Neon Racing Stripes


Hello, Fireflies!

Welcome to October! New month, new NCC challenge.  This month, we're doing stripes!

I love stripes. They are the masters of illusion in nail art.  For today's mani, I was inspired by a black and white design from Wondrously Polished


I just picked up some summer colors on clearance at Cherry Culture, and while I wasn't aware so many were neons, it's suprisingly okay with me.  I'm ready for Fall, but it's hard to let go of summer when you live in Florida and the temperature is still in the 90s, even if the leaves have fallen off of the trees.

So I'm happy to pair China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener, a neon lime green, with OPI Incognito In Sausalito, a deep, blackened navy blue.  It's like the best of Fall touched by the last lights of Summer.

Are you immersed in Fall colors yet, or is there still room for a glimpse of summer in your look?

  1. That green from China Glaze is so fun and bright. It really pops against the black.

    1. (Navy blue...lol) I must have bought and given away several sets of neons, thinking I was too old for them. I changed my mind!
