Have a Heart
After my “too dark for Spring” mani “Seduce Me“, I was ready for something bright, fun and refreshing. I decided to go with a new neon I picked up from the China Glaze summer neon collection for 2012, “Flirty Tankini”. This shade reminds me a bit of “Flip Flop Fantasy”, another neon by China Glaze (from their permanent collection).
Flirty Tankini is a super pretty coral neon with just the right amount of shimmer!
I was dying to use my new top coat by Nicole that is a clear base with tiny little glitters and big chunky hearts (purchased at Wal-Mart for about $9).
If you are wanting a heart on each nail, be prepared to do some fishing to pull them out of the bottle. It’s not overly convenient, but very much worth it in my opinion!
Because the hearts are so large, they will stick up off your nail a little bit. Once I had them all in place, after about a minute I top coated again with this polish (avoiding the hearts) to help seal them into the manicure. It really helped smooth out the texture on my nail and I’ve had no issues with any hearts falling off.
What do you think of this fun coral manicure? Do you have a favourite from the China Glaze 2012 Summer Neon Collection?
