HPB Presents NEON!
It's so true... For my husband and I, Saturday's are usually more like Fridays, because that's when the free babysitters (a.k.a. Grandma and Grandpa) already had their Friday night (because they don't have kids at home anymore and can do those fun things like going out again...dammit) and are available to watch the munchkins so we can go do an adult thing. Like go grocery shopping WITHOUT the kidlets. Or clean the house WITHOUT children uncleaning as we go.
My God, we are so lame...
ANYWHO, I've got a fun post for you today! I belong to an awesome group on Facebook called Hobby Polish Bloggers. It's a great hub for all us polish bloggers to talk about the hobby and ask for advice and such. And it's just a fantastic gathering of amazing gals ^_^ I'm very happy to be a part of it, and that group has helped me many, many times in this little polish blog journey of mine.
Every month, Steph, the admin of the group, puts together a link-up for all of us to join (if we so choose) and we all create a mani inspired by a specific theme. I've been trying for months to get a mani done for these link-ups, but either press samples or life got in the way. I *finally* was able to participate in this round, and at the same time was also finally able to use the new Jior Couture Summer collection I ordered when it launched!!
I was inspired to do a design based off one of my favorite games - Gummy Drop! All those neon fruit candies in those appealing patterns called to me. They said, "MAKE US INTO A MANI" in creepy little candy voices. So I did a random pattern dotticure - I was originally trying to make a neon "wave" pattern, but it didn't really turn out too well :P
Oh! OH! But here's the best part - it gloooooooooooooows!!!
Aw yeah!! That purple though - what a brat. She did NOT want to glow. At all. Had to leave my camera shutter open for 5.5 seconds. What a snob.
I used all the colors in the summer collections sans Geek in the PINK and GOLD rush, and topped the mani off with Jior's topcoat, which they included as a freebie in my order ^_^ I'll definitely be revisiting this collection again soon with more neon goodness :D
What do you think of this design? Did you get any of the new summer colors by Jior? Be sure to check out the other manis in the inlinkz below! <3
