just the tip


This was my birthday manicure!

When I get a mani/pedi done at a salon I try to do something that I couldn't do myself at home or I'll at least pick a color that I don't have. In this case, I chose to do a french manicure, which I personally find impossible to do myself. These colors are standard, but I thought the combo was really interesting.

My toes were just plain gray, and I wore gray jeans and sandals, so I had a monochromatic look going from the waist down. I wore a super bright multicolored tank top and did a dramatic eye look using blue and purple metallic shadows.

This is the kind of manicure I look forward to rocking in the warmer months. I plan on using lots of neons and glitters, as well as holographic polishes, which I've recently discovered.

Thank you!!! I love this combo too! I'm really into the idea of doing a deep dark color with that pop of super neon brightness. Another cool idea might be a navy blue with a neon green tip!
