Now that we finally have some sunshine here, I want to wear neon! I love neon nails, they look so vivid in the sun. Do you wear neon in the Summer? I get a lot of comments when I wear neon, not all of it positive! (So rude!)
I put on two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, the best white nail polish I have ever used, then put striping tape down the middle of my nail and added a thick coat of Orly Beach Cruiser on one side.
Beach Cruiser photographed a bit darker than it is in person but it’s so difficult to capture neon, especially in the Sun. The camera reacts like my cat when I’m trying to give it medicine, “No! NO! NO!“.
Then I added some round neon pink glitter from BornPrettyStore.com. The glitter is 1.68 euro and they do free worldwide shipping AND this code will get you a further 10% off, which makes it a bargain in any language! :)

Happy St Patrick’s Day! :D
(These were my nails for the big day, and this was supposed to be posted on time, but I had technical issues)
(And no, I don’t mean I had too much green beer! :)
You are looking at the Irish Flag on my ring finger and little Guinnesses on my other fingers. Which, I thought, was the perfect representation of the day itself!
I used Essie Licorice (black), Sinful Colors Snow Me White (white), Sinful Colors Envy (green) and OPI A Roll in the Hague (gold).
Hope you all had a great day! Leprechauns for everyone!
I had to take a pic of the Irish Flag polishes too – I was feeling very patriotic! :)
I also wanted to show you the little shamrock earrings I ordered from BornPrettyStore.com. They had a St Patrick’s Day sale and what kind of an Irish girl on St Patrick’s Day would I be without shamrock earrings!? I couldn’t resist! They are too friggin cute!
They roped me in with their free samples and 10% off coupon code and now I can’t stop buying things off them! *Shakes fist in anger but then stops to admire tiny cheap earrings* :D
Last thing! I took part in the #NailLinkUp this month! Twice! It’s a really great idea run by a bunch of great bloggers – here are the details for this month and go to any of the bloggers listed below for more deets :)
and here are all the links to the bloggers that took part in the St Patrick’s Day challenge :D

I was pressed for time to do my nails this week but wanted to use Essence Pixie Dust in some way and ended up with this quick and easy funky french.
I used two coats of I Think in Pink, added white tips with a sponge and put Pixie Dust just over the white tips. I wanted to be able to see the glassfleck in Pixie Dust but didn’t want to hide the squishy finish of I Think in Pink. That’s it. Quick and easy.
Let me know what you think :)
(Oh! and I’m still wearing the free sample Jamberry Nails Black and White Stripe nail wrap on my pinkie. I’m wearing it for a week so see how it holds up. So far, I’m really impressed!)

So as you may have gathered from my recent posts, I’m a little conflicted about Valentine’s Day. I love all things pink and sparkly and heart shaped every other day of the year but there’s something weird about this stooopid holiday that makes it less of a celebration when you’re single. I still want to do nail art but the nagging single-ness stops me reaching for the neon pinks and heart shaped glitters. (My poor heart shaped glitters, they get so little love, ironically.)
So when I saw this post on mkmyday it spoke to me! Then I came across Sinful Colors Snow Me White in Dealz and fate decided for me! Black and white it is! If you like nail art then you should really check out mkmyday on tumblr or instagram. They do the coolest designs :)
A word about Snow Me White. Perfection.
It is the most perfect white creme ever. The formula is like melted butter. Two coats and done. Highly recommended. I did the little shaky hearts and dots with my Model’s Own Nail Art Pen. Then added a coat of Essie Matte About You. I’ll be honest; I only added the matte topcoat because I thought it was my regular topcoat. The bottles are identical. :)
