Nails of the Week #36: Neon Black Nails

Yeah I know that title made no sense but I had no clue what to call this manicure! Going along with working on my nail art game I attempted another creative nail design. If you follow my Instagram (@catharinechang) you will know that this manicure is actually from a few weeks ago! I have some scheduling conflict on this blog and everything just got pushed back a lot but nevertheless here we are now! So armed with some neon colors, black nail polish, and nail tape, I present to you these neon black nails that was inspired from this picture here that I stumbled across while googling "easy nail art for short nails"...yes, those words exactly. So this definitely could have been executed better if I had thinner tape, you can see I realized that but it was difficult cutting the tape. Some of the edges aren't as clean as I would like them to be but overall it did give a fuzzy I kind of did this on purpose look so I'm telling myself it worked. I definitely need to work on tape placement because in my mind everything worked great but obviously once I took the tape off I basically had a big S on my thumb so....

Black was provided by my trusty Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Black Satin, which I think sadly is drying up because it is getting a little chunky. I'm considering revival drops but I've had it for so long it might not be worth it, but at the same time it's such an opaque black that dries super quick, we'll see.  For the neon colors I used butter London in Cheeky Chops (yellow), Essie in Bachelorette Bash (pink), and  Essie in The More The Merrier (green). I love the neon colors combination and they definitely have a future in my nails, I'm thinking a chevron design or ombre will be excellent!
