushstrokes

While the rest of the world is waiting for some sunshine and spring to happen, I'm all sunshine over here in the Caribbean. We wear bright colors all year round and I have a fondness for neon brights. Today's nail art challenge called for neons but instead of doing it for retina searing goodness I have toned it down with a black base.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Paint your nails two coats of L.A Girls Metal polish in Obsidian (black with shimmer). Allow to dry fully.
2. Using a fan brush and 4 neon colors of your choice (I used Claire's Neon minis), apply to the nail to form brushstrokes. 
3. Apply one color in one diagonal direction and then let the other color overall going in the other diagonal direction. 
4. Continue applying the colors over each other and repeat in case any color gets lost in the background.
5. Apply your favorite top coat.

I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
