neon shatter

I wanted to do something kid of fun and crazy because I think summer is officially here where I live! It's been high 70's for a week straight now =D So I chose to do a bright neon yellow from Orly called Glowstick that I used in this mani here. And over the top of it OPI's Turquoise Shatter. I didn't think about it until after I started to apply the shatter that blue + yellow=green; something that has been drilled into my head since 3rd grade or something like that. So... it didn't come out exactly how I wanted it to but it was still awesome. I've read a few other blogs saying to use white under a neon color to help it look brighter and to also use less coats so I tried that out and what do ya know! It worked! I only had to use one coat of Glowstick versus the 4 that I used before. 

I am really loving neons and I would like to get a few more to add to my collection soon!


  1. I love it! It's such a great color combo, even if blue + green = yellow!

  2. Thanks! Yeah, it was a super fun thing to wear for the sunny weather!
