Sweet, sweet Connie, doin' her act

Good evening!

I have been having such a good time with my new fauxnad plates! I'm a little overwhelmed with the possibilities since there are so many great designs. Today, I did this mani in tribute to my co-worker. She loves pink and was terribly impressed when I told her I bought my second pink polish ever. I've said before that I just don't really care for pink. However, I can make the exception for a retina searing neon pink.

China Glaze Recycle on thumb, index, middle and pinkie
Sinful Colors in Fashion Neon on ring over Nailene French Tip White
Star stamps in Fashion Neon, Konad Special Polish Metallic Pink and China Glaze Millennium
(The metallic pink Konad polish is from my Coraline set.)

I loved how this turned out. It's so 80's and makes me think of the cartoon Jem. I couldn't bring myself to do a whole mani in the neon only because I really wanted to do something with grey and pink.
Fashion Neon applies streaky but becomes opaque in three coats and evens out nicely. I applied it over white just to speed things up and only have to use two coats. This is one of my all time favorites and made me smile all day long.

I was so inspired by this mani that I went all out for work today. I wore the only pink shirt I own and gave myself super sparkly eyes with the Fyrinnae eyeshadow samples I won. (They are so fabulous! I must swatch them!) I tried to take a picture of my eye but it came out really wonky and I didn't have time to have Matt take the shot. Essentially, I ended up with a pink and green eye look that was really pretty, sparkly and fun.

The reaction to my tribute? My girl loved it! Doing this was fun and just the start of a really great day!

So, how was your Saturday? I hope fun and relaxing!
