Manicure: Neon Madness with Ruby Wing

This will be a quick post featuring my freshly done manicure!

I don't know if it's just me, but taking two and a half hours to finish a manicure, is that normal? ;x Yup, that's how long this one took. I think primarily due to me not knowing what to do with two of the fingers. Not to mention dry time in between. 

This manicure is mostly neon with a very vivid, bright purple, just using three polishes and one nail art polish. I did have most of it planned out, just not the nail art polish. 


The three main colors that I used are all from Ruby Wing; Groupie (neon pink), Electric Firefly (yellow with a subtle teal duochrome), and Crowd Surf (vivid purple). For the white nail art polish I used Bad Chick from Sinful Colors. The three Ruby Wing polishes WILL change color in sun light, so I don't know how this will look in sun light! I'll be finding out tomorrow though :D

When I went to take photos, because of how vivid the purple is, it made my camera go wonky causing the purple and pink to blend together in the photos. So, I had to switch to my natural setting.

I think I may attempt a video tutorial for this being I now know what I'd change. Not terribly happy with the white on pink, because I would have preferred a vivid purple. But I work with what I have, especially at this time of night!

Now, to work on my May favorites! There should be plenty there, I didn't do an April one because... well... I only had two =\

    1. Thank you! :D

      I had a co-worker say the same about dots, I don't want to say they're fool proof because I've even messed them up. Starting the dot off small with a dotting tool or even a toothpick, then going over the dot again with another layer of polish to "grow" it out, is how I started with dots.

    1. The drying time is what can drag it out, which can be a pain. Not to mention, knocking into something and smudging the nail, I normally end up doing that.
