GOT Polish Challenge: Neon with Neener Neener Nails Shades Needed!

This week’s GOT Polish challenge theme is neon.  I thought I would love this theme, but then as I was going through my nail polish I realized I don’t really have that many true neons in my collection.  The first one I chose only looked neon in the bottle, not on the nail, so I had to find time to do another mani, and this one hasn’t worked out too well, either. 😥

I used Neener Neener Nails Shades Needed! for this theme, since it is a very bright yellow jelly base with various sizes of iridescent glitter in it.  I used this once before when I first got it a little over a year ago, and at the time I couldn’t decide if I hated it or if I really hated it. 😀  But I decided to keep it and give it another try, and I’m definitely convinced now that it is not for me.  The jelly base of this one has a tendency to be very gloopy, and the glitter just adds to the mess factor of the look.  I used three coats because the base is so sheer, but there is definitely still a VNL.  I don’t want to be overly critical, so I’ll suffice it to say that this one is just not my cup of tea.  And I mean it this time. 😛

So…what do you think?  I do love bright colors, but the texture of this one is just not for me.  Into the “give it away” pile it goes!

I purchased Shades Needed! from the Neener Neener Nails Etsy shop for $5.50.  I can’t tell if this brand is still around, honestly.  The Etsy shop doesn’t seem to exist anymore, at least.

NOTD: Neener Neener Nails Dot.Dot.Dot Over SquareHue Happy

Since this is the last weekend of summer (I’m having an inner tantrum as I write that), I decided to do something summery and fun on my nails today.  I started with two coats of SquareHue Happy, which is a medium pink creme from their May 2013 collection.  Then I added two coats of Neener Neener Nails Dot.Dot.Dot, which is a circle gltter topcoat with blue, magenta, pink, and gold glitter.  I used base and topcoat as well for the photos.

How do you think this turned out?  I quite like it!  Dot.Dot.Dot is my first foray into the ‘circle glitter’ trend, and I think it looks good!

I purchased Neener Neener Nails Dot.Dot.Dot from her Etsy shop.  It looks like it is on sale for $5.75 right now.  I purchased SquareHue Happy from the SquareHue nail polish subscription service.  The subscription is $19.99 per month in the U.S., including shipping.

Here’s hoping you enjoy this last weekend of the summer!
