BOOM SHOCKA LOCKA!

That's what this next mani makes we want to say. I used another one of my new Nabi brand nail polishes. This time I chose Neon Blue. I had a little bit of trouble using Neon Blue. I think it was a little on the thick side, so next time I may want to put some thinner in it.
Neon Blue was also on the sheer side. I applied three coats and this was as opaque as I got. You can tell in some of the pics where it looks thin on my nails.





You can really see the thinness in this pic where I didn't use my flash.


Next, I topped it off with another new polish. I chose Ruby Kisses (RK) Baby Blue. I tried to use RK - Baby Blue on it's own, and it was WAY to sheer, so that's why I chose Nabi - Neon Blue for the base. When you put Neon Blue with Baby Blue - you GOTSTA say BOOM SHOCKA LOCKA! lol

I can't say this enough, I totally love your blog. Thank you for the effort. (I'm sure your nails get quite a workout.) You've also inspired me to keep my nails done more often.

Today I'm wearing my eggplant purple Wet-n-Wild nail polish that I got for 70-cents (thanx Glamour mag). Very iridescent, a little streaky if you apply it over a base coat.

Brooke said...

THE PBG - LMAO! I love it!

BROOKLYNSHOEBABE - Thanks! Wow, that is the second time I have heard today that I inspired them to do something nail related - hugs from me to you :)

Your purple sounds like a nice shade, I really like the darker purples, but not soooo dark that they look black. Your wt n wild sounds really nice.

Nixxy said...

Brooke said...

NIXXY - Totally !! These might could take on your Mirror Image nails in a Fierce-Off!

Lucy said...

Oh yeah! I do love it. Looks like a beautiful ocean blue. The glitter is the sun hitting the water. Just dive in!

Brooke said...

LUCY - I'm glad you liked it. Not bad for 1 dollar polishes.
