More Neon! And a Question Answered

Hey guys!

Before I get into the nails I want to answer a question that was posed in the comments section about the contacts I reviewed.  Emily....All the contacts at that I have seen have a lifespan ranging from 90 days to a year once opened.  If you click on a contact to view the price and other info it's life span will be listed there.  As to needing to be measured...I'm a contact novice, this is my first experience with them.  I suggest filling out their contact us form HERE and asking them about any questions or concerns you may have!

Ok...On to today's Mani!!!

Brace yourselves, there were alot of steps!  lol

I started by applying tape (I used regular old tape cause I couldn't find my masking tape) and applying it so that it divided my nail in half diagonally, and covering the half that included my free edge.

Then I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in "Whirlwind White" to the lower half of the nail.

I followed that with 1 coat of China Glaze "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini".

Then I removed the tape and painted the top half with a pink franken.
I then added 1 coat of China Glaze "Fairy Dust" over the pink.

Next, I stamped the Fishnet design from Konad plate M57 just over the pink.

To cover the line where the pink and fishnet met the yellow, I added some stickers I got from Michael's after seeing them on Glammed Up's blog HERE (btw, if you haven't visited this blog you are missing out, to say this wonderful lady is talented is the understatement of the year!!!)

And then I looked at them and thought....the Yellow needs something!  LOL

So I grabbed one of the nail art sticker sets I got at rite aid while back, and added some cool nautical stars to the centers of the yellow!

Can we say Nail Art overload???
(Excuse the missing stickers at the tips of the Index and Middle nails, It took me a few days to get a picture)

Well my sweet readers, that's all for today!

Hope today is fantastic for you!!!

I LOVE this!!! It is sooo fabulous. :D

I've been following your blog for a little while and I didn't really think Konad was "for me" at first, even though it always looks soooo cool....but I think you've got me convinced to try it! Your designs are always fantastic.

Love, love, love this mani!

P.S. YouKonwIt does not do Rx so there is just standard sizes as far as the lenses.
Anyone looking for Rx lenses can check look for her circle lens posts and she has listed some sites that sell Rx circle lenses.
