Sticks 'n stones sunrise:)

Since today's earlier manicure lasted a whole 10 minute on my nails figured I'd try something completely different,  so I decided to do another untried post.Today I received my Sticks 'n stones from Ninja Polish and was itching to try it so I figured a nice neon base underneath it would look awesome.

For the base I started out with 2 coats of Billie French White. In case you guys haven't noticed its by far my favorite white polish. Only cost $1.25 and is opaque in 2 coats with no fussing around :). Once that was dry and I used a damp make-up sponge and used Orly Beach Cruiser, Melt Your Popsicle, and Glow Stick, all from there new Feel the Vibe collection, and created a sunset on the sponge. The water in the sponge stops it from sucking up the polish. Once the lines were on the sponge I blotted it onto a paper to take out a bit of the polish I then applied it to my nails making sure the yellow was at the base of my nail :). Once I did this to all the nails I used the corner of the sponge dipped in polish that's been blotted to fill in and missing spots. The white base really helped to make the neon's pop. Once all this was dry I added a coat of Sticks 'n stones and then 2 coats of top coat. I was actually shocked on the amount of glitter in Sticks 'n Stones. I was actually having to take some off of my nails so that you can see the base color. It was fantastic!!!





I'm really happy with this, I'm defiantly more of a bright colored nail girl and this is right up my alley. And well Sticks 'n stones is just fabulous so how much better could this get. Please excuse the crappy cleanup job I still have a few blue stains from the last manicure and some of the excess polish from the sponge wouldn't come off he he.

Any suggestions on what I should do for tomorrow?

But if you guys want to see more awesome untried polishes head on over to some other lovely ladies in my birthday group!!!

  1. Oh how funny is this - I'm totally wearing this right now over a nice bright pink - I LOVE the sponging you did though!

    Do you have striping tape? You could keep this one on, lay down striping tape and then paint a vivid blue creme over the top and then pull the tape up to reveal the strips of sponge/glitter awesome! OR if you don't have that then take scotch tape and cut out heart shapes and then fill in the heart with blue over the top.
