I've been wanting to get some nice pastel polishes. Ones that don't require a white polish first, or ones that aren't too sheer.
I was browsing through my local Walgreen's and saw these polishes from Wet n Wild. Inexpensive, and usually you can't go wrong with WnW.
So, I bought 3 @ 1.99. Afterwards, I headed to Denny's to grab a fruit cup.
The fruit cup is literally a cappuccino glass, filled with fruit.
Today it was mandarin oranges, strawberries, and bananas. We (my mom and I) usually get a side of hot fudge and whipped cream. Yum!
Anyway... I couldn't wait to use the polishes. I wanted to make sure they were real sheer, and I wanted to see if I would have to use a white nail polish underneath. So there, sitting at Denny's I painted my nails.
I was sooooo happy! Neither was the case! Honestly... I couldn't imagine returning a nail polish, but I think I would have done it today. Here are the colors in the bottles....And then on my nails, with a yellow by Sally Hansen and an orange by L.A. Colors.

I used a white base coat and then used a neon purple, neon yellow, neon green, neon blue, and neon pink! I just made some curvy like stripes and while they all were still wet, I dragged a needle through to make the lines. You probably could use a toothpick, but I wasn't to sure if that would be to thick. And of course I finished it off with a top coat!
These were quite easy to do... I used an old, and when I say old, I mean it could be called a fossil, nail polish from Sally Hansen called Garnet Chrome. I then used a black striper and created the designs. On my ring finger, I found what are called 'flakies' and pretty much poured them onto my nail where there was tacky polish. And then finished it up with a top coat!
This was the first design I did when I received my nail art brushes. Funny thing is, I don't really use the brushes too much. Dotting tools, yes. Brushes, not so much. I think I need to invest in getting some acrylic paints so I can start doing better designs.
