Rainbow vs. Neon Tips ♥

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday ♥ (or whatever day you're living while reading this)

I hope you're all doing fine today - I know I am, since things have been going so well lately. I've been learning how much people in my life really care about me, and that really has been pretty overwhelming. Also, I'm pretty hyped about spring even though this week we've been having a bit more chilly weather here. I would be so ready for skirts and shorts but I guess the transition outfits will have to do for now.

Anyway, because of the sunny days, I've been having so much fun with colorful nail polish, and today, I would like to show you couple of designs I've done this spring:

First, these super cute neon rainbow nails with some gradient effect and matching little round studs. I don't know where I got the idea from, I guess I have seen the color scheme around the web somewhere, and just wanted go have my own twist by adding the studs.

The polishes I used were all by China Glaze, except for the orange one that is actually just from H&M. But the China Glaze shades I used were: Sun-Kissed, In The Limelight, Splish Splash, Escaping Reality and Surfin' For Boys. Studs are from Born Pretty Store.

I had so much fun making these that I don't even mind that they didn't come out perfect. They were close enough for me. Making gradients is actually one of my favorite nail art techniques, and I could do my nails always with it. But for the sake of getting better at things, I do other stuff too.

So that was the first look. But if you prefer more toned down, the next design might be the thing for you:

Beige nails with neon tips. Also pretty fun thing to create, and easy, too. (For a French tip tutorial, check out this post!) This is appropriate for most of the places you might end up to, as it is showy, but still very subtle.

Oh, and don't mind about the weird middle finger there, the nail had a little accident and I tried to secure it a bit but the end result was a mess even a full manicure couldn't cover it.

The polishes I used for this were all by China Glaze: Kalahari Kiss, Sun-Kissed, Sun Of A Peach, Flip Flop Fantasy, Escaping Reality and Surfin' For Boys. Can you see me having an addiction here? Me too.

Also, yet again I wanted to remind you, that if you happen to place an order to the Born Pretty Store, do take advantage of the discount code JVNT10 to get 10% off your purchase! It's made especially for my readers and you can use it as often as you like. I don't get paid even if you order with it, it's just something I got for you while working with them. ;)

But, what do you guys think about these manicures? And, will you try out neons for your nails this spring/summer? Let me know in the comments! ♥

Now, as usual, it's time for this girl to head to bed and catch some sleep as it's a training day tomorrow and I really need my sleep!

Have a fantastic day ♥
