Hi guys, and welcome to Day 26 of the NAGG. Today's prompt is Graffiti, and it was a prompt I was very nervous about, but also really looking forward to. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to come up with anything good for this prompt, but I couldn't wait to try anyway :)
Instead of trying to copy some actual graffiti on my nails, and probably failing, I decided to do something that just reminds me of it, and boy, am I glad I did!
For this mani, I really lightly sponged a load of neon's in random spots over a white base. The colours I used were, Color Club - Miss Robinson, BYS - Pink Panic, Pure Ice - Hot Tamale, and Pop Beauty - Radioactive, and Brave. Then I stamped the zig-zaggy image from MoYou Back to the 80's 04 with Konad Black. I top coated very soon after stamping, as I wanted a little bit of smudging to make it look like the paint has run a little bit. I think I left it a little too long though, it didn't smudge as much as I hoped it would.
I adored this mani, and I think this may even be my favourite mani from the entire challenge, but don't hold me to that :p I expected to like this mani a lot more matte, but it turns out I am undecided here. I love it either way.
So, what do you guys think of this then? I know it's a bit early in the year to bust out the neon's in such a big way, but as I have said before, I'm not really fussed by whether my nails are in season. In fact, expect more neon goodness in the next week or 2, as I haven't been able to leave them alone!
Don't forget to check out all the other ladies in the thumbnails below, I know I am looking forward to seeing all the other creations :)
