The Nail Files: So Bright You'll See Spots


The Nail Files Link Up



I follow China Glaze on Instagram and they posted a pic of bright pink nails with a leopard accent finger. It was love at first sight, so off to my polish collection I went.


Put on your sunglasses, ladies. It's about to get VERY BRIGHT up in here...


All set? Good.



China Glaze Pool Party and Turned up Turquoise, OPI Don't You Lilac It?, Sally Hansen Blue Me Away! and White On, Finger Paints Black Expressionism.



Two coats of the brightest pinky-orange on the planet Pool Party. It was a little streaky but turned out all right. Then, I took the end of my dotting tool and made splotches with the other colours. When they were dry, I used the brush end of the dotting tool to blob on some black around the edges. 


I originally took this picture in direct sunlight and, I swear I saw spots afterwards...and not just the ones on my feature finger. This pink of out of control! I'm still VERY sad that I can't find Flip Flops anywhere but Pool Party is a pretty good substitute.  Plus, it was on sale, so there's that too.


Can't wait to see what everyone else did this week!


Thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting!

I love China glaze. Pool party is so pretty. I think I have to get it.

Wow, I'm impressed that you free-handed leopard print. That would never happen in my house.

My MIL found Flip Flop Fanstasy for me at Sally's Beauty Supply. Maybe try there?

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

I got PP instead of FFF too. It's such a weird formula. Mine was so streaky and thick :/ It chipped really horribly on my fingernails, but I wanted to give it a second chance because I do love the color. I'm wearing it on my feet right now and it's working out a lot better.

I love your mani - :)
