Revlon Nail Art Neon

Someone has finally figured out that you need a good coat of white under neon to really make it pop. Enter Revlon’s Nail Art in Neon.

I bought the “Pink Glow.”  I love this color!

However… the white sucks
AND it chips fast even when you use another white under it.

 

I did my toenails with my normal Sinful Colors base coat, a coat of the Revlon white (it was streaky) and then two coats of the pink. 3 days and it was already chipping.

On my hands I did the same thing but replaced the Revlon white with a Sinful colors white that was less streaky. It started chipping at day 3 as well. Usually I can get at least 5 days out of nail polish anymore before huge chunks fall off.

I also used the Sinful Colors Nail Art in white to create a chevron pattern on one thumb. The tiny brush needed a little trim because it had a stray hair hanging out but other than that, I like it.

So maybe it needed top coat or maybe it’s time for a new base coat.
It’s a fun color however and I’ll give it another try.

The applicator shape is actually kinda nice. More like holding a lipgloss tube than a nail polish bottle. Not going to stand on the table which may affect your opinion of it though.

Mixing Nail Polishes – Lattes at Tiffany’s

I SWEAR this isn’t going to be a nail polish blog. It’s just what I’m a little obsessed with at the moment. 

 

mixing polish on packing tapeSo I’ve been looking for a warm grey for awhile so a couple of weeks ago I was mixing polishes and came across a combo I liked. Easiest way to do this is put some packing tape on the counter and mix away to determine if it’s worth the polish to make a larger batch like so (then mix with a brush.)

 

I looked on ebay and found some empty mini nail polish bottles for a decent price and ordered some. (I actually like OPI’s “You don’t know Jaques” which I found out after I bought some mini bottles.)

 

Anyway they are nice little bottles and I mixed up two different colors.

The Latte sorta grey brown color I mentioned above made using Zoya “Tao”, Sinful Colors “Snow Me White”, and Revlon’s “Hot for Chocolate” :

And the one I’m going to call “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” because it reminds me of the tiffany color (though probably not exact to be honest) made combining Sinful Colors “Snow Me White” and Sinful Colors “Aqua”:

So what do you think of my custom mixes?
And have you ever mixed your own personal nail polish colors?
