Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Orly Tropical Punch
3 Coats Butter London Rosie Lee (accent)
1 Coat Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This manicure definitely was not what I set out painting the other night... I had a completely different contrasting polish as my accent nails, but it just wasn't working out. I didn't think it would need a base coat, but it definitely did, and the color scheme didn't mesh with Tropical Punch all that well. So, I started over on the accents and kept Tropical Punch as my main color. Now that I think about it... my nails are a mixture of this mani and this mani... just a different neon with good 'ole Rosie Lee. 

Orly Tropical Punch is a slightly warmer, more coral leaning neon pink than Va Va Voom. (Which I'm wearing on my toes...) Rosie Lee is a super-fine rosey pink glitter polish. The two definitely aren't matching pinks by any stretch of the imagination, and 2 or 3 years ago, I probably wouldn't have thought of wearing them together. But now? In the age of pattern mixing and working contrast... Rosie Lee and Tropical Punch make a fun combination on my nails. Application was great with both polishes, too. Three coats gave me complete coverage!

I'm not sure why I'm so obsessed with neon pink lately... but I find myself painting my nails that color almost as often now as I paint them black during fall and winter. Yikes! So... I promise... the next mani I post won't be pink, neon, coral, or blue. Actually, there's a high likelihood of gray, considering I haven't worn gray polish in sooooo long, but, I've also been thinking about white and silver... Choices, choices! What do you guys think?!? Either way... I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!
