Multi-Colored Funky French Tip Nails


I thought that while the weather was still a little bit warm, I should share a summer-y nail look that I did about a week ago.  I was really inspired by a post on MaD Manis back in July called "Naked Neon Nails" and I just had to try something similar.  So, let's see how mine turned out...

First I did 3 coats of Nicole by OPI Kim Konfidential:
Nice and shiny.  :-)
I won't comment on application since I was just playing around and being quick and sloppy.  If I'd taken my time, I'm sure it would have looked better.
This is definitely "mannequin hands" on me.

Then I freehanded on funky french tips in the following:

  • Sinful Colors Let's Meet - yellow (thumb)
  • Essie Coat Azure - blue (index)
  • Color Club Glitter Envy - green (middle)
  • Color Club You Got Soul-ar - orange (ring).  I had to thin my bottle of this some first.
  • Color Club Wink, Wink, Twinkle - purple (pinkie)

 2 coats of each tip color

Since I was just playing around, my lines are a little uneven, I didn't do any cleanup around the edges nor did I put on any topcoat.  Oh well...I was just experimenting.  I don't really own very many actual "neon" colors, so I combined nice bright colors with a couple of Color Club polishes that look neon.  Since Glitter Green from Color Club has a speckled glitter look, I tried to pair it up with all other colors that had some glitter/shimmer (that of course, did not show up in any pictures).  I do like the idea...I'm just not sure the polish textures all go together.  Glitter Green really shows up speckled, a little bit on You Got Soul-ar, and not really on the other 3.  If I do this again, I'll try to stick to either all cremes or all shimmers of the same type.

Do you think my version of MaD Mani's look measures up?
