Try It On Tuesday!

Neon Melon, Irish Green, Intense Pink

My Try It On Tuesday post today is a little nail art and colors I haven't used before. I'm not a nail art guru or anything. I think nail art is really interesting and pretty. I never really have luck with it, but I decided to Try It On Tuesday :-).

I wanted to use neon colors and I chose Sinful Colors Irish Green and Neon Melon and also L.A. Colors striper called Intense Pink. I started by painting my baby finger, ring finger and first finger with Irish Green. I painted my middle finger and thumb with Neon Melon. I had no idea what to do from here so I topped each nail off with Seche Vite.

Once completely dry, I tapped each Irish Green nail diagonal and painted the corners using Neon Melon. I removed the tape and topped with Seche Vite again. Once dried, I added an Intense Pink stripe between the Irish Green and Neon Melon.

 On to the Neon Melon nails: I added dots and a pretty pink flower :-). I added vertical dots on the left side of each Neon Melon nails and then added the flower on the right side of the nail. I made the flower by adding dots in a circular pattern and then putting an Irish Green dot in the middle.

Before I show you the pictures I need to explain somethings. I wasn't entirely happy with this Mani when I did it. I kept it on and slept on it before I took the pictures. I didn't do any cleanup because I really didn't like them and I planned to remove it. I didn't have time to and kept this on longer than I wanted, but I did get some compliments. I'll share these with you guys, but again no cleanup was done :-(

In hindsight, I wish I would've cleaned them up because they aren't terrible for a beginner, right?

What do you think of one of my first nail art project?

Thanks for reading,
