THE Ohio State Nails

One of my best friends and coworkers is n Ohio State alum. She went to the first game of the year and asked if I would give her an appropriate mani. Of course! I dug through my stash to which colors would match best.
I used two coats of China Glaze Hey Sailor and then topped it off with Gettin' Miss Piggy with It. I used Sinful Snow Me White for the base of her accent nails and stamped with Hey Sailor and Messy Mansion 06.
I then used those awesome little nail tattoo decals to finish it off. Of course I'm dyslexic and put some of them on upside down =/. I told her to show off the good hand ha! She said she got a lot of compliments and they won so I can't help but think my mani played a role.

Neon Squared

Neons are some of my most favorite polishes. They are bright and happy and so many more people seem to take notice when you're wearing an eye popping color. Of course I have to go above and beyond and add a white basecoat to make it stand out even more.
This is two coats of Nina Ultra Pro Solar Flare. I then stamped the crossword image from plate FUN2 and Orly Fancy Fuchsia (one of my all time favorite polishes).
I then added some square neon studs from Born Pretty Store with some TC. They actually had some impressive staying power and didn't lose their bright color after heavy wear.
Do you use a white under your neons? Nude?
