Neon Vacation Mani

So in my #StampingSaturday post I told you all that I got away for the weekend. J and I met up with his family in Nantucket and had a quick weekend away. It was so great to see everyone and we had a lovely time, minus the whole lobster impersonation I'm doing currently. ;-)

Of course I had to do vacay nails, so I set out to do a look that was summery and beachy. I chose to go with a sponged, random gradient of four neons and fun accent nails. I got so many compliments over the weekend on this look, and I couldn't stop staring at it myself.

To start off, I laid down a base of LVX Fantom on my thumb, pointer, and middle finger. On my ring and pinky I applied two thick coats of FUN Lacquer PayDay! Then on a cosmetic sponge I plopped down a big drop of China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely, That's Shore Bright, Highlight of My Summer, and Hanging in the Balance. I sponged it on in a random pattern on each nail.





My studio lighting washed out the neon a little, but my outdoor picture shows it off beautifully. PayDay! was the perfect accent to that neon! 

Do you have any fun vacations planned for the rest of summer?  I can't believe it's almost August already.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
