Happy Friday! I have fallen a day behind with this week's Digit-al Dozen challenge due to a bad headache yesterday, but I am planning to post my last mani over the weekend! In the meantime, it's my turn to take on faeries! A lot of faeries have been done by my fellow Digital Dozen members this week, and I have loved all of them! I have been wanting to bust out my neons for awhile now and I figured this would be a great time to do it! My mani reminds me of a fun and bright faerieland!
I worked on the base of this mani longer than I would like to admit - and then covered up most of it! LOL! The inspiration for this look actually came from two separate images I found - here and here. I really wanted to try and capture the gorgeous sky in the first image for the background. After many re-dos and lots of tweaking it still wasn't right, but it was "close enough" for me.
I used a lot of polishes for this mani! I will list them all below, but keep in mind there was a lot of layering involved so I can't e sure all of the ones listed are showing. I liked this one both matte and shiny (shown below), and this may be one very rare instance where I prefer it shiny!
