China Glaze Shocking Pink- I'm so Rock-n-Roll Baby...

Ok... so the fact that I just used that phrase probably puts me at a -2 in the Rock -n- Roll scale...

  But anyways... I decided to revisit one of the few neons I own. For some reason I am just not that drawn to neon polishes. They are a pain to apply and they don't photograph well but when the mood strikes they can be so much fun. Well, the mood was definitely striking the second I saw these little Skully stamps on the new BM plates I immediately knew I wanted to put them over my one and only neon Pink China Glaze's Shocking Pink.
This was Three coats of Shocking Pink over a coat of CG White on White. I though adding a white base would help reduce the number of coats needed but it didn't make much of a difference. It did make the color more vibrant. I'm kinda really liking this mani.... It's cute and reminds me of my high school days lol. 

What are your thoughts on neon?

  2. I love the skull stamp, so cute! I must admit I have yet to warm up to neons, though I have recently ordered my first orange neon, I bet it's just a matter of time before I need a few more ;)
